The exhibition, which is on view Oct. 22-Nov. 15, was organized by Andrew Havenhand, assistant professor of painting in VPA and a Leeds College of Art alumnus.
The students showing work are from VPA’s Departments of Art and Transmedia and represent a variety of disciplines. They include Mike Fong G’15 and Holly Wilson ’15, sculpture; Rebecca Aloisio G’14 and Paul Weiner ’15, painting; Marsha Mack G’15, ceramics; Alex Sheeder ’14, transmedia; Eli Show G’15, printmaking; and Jaroslava Prihodova G’16, jewelry and metalsmithing.
The students were selected to show work in the exhibition by the faculty of their disciplines.
A reciprocal show of work at SU by students from the Leeds College of Art is planned for next year.
