PLATTEVILLE, Wis. — Thirteen University of Wisconsin-Platteville senior art students have prepared the Art Program Senior Show, a gallery exhibition of the finest works they produced in art classes. The exhibit is on display in the Harry and Laura Nohr Gallery through May 16.

The show, a required course for all art majors, provides students with training in how to plan, edit, prepare and mount a gallery exhibition. The students put together the show and edited the work as a committee, with assistance from Steve Vance, professor of art at UW-Platteville, instructor of the show and advisor for the graduating senior group. The students then completed all of the physical display work needed in preparing the event space and mounting the exhibition.

“Students enrolled in Senior Show learn how to prepare and present their own work, in a professional manner, for viewing within a public space,” said Vance. “These are necessary skills all artists must learn prior to moving on with further training in art graduate programs or advancing into professional artistic careers.”

The following students, all senior art majors graduating this spring, are enrolled in the course and exhibiting in the show: Lynea Axelson, Oregon, Ill.; Robert Brink, Chana, Ill.; Laura Grotjan, Neenah, Wis.; Christina Harris, Galena, Ill.; Ben Hying, Platteville; Robert Jinkins, Rewey, Wis.; Samantha Jochum, Dubuque, Iowa; Jenna Larkin, Platteville; Timothy Mehlhorn, Platteville; Hannah Palmer, Stockton, Ill.; Brittany Reuber; Pearl City, Ill.; Eric Sibigtroth, Algonquin, Ill.; and Kevyn Webb, Platteville.

The art program is a unit within the UW-Platteville Department of Performing and Visual Arts.
