The Cazenovia College Art Gallery in Reisman Hall will host the 2011 Visual Communications Senior Exhibition, titled, “FINAL PROOF: Designed, Sealed & Delivered.” The show runs from Friday April 1 through Monday April 18, with an artist’s reception scheduled from 4 to 6 p.m. on Thursday April 14.
“More than 20 students will exhibit work they feel represents themselves as visual communicators,” Laurie Selleck, associate professor of visual communications said, “The show will be an excellent sampling of what the Visual Communications Program at Cazenovia College has to offer in the way of educating students for their future careers in graphic design, web/interactive design, advertising design, and illustration/animation.”
Katelyne M. Frink, of Cazenovia, is a graduate of Cazenovia High School and Cazenovia College senior participating in the exhibition. “Tie, unite, associate, relate – all of these words mean the same thing: connection. That is the number one goal of mine, along with providing a powerful message,” she said. “I want to move the viewer to evoke the desired response. To succeed would mean I made the connection.”
Antonio J. Bennett, of Stamford, Conn., is another senior whose work will be featured in the exhibition. “I’ve never been one to tie myself down by attaching myself to one title. With interests in fashion, music, design and more, I consider myself a connoisseur of all things modern. Having a passion for such a variety of interests allows me to be inspired daily,” he said. “This inspiration reflects throughout my work, with design that is clean, innovative, and fresh. With a developed drive to do what I desire, mixed with the ability to research in order to reinforce my motivation, I’m ready to show my design to the masses.”
Felicity R. Jones, of Hartford N.Y., is a Cazenovia College senior who has previously been recognized for her art, having won the 2011 Lend A Hand national poster contest. Of her work, Jones wrote, “Bold, unique, fun, confident, and original is not only who I am as a person, but who I am as a designer. I have a deep appreciation for things of the past, which comes through in my design style. When designing for clients I do so with originality, heart and confidence, producing pieces that bring their vision to life.”
The Cazenovia College Art Gallery in Reisman Hall is located on the corner of Sullivan and Seminary streets, one block from Albany Street. Exhibitions and receptions at the gallery are free and open to the public. The building is handicap accessible.
