The Senior Art Exhibition is an annual event showcasing the talents and accomplishments of the graduating class of the Plattsburgh State Art Department. The participants are
candidates for the B.A. or B.F.A. degree and exhibit works in a variety of media, including painting, drawing, printmaking, graphic design,
photography, ceramics, and sculpture. The show represents the culmination of the
students’ 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 students’ behalf
is much appreciated.
The Plattsburgh State Art Department
invites the college and community to enjoy
our students’ exciting work and to join
us in congratulating them on this
The museum is pleased to present the artwork of the graduating class of 2009. The
students have invested an enormous amount of time over the past four years to
discover the medium that best illustrates their inner lives and present it to us, the viewer, for inspiration.
Members of the class have worked together on the development and execution
of this exhibit and the accompanying publication and programs. With the
dedicated support of their Art Department 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 Art Department faculty to present the achievements of our students.
To our students, we offer our congratulations.
