Eight graduating art majors will offer their capstone art projects, which span oil painting, photography, serigraphy, sculpture, assemblages and digital painting from April 4-May 4 at the Westmont Ridley-Tree Museum of Art. A free, public opening reception for “OPEN/CLOSE: Westmont Graduate Exhibition” is Thursday, April 4 from 4-6 p.m. at the museum.

“I am most looking forward to seeing the culmination of all the hard work that the eight seniors have been investing in their new bodies of artwork finally displayed in the museum,” says Meagan Stirling, assistant professor of art. “It has been a wonderful opportunity to walk alongside them as they investigate themes of identity, self, friendship and the purely formal qualities of art. They are a tenacious and inspiring group of seniors.”
