Art and Design Student Exhibitions on Campus, in the Community

Posted: November 8, 2018

A successful artist or designer must balance the roles of event planner, promoter, and curator. Moreover, they have to prepare and maintain a portfolio; market their work for representation, sale, or freelance commissions; seek and apply for exhibitions; and hone their resume-writing and interview skills.

In associate professor Stan Friesen’s FAR 470 Senior Seminar, art and design students gain first-hand experience in all facets of being a working designer.

"The students are producing exhibitions that range from introspective exposés to experiments in unusual media to corporate branding and surreal photographic restoration," said Friesen. "Please make time in your end-of-semester schedules to spend an evening or two to enjoy a remarkable variety of art produced by a remarkably diverse collection of students."

As a requirement of Friesen’s course, each student must present a solo exhibition. Whether the exhibition is on or off campus, students are responsible for securing the location; creating and distributing invitations and posters; promoting their show; hanging and installing their artwork; and connecting with an audience.

This is all in addition to spending countless hours in a studio, creating and refining their work.

Independently orchestrating a presentation of their work gives students valuable practical experience in a number of activities that they will be able to apply to their future careers as graphic designers, craft artisans, or fine artists.
