senior art show ‘Experiential continuum’
April 26 - May 18, 2013
The College of Idaho is pleased to announce “Experiential Continuum,” an exhibition of work by the 14 graduating art majors of 2013. The show opens with a reception from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. April 26 and runs through May 18 at the recently renovated Rosenthal Gallery of Art inside Blatchley Hall on the C of I campus in Caldwell. Admission is free and open to the public between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. on weekdays or noon and 5 p.m. on Saturdays.
“Experiential Continuum” includes work by Krysti Garcia, Reinaldo Gil, Renee Howells, Chelsea Larsen, Tracey LeGore, Stacy Lewman, Jenette Noe, Kier Padilla, Allison Parrish, Jordyn Price, Kerstin Stokes, Kare Tonning, Laura Wallace and Eddy Walsh. The featured artists originate from diverse backgrounds ranging from agricultural Idaho to Latin America, and their choices of medium and subject matter are just as broad, incorporating memories of home, ideas from photographs and knowledge the artists have gained through their studies at The College of Idaho.
The title of the exhibition reflects John Dewey’s theory “that every experience takes up something from those experiences that have gone before and modifies in some way the quality of those experiences that occur later.” Each C of I artist is showing how he or she has been shaped by the experiential continuum of life through the creative process of art.
