Reception for student art exhibit set for April 10

April 7, 2015

Indiana State University's graduating art and design master students will offer a glimpse into the university's art world during the "MFA & MA Thesis Exhibit" through April 17.

The exhibit represents their growth as artists and success as students, each channeling their passions into their artwork. Caitlin Crisp captures the beauty and value of orphans in Myanmar through her lithography, while Chenfei Zhang demonstrates the use of graphic design in the corporate world. Stories of survivors and their portraits form a powerful message of hope in the misted of tragedy and abuse. Alexis Rusch's photos honor the strength and perseverance of those survivors.

This exhibit is a creative display of graphic design, lithography, and photography skills. It illustrates just a few of the venues that art students can use their talents.

A reception is set for 4-6 p.m. April 10 at the University Art Gallery.

The exhibition is free and open to the public. The University Art Gallery is located in the Landini Center for Performing and Fine Arts at 7th and Chestnut streets. Gallery hours are 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday-Friday and 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Thursday.

Free group tours are available upon request. For more information, call Grace Pringle at 812-237-3720.
