PCA&D’s 10th annual Senior Show & Celebration
June 6, 2013
On May 3 from 5 – 9 p.m., the Class of 2013 filled five floors of the college – over 60,000 square feet – with senior thesis projects. Over 2000 people joined us for art, live music, family and friends, and the celebratory spirit that makes our Senior Show & Celebration unique in the community.
Works included represented various media from all majors, including animation and motion graphics, wearable art, graphic design, photography, illustration, painting, 3D works, printmaking, and more. Many items were sold.
Lisa DeAngelo '13 designed the 2013 event logo.
PCA&D welcomed WITF, central Pennsylvania’s public broadcasting station, as media sponsor of the Senior Show & Celebration.
Here’s how it played out on May 3.
From 4 – 5 p.m.: Private preview for the families of the seniors.
Then at 5 p.m., upper floors of the college and Main Gallery will open to the public.
At 8 p.m., upper floors close and only the Main Gallery and atrium will remain open until 9 p.m. as Lancaster’s First Friday continues.
At today’s Artist Talk at PCA&D, Sharon Core encouraged PCA&D students to be patient. “There’s no shortcut,” she said as she described the painstaking research and meticulous effort she uses her photography to recreate and interpret still life painting by artists including contemporary painter Wayne Thiebaud, 19th-century artist Raphaelle Peale, and floral artists from 1606 through 1907. Sharon Core is a NYC-based photographer whose experience as a food stylist and inspiration from contemporary artist Wayne Theibaud, inspired her turn painting from photographs the “other way around.” This image by Sharon Core, is “Early American, Strawberries and Ostrich Egg, 2007.” 23 x 17 inch Chromogenic Print.
