Marking an annual rite of spring, the massive doors between the galleries of Space 204 were slid back to reveal the Senior Show of Vanderbilt University’s graduating studio art majors. The eight participating seniors are Ariela Atwell, Julie Choi, Daniel Litzow, Wenhao Liu, CJ Rhoades, Helen Robinson, Hanna Rodgers, and Adriana Salinas.
“In addition to making tremendous strides in the quality and depth of their work this year, these students have put together an interesting array of exhibitions, including painting, photography, printmaking, drawing, sculpture, and installations,” said Mark Hosford, acting chair of the Vanderbilt Department of Art.
In conjunction with the opening of the exhibition, the prestigious Margaret Stonewall Wooldridge Hamblet Award was presented to Hanna Rodgers of Collierville, Tennessee. Established by Clement H. Hamblet in honor of his wife, the $25,000 Hamblet Award is meant to provide the means for travel and independent art activity for one year, culminating in an exhibition at Vanderbilt. Helen Robinson of Darien, Connecticut, was the recipient of a $10,000 award.
Senior Show 2013 will be on display until Friday, May 10, in Space 204, the second-floor gallery in the E. Bronson Ingram Studio Art Center, 25th and Garland on the Vanderbilt campus. All Space 204 events are free and open to the public. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, with special Saturday and Sunday hours noon to 4 p.m. for the duration of the exhibition.
