The LeBel Building’s SOVA Projects Gallery is hosting an exhibition by senior students pursuing degrees combining visual arts with a major in another discipline.

“As a result, the works in this student art exhibition explores a wide range of topics and interests,” says the show’s curator, student Kacie Auffret.

Exhibiting students, all of whom are due to graduate this spring, include: Jude Abu Zaineh, Nicole Beno, Erika Duchene, Claudiu-Sebatian Herta, Sarah Robbins, Tayler Morencie, Nikko Ocampo, Rosina Riccardo, Erik Matos, Ashley Washburn-Hayden and Ainslee Winter.

Student’s solo exhibition explores relationship between virtuality and reality

In a technological age, what better way to explore the interplay between the online and offline worlds than through art that combines digital and mixed media?

A reception Thursday will celebrate the opening of Online | Offline: Artificial Perception in the Natural World, a solo exhibition by Nicole Beno, a fourth-year double major in visual arts and communications.

“Sometimes it seems the natural aspect of our lives as we give in to consumer society,” says Beno. “We ourselves are consumed by buying too much stuff.”
