Willimantic, Conn. CT - Students from Eastern Connecticut State University's Visual Arts Department will showcase their work at the Annual Senior Art Exhibit from May 3-14 at the Julian Akus Gallery, located in Shafer Hall at the corner of Windham and Valley Streets in Willimantic. The opening Visual Arts awards ceremony is from 3-4 p.m. and the exhibition reception is from 4-6 p.m. The gallery will remain open until 6 p.m. The public is invited. Admission is free.
According to Visual Arts professor Gail Gelburd, "The senior project is a capstone that gives students an opportunity to use all of their experiences and creativity to develop their own project or to work together on a real-world experience in design. The exhibit will include large scale paintings, mixed media, work created as multiples, digital projections, package design and work done for the Hole in the Wall Camp."
Akus Gallery hours are 11 a.m.-5 p.m. on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 1-7 p.m. on Thursdays and 2-5 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. The gallery is closed on Mondays and Fridays.
