CSUDH art, design exhibitions coming in Carson

OW Staff | 4/3/2013, 5 p.m.

Artworks ranging from giant posters, rebranding identity, packaging and web design to mixed media assemblage, ceramic sculpture, and paintings--all created by 40 California State University, Dominguez Hills, studio art and design graduates--will be featured in two exhibits with the combined title of "Annual Student Art and Design Exhibitions: B.A. Graduates" in the University Art Gallery.

The Studio Art exhibition will run from April 15 to 25; the design exhibition will run from May 6-16. Both exhibitions will include special exhibits featuring photography and motion graphics created by students in studio art, design, as well as digital media arts.

As part of the art department curriculum, each graduating art and design student is required to display and install selected works produced during his or her study at CSU Dominguez Hills. For the exhibits, the students also design and publish a postcard announcement, all the gallery signage, a gallery poster, and a website documenting their works of art.

"The exhibition lets the students know their work is important and worthy of displaying to the campus and community audiences," says art and design associate professor Michele Bury. "The students also gain valuable practical experience from the process of designing, preparing, and installing the exhibit."

The graduating students will be honored at opening receptions on April 15 (Studio Art) and May 6 (Design), both from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the gallery.

Admission to the gallery and the reception is free and open to the public.

The University Art Gallery is located in room A-107 on the first floor of LaCorte Hall on the campus of CSU Dominguez Hills, 1000 E. Victoria St., Carson. Gallery hours are Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Daily parking passes are available at each campus lot for $4.
