This Goes On The Refrigerator: Senior Studio Art Majors Exhibition

May 14, 2010 - June 6, 2010

Williams College Museum of Art (WCMA) presents This Goes On The Refrigerator, the Williams College Senior Studio Art Majors Exhibition that celebrates the culmination of each artist’s senior project. The exhibition, which will be on view from May 14 through June 6, 2010, features the work of 16 Williams College art majors: Audrey Bell, Ethan Buchsbaum, Ashley Carrera, Janay Clyde, Andrea Currie, Kristine Ericson, Ana Inoa, Rebecca Kane, Meghan Nidever, Sharon Ron, Marco Sanchez, Bret Scofield, Emma Steinkraus, Ambika Thoreson, Peter Tierney, and Michelle Williamson. The show will open with a free, public reception on Friday, May 14 at the museum, beginning at 7:00 pm. All are invited to attend.

The Class of 2010 has worked in a variety of media, including oil and acrylic paint, ink, photography, video, monotype with hand coloring, wood cut block, an artist’s book, linoleum prints, etchings, a shelter constructed of small stretched canvases, and two performances, one involving burning small sculptures made out of matches and another performance of 100 people wearing silkscreen T-shirts with “mirror image” texts. The students’ work shows a diversity that ranges from portraiture, to obsessive abstract work, to composites of Miss America, to process work that employs the “wrong” side of an etched copper plate with its stains, scratches, and accidental marks.
