Pittsburg State University Art Department’s
Senior Art Fair
Wednesday, December 3rd
2nd Floor Gallery
The PSU Art Department’s 1st annual Senior Art Fair will showcase the work of fourteen undergraduate artists working in a wide range of media including painting, ceramics, jewelry, illustration, photography, printmaking and more! Artwork, handmade crafts, and other items created by each artist will be available for purchase in the 2nd floor gallery of Porter Hall on Wednesday, December 3rd, from 10am-12pm.
This art fair is an opportunity for our senior art students to show off the work they have created over the course of their studies here at PSU, and for them to engage with the community as artists and businesspeople. The event is the culmination of the Senior Art Seminar, a course in which students learn important skills in marketing and business strategies for artists. Senior Art Seminar students have spent the past semester building their personal brand by designing promotional material, creating websites and portfolios of their artwork, and connecting with online communities through social media.
Assistant Professor Emmalyn Gennis is the instructor for the Senior Art Seminar course. “This is a great chance for the community to get to know our students and the work that they do, and to be able to take home a piece of art with them,” she said. “I’ve been impressed with what I have seen the students creating for this event; they will have a wide range of items for sale, such as toys, cards, and art prints, that would make excellent holiday gifts.”
The artists presenting and selling their work at the fair include Lisa Bogart, Jacqueline Denton, April Huninghake, Jared Jennings, Catherine Jepson, Jeremy Kelly, Rebekah Parrish, Rudi Rodebush, Sylvia Schultze, Jenna Spencer, Kelli Carter, Kendra Wallace, Emily Westhoff, and Nanxuan Zheng.
