Time: Opening reception from 4 to 5:30 p.m.
Date: Thursday, April 18, 2019
Place: Faulconer Gallery, Bucksbaum Center for the Arts, 1108 Park St., Grinnell
Prizes will be awarded and refreshments served during the opening reception. BAX is an annual exhibition of works by advanced third-year students and seniors. With support from Faulconer Gallery staff, students manage all the exhibition details: from the submission of proposals to selection of a juror, to the installation process, and to the awarding of prizes.
The 2019 exhibition includes works by 23 students, including photographs, drawings, sculpture, and installations, among others.
Studio art majors Charlotte Richardson-Deppe ’19 of St. Paul, Minnesota, and Anne Rogers ’19 of Chicago took the lead in organizing the 2019 exhibition.
“We are really enthusiastic about BAX this year,” Richardson-Deppe says. “Our juror is Veronica Casado Hernandez, a fiber artist from Chicago. “We have a strong group of third-year students who submitted exciting work this year. Overall, it is a terrific exhibition, working through diverse media and presenting works from both art majors and non-art majors.”
The exhibition remains on display through May 20 during the Faulconer Gallery’s regular hours of 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
