"React Show 2011: Action for Awareness"
The Department of Visual Arts upper class students at the University of the Pacific will present React; an exhibition of their art and design works in the Reynolds Art Gallery and Jeannette Powell Art Center opening April 19 through May 7. A reception for the artists will take place on April 21 from 6-9 PM, the community is encouraged to enjoy an evening of fine art, hors d' oeuvres and refreshments.
The show, composed of ten seniors and three juniors, demonstrates themes to build awareness, and call for a variety of community action. Their individual contributions are connected through a specific verb they each have chosen, which represents their work. "We hope to educate and excite individuals through art, while exhibiting the skills we've learned in our time at Pacific," stated senior contributor, Taylor Sutton.
The exhibition is a reaction to the issues students observe that are prevalent in our world today. The exhibition will be composed of photographs, graphic design, ceramics, prints, mixed media, fashion, and videos. The show highlights prominent issues in our society and shares a fresh perspective with the viewers.
Come and enjoy everything the Visual Art Department students have to offer in their capstone show!
