Ramp Gallery Exhibit — Senior Showcase 2016: sneak peek

Ramp Gallery: Senior Showcase 2016

Curated by Rachel Zheng ’16, the new Ramp Gallery exhibition, Senior Showcase 2016: sneak peek, features a collection of in-progress works and ideas of Bowdoin College’s senior Visual Arts majors.

During their last semester at Bowdoin, Visual Arts majors take part in Senior Studio, a course that offers seniors a distinct opportunity to develop an individual, expressive body of work. Seniors engage in dialogue with peers, faculty, and visiting artists who share a serious commitment to the creative process. In most cases, artists work through a variety of styles, materials, and ideas that help to develop a well-rounded studio practice, integrating the methods and techniques of the studio with a focus on conceptual concerns and interests. For this exhibition, each senior displays a small body of work alongside names of artists whose styles could potentially inspire the thematic and/or aesthetic qualities of their portfolio that will be exhibited as part of the Visual Arts Department’s Senior Showcase exhibition in May. Senior Showcase 2016: sneak peek provides the Bowdoin community with a collective portrait of the material experimentations and conceptual ideas that continue change and shift in Senior Studio.

Stop by the Ramp Gallery on Thursday, April 7th, 2016 @4:30pm (basement of HL, on the ramp to Hubbard!) for the opening reception of this exciting new show!
