Catalogue of an exhibition at the Trout Gallery, April 26-May 19, 2013.

Senior Exhibit, Art and Art History Department, Prof. Barbara Diduk, Dickinson College.

The Senior Studio Seminar is a yearlong creative journey where students immerse themselves in the studio to develop their own work...The confidence of their vision emerges full circle in this exhibition, revealing both the fruit of their labor, and an exhaustive engagement in the studio along the way. Reflected as well in the year’s work is a broad spectrum of media, from painterly abstraction to striking three-dimensional constructions. The study of art, the manipulation of matter, and its interpretation are tools which the students have used masterfully in this exhibition to create intriguing visual perspectives that demand attention.
