This year’s Muhlenberg College Studio Art Honors thesis class, including Danbury’s Nicolas Savo, showcased their work in an exhibition at Gallery Petite in Brooklyn, New York on Saturday, April 9.
A few hours of driving in a Muhlenberg van brought the students to the gallery where they immediately began to organize their exhibitions. It was truly a group effort; each played a part in deciding which works would hang on the gallery walls.
The honors thesis is a continuation of the fall semester cumulative undergraduate experience. Having shared a classroom for several months, the students were very comfortable with each other and valued each other’s opinions when it came to snagging the culmination of a year’s worth of work.
After the group finished setting up the exhibit, they toured a few galleries in Brooklyn before having dinner with some faculty and staff from Muhlenberg’s art department.
The Galerie Petite exhibition opened at 6 p.m. and welcomed family, friends and walkers. Artists welcomed visitors throughout the evening and the long, exhausting but exhilarating day came to an end when the group returned to campus.
Studio art students participated in the opening of a second spring gallery on Monday, May 2 at the Martin Art Gallery in the Baker Center of the Arts at Muhlenberg College.
