Notre Dame College Presents Student Original Artwork in Multiple Campus Gallery Exhibits

Notre Dame College is showcasing original student artwork in two gallery exhibits on campus during March 2019.

A Printmaking show featuring wood block, etching and monotype ink prints by six studio art and graphic design majors is on display in the Falcons' Nest Gallery until Monday, March 18. The Gallery is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. on the first floor of the Clara Fritzsche Library Building on the Notre Dame campus.

The College’s 2019 All-Student Juried Art Show, which will feature a variety of works in different media by students of all majors, will begin the following week with an opening reception on Thursday, March 28, from 5-7 p.m., with awards presentation at 6 p.m., in the Performing Arts Center Gallery. This exhibit is expected to remain open until the last day of spring 2019 semester classes on Friday, April 26. The Performing Arts Center Gallery is located on the lower level of the College’s Administration Building.

Both exhibits and the reception are free and open to the public.

Printmaking Exhibit

The Printmaking display features the work of students in the AR325: Printmaking I and AR326: Printmaking II courses at the College: seniors Danielle Nagy and Kevin Lui, juniors Tayari Johnson and Matthew Wolens and sophomores Nina Sims and Katelyn Rheude. Nagy, who will be graduating in May 2019, will open her own senior art show on campus in April. Details are forthcoming.

In the printmaking classes, students learn to create their own artistic cuts in wood, ink the blocks and then press them on to clean, absorbent paper to make original works of art. They also study a variety of etching techniques and create one-of-a kind monoprints in the coursework.

The tradition of printmaking dates back to the Gothic and early Renaissance periods. Famous printmakers include Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Gloria Stuart and Andy Warhol.

All Student Art Show

The College’s annual All Student Juried Art Show is open to students regardless of major. Art majors also are eligible to submit entries. The contest and exhibit are sponsored by the Notre Dame Art Club and Art Department.

Cash prizes are bestowed for first, second and third place and for the Art Club Award winner. Honorable mention recognitions also are awarded.

Exhibited works may include paintings, ceramics, fibers, sculptures, photography, mixed media and assemblage. Students also may enter works on paper, like drawings, calligraphy, prints, collage or graphic design.
