We are pleased to welcome you to Winthrop University’s 2014 Fine Arts Senior Exhibition website. As part of their capstone learning experience twenty-one students in the Department of Fine Arts were enrolled in ARTS 500, Senior Studio Seminar. The class required students to build individual exit websites as well as organize their senior exhibition. All three floors of Winthrop’s McLaurin Hall featured art works by candidates for the B.F.A. in Art and B.A. in Art degrees. Exhibition spaces included the Lewandowski Student Gallery; the 2ND Floor McLaurin Annex 237; the 3RD Floor Student Galleries 314 and 316; and the 3RD Floor McLaurin Hallway. Ceramics, photography, printmaking, jewelry/metals, video, collage, fibers, sculpture and painting were exhibited. The exhibition was critiqued by fine arts faculty as well as outside evaluator Brad Thomas, director of exhibitions and residencies at the McColl Center for Visual Arts in Charlotte, N.C.
Located just south of Charlotte in Rock Hill, S.C., the Department of Fine Arts prepares students to become professionals in the fields of studio art, art history, and art education. Combining practical experience, lecture and research skills, students build a foundation for a lifetime of creative and intellectual inquiry, personal growth and civic responsibility.
The degree programs within the Department of Fine Arts place a high value on students learning how to work creatively and collaboratively within their communities. The department recognizes the need to understand the ever changing global society and how it impacts our immediate surroundings. Winthrop’s Department of Fine Arts prepares students for these new challenges technically, aesthetically and intellectually.
