Fall Exhibition Showcases Student Artwork

The accomplishments of Elmhurst College students enrolled in fall art courses are highlighted in the Fall Student Art Exhibition, which opened on Monday, December 2.

Displayed salon style and entirely filling the walls of the Founders Lounge of the Frick Center, the art represented in this show demonstrates the full range of media produced by the College’s art students, including painting, drawing, photography, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics, graphic design and digital art.

“This exhibit is an excellent way to discover the variety of courses offered in the art department," says Suellen Rocca, curator and director of exhibits at Elmhurst College. “Many media and approaches to artmaking are represented. I always enjoy seeing student work, as it reflects the growth and understanding of the artistic process.”

The exhibit runs through Friday, December 13, in the Founders Lounge of the Frick Center. The Frick Center is open days and evenings. The show is free, and the public is welcome.

The Fall Student Art Exhibition is one of roughly a dozen shows that Elmhurst College will present this academic year in three campus venues.

The College also exhibits more than 100 works in its Student Art Collection, which features selected exemplary work, purchased from graduating seniors. The collection is on permanent display on the third floor and lower level of the A.C. Buehler Library.

The library is also home to the College’s unparalleled collection of Chicago Imagist and Abstractionist Art, which explores the vibrant, often outrageous, yet precisely crafted works of Chicago artists between 1950 and the present. The collection is displayed throughout the library’s first floor and lower vestibule.

All exhibitions are free and open to the public. For more information, please contact Suellen Rocca at (630) 617-6110 or srocca@elmhurst.edu.
