The Matthews presents the work of BHSU senior art and photography students April 6-26. This annual exhibit showcases the talent of the graduating senior art and photography students from BHSU. Not only do these artists get to experience having their art displayed in a gallery, they also get firsthand experience in working with an art gallery. The reception for this event will be held 5-7 p.m., Friday, April 6, the opening day of the exhibit. The exhibit is open to the public and free to view during regular gallery business hours, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday.
“We are thrilled to have the graduating art and photography students from BHSU back in the gallery. It is always exciting and interesting to see what these artists have created. We hope this experience is both positive and inspiring for them as they get ready to graduate,” comments Kirk Hauck, The Matthews gallery manager. “Please drop by the gallery and view the artwork while it is up. You won’t be disappointed.”

The BHSU Senior Art Exhibit features 16 BHSU students in their final semesters of college. This show is a requirement for graduation with a degree in either Art or Photography.
Students graduating with a Fine Art degree are Jonathan Deuter, Madalyn Bunkers, Jacqueline Fierro, William Lopez, Heidi Aldrich, Wyatt Stricker, Carissa Bellew, and Haley Friedt.
Students graduating with a Photography degree are Bryce Boser, Madison Hand, Katrina Carr, Taylor Escott, Karley Guthmiller, Gabrielle Hanson, Annette Loveday, and Sheay McGee.
“We are happy to have the exhibition at The Matthews’ art gallery for the fourth year. This space provides a fresh, professional experience for our students. We hope to continue this collaboration,” remarks BHSU art professor, Ann Porter.
