re:WORKS, our most recent exhibition, opened on Friday, March 22, with a very well attended reception, complete with live music. The exhibition includes works from St. Lawrence University’s permanent collection and “reworks” by students in Melissa Schulenberg’s art and art history spring 2012 senior-year experience (SYE) class. Each student selected from two to six art objects from the collection and then created new works based on those selections.
Each of the students gave a short talk about his or her work and described how art work from the University’s collection provided inspiration for the final project. The students in the exhibition are Mike Cianca, Alex Duane, Evan Haynes, Alli Howe, Courtney Kuno, Olivia McManus, and Lindsay Tarolli. I hope to put up some installation shots soon.
Students from The Annex Performing Arts Theme House (just across the street) provided music, and added so much to the reception’s lively atmosphere.
