The Visual Arts Program of the Lewis Center for the Arts will present an exhibition of recent work in a wide range of media by juniors in the Program opening April 19 and running through May 5 in the James S. Hall ’34 Memorial Gallery in Butler College on the Princeton University campus. The gallery is open to the public weekdays from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. An opening reception will take place on April 26 at 7:30 p.m. A screening of short films by two juniors in the Program will be presented on May 4 at 4:30 p.m. in the James M. Stewart ‘32 Theater at 185 Nassau Street. The exhibition, reception, and screening are free and open to the public.

The exhibition will include the work of juniors Sandra Carpenter, Gabrielle Chen, Gabriella Chu, MacLean Collins, Logan Dziak, Imani Ford, Gabrielle Gibbons, Gwyndolyn Goldfeder, Heather Grace, Mihika Kapoor, Paulina King, Eric Li, Helen Lin, Kathleen Ma, Rachel Schwartz, Mariah Wilson, and Jonathan Zong. The screening on May 4 will feature films by Angélica Vielma and by Anhar Karim.

The Visual Arts Program allows undergraduates to explore visual art and media and develop their creative skills in connection with a liberal arts education, often pursuing projects in which the visual arts intersect with their other areas of study. Courses are offered in painting, drawing, graphic design, media, sculpture, photography, filmmaking, and film history and criticism. Studio courses emphasize direct, hands-on art making under the guidance of practicing visual arts professionals. These juniors have been meeting together in a special seminar course, and will do so again in their senior year as they develop senior thesis projects that lead to an individual exhibition or film screening.
