Crafts Seniors Present Thesis Exhibition
'Nonesuch' runs April 27 – May 4 in Solmssen Court
April 19, 2012
The Crafts department at the University of the Arts is pleased to announce this year's senior thesis exhibition, "Nonesuch," featuring the work of 23 emerging artists in Fiber, Glass, Ceramic, Metal and Wood. Each artist will present a body of work that reflects a cultivation of technique, conceptual thought and individual voice, marking the completion of their study at UArts.
The program within the Crafts department emphasizes technical mastery of the medium as well as an understanding of contemporary issues in the field of crafts. By drawing upon their material backgrounds, students are able to make work that is not only relevant, but highly individual. "Nonesuch" promises to deliver diverse work that is on the cutting edge of craft and fine art, which speaks to the mutability of today's artist-craftsman-designer.
"Nonesuch: Senior Crafts Thesis Exhibition 2012" opens April 27 with a private reception from 5 to 8 p.m. and concludes with a public reception on May 4 from 6 until 8 p.m. The exhibition is on display in Solmssen Court in Hamilton Hall at the University of the Arts (320 South Broad Street). The courtyard is open for free public admission Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
