Cecilia M. Esposito
Director, Plattsburgh State Art Museum

The museum is pleased to present the creative work of the BFA class of 2012 and the exhibit of Japanese prints from the permanent collection curated by the Museum Studies Minors. The Art Studio students have invested an enormous amount of time over the past four years to discover the medium that best illustrates their inner self and present it to us, the viewer, for inspiration. The Museum Studies Minors come from various programs on campus including History, Anthropology, Art History, and the sciences with a goal of working in a museum.

Members of the class have worked together on the development and execution of the exhibits and the accompanying publications and programs. With the dedicated support of their faculty sponsors, each student has shown maturity and growth in their work that will prepare them for advanced study in their area of concentration.

The Plattsburgh State Art Museum staff takes great pride in our collaboration with program faculty to present the achievements of our students.

To our students, we offer our congratulations.

Chair, Art Department

The Senior Art Exhibition is an annual event showcasing the talents and accomplishments of the B.F.A. graduating class of the SUNY Plattsburgh Art Department. The participants exhibit works in a variety of media, including painting, drawing, printmaking, graphic design, photography, ceramics, and sculpture. The show represents the culmination of the studentsí undergraduate education, which begins with a broadly based introductory curriculum in the visual arts and art history and builds towards the body of work presented here. The students are to be commended for their devotion to their art and for the many long hours of studio and classroom effort necessary to achieve such excellent results. These emerging artists are also responsible for the conception and realization of the show, including the production of this catalogue. Their intellectual capability, aesthetic judgment, and creative strength are thus well represented in every aspect of the exhibit.

The faculty of the Art Department would also like to convey its gratitude to the Director and staff of the Plattsburgh State Art Museum for their assistance in bringing this project to fruition. Their generous expenditure of time and effort on our studentsí behalf is much appreciated.

The SUNY Plattsburgh Art Department invites the college and community to enjoy our studentsí exciting work and to join us in congratulating them on this impressive achievement.
