Cornish College of the Arts is having their annual Art and Design exhibition called “The Visual Arts 2017 BFA Exhibition.” According to Rosemary Jones, the Director of Communications at Cornish, the event will be hosted from May 3 to 7, and May 10 to 14 from 1 to 6 p.m. The grand opening of the showcase will be April 28 from 5 to 9 p.m.

There is more than just paintings. In past years, there have been holographic videos, student animations, moti on designs, sculptures, and many more designs. This year interior architecture, film and media, design, and art will be showcased.

All galleries will be free and open to the public on Cornish’s South Lake Union campus in Centennial Lab, showcasing Art/Film & Media. In the Beebe Building on the Cornish campus, there will be Design/Interior Architechture.

314 Pies Food Truck will be catering the gallery with food available for purchase. Light refreshments will be served at the event as well.

The art displayed will be products of Cornish’s senior class. This will be their final showcase as students. Their biographies and portfolios will be on Cornish’s website, www.cornish.edu, until May 14. There will also be a page for the exhibition on Cornish’s website, where some pieces of students’ art will be shown along with a short description written by the artist. The artists will be there to discuss their work and answer any questions the public might have, or just to talk about their piece.

Some students at Riverside are not planning to go to the event. “I don’t like art,” said junior Ariel Thompson. “It doesn’t intrigue me.”

But others want to attend. “I don’t know if I’ll be attending, but I would go,” art and drawing teacher Christian Miller said.

Miller also stated that he works with Cornish because his students take a field trip to Green River Community College annually, and a representative from Cornish comes and interviews the students.

Senior year at Cornish is more than just the art exhibition. Their website states that they participate in cross-disciplinary critiques and reviews. Professional practice is embedded in their studies and these skills are applied throughout the year via networking, commissions, self-promotion and related writing.
