An exhibition of artwork by seniors at Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts opens at the College’s Chauncey Stillman and Sill House Galleries on Friday, April 13, with a reception from 6 to 8 p.m. The exhibition is free and open to the public; all are welcome. As the culmination of their program of study, all students at the College participate in the Senior Studio. This year long, capstone experience allows students to develop a body of work that reflects their individual interests, skills and aesthetic sensibilities. Students conceive their own project and — with ongoing support and input from the faculty and their student peers ̶ execute and present it within a set amount of time. The Senior Studio Exhibition 2012 reflects the culmination of the project. Students will be present at the opening reception and available to discuss their work. Sally Seaman, Interim Vice President of Academic Affairs and Dean at Lyme Academy College, comments, “We always look forward to this exhibition. The Senior Studio experience leads students to synthesize and apply all they have learned, giving us the opportunity to witness and celebrate their unique creative voices.” The exhibition runs from its opening on April 13 through May 19, 2012 in both the Chauncey Stillman and Sill House galleries. Galleries are free and open to the public Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The College gratefully acknowledges the generous support of Outthink, Smith Insurance, Inc., and Shepherd, Finkelman, Miller & Shah, LLP for this exhibition.
