Five UNK seniors have their artwork on display at the Walker Gallery Exhibition senior show which opened Monday, March 22.

The exhibition explores the full range of creative works and multiple avenues of interpretation. From sculptures by Rivkah Addy and Charles Schluckebier to drawings by Lauren Trimble and Rebecca Evers and ceramics by Tracy Zelinski, the exhibition is sure to remind attendees of the rich artistic talent UNK students possess.

The exhibit will run until Tuesday, March 30, in the UNK Fine Arts Building. The Walker Gallery will be open to the public and is free. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. A formal reception will be held on Sunday, March 28.

According to art and art history lecturer, John Fronczak, the exhibition combines a retrospective of works that have been created over the past three to four years, as well as new works, by each of the participating art education senior candidates.

Ceramics, drawings, prints, painting and bronze and concrete sculpture and other forms of visual expression will be displayed during the exhibition.

 “The theme of this exhibition revolves around the inherent connections between the artwork on display with each student’s burgeoning and developing teaching approach/philosophy,” Fronczak said.
Aside from the art work displayed, there will also be art education and studio art classes during this week. Studio classes are hands-on art media classes: drawing, painting, printmaking, ceramics, sculpture, glass-blowing and graphic design.

“The students work in large spaces also known as 'labs,’ as in the drawing lab or the painting lab.  In these labs, or studios, the students work on their visual under the direction of an art professor or lecturer,” Fronczak said.
Art education is associated with the department of education.  This is a program of the department of art and art history dedicated to the training of art teachers, usually K through 12.
