Fine arts degree candidates to open senior shows this weekend

William C. Warner of Baldwinsville; Zachary Weinburg of East Blue Hill, Maine; and Wunetu Tarrant of Southampton, all December candidates for the bachelor of arts degree in fine arts from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at Alfred University, will simultaneously open their senior shows on Saturday, Dec. 5, from 4-7 p.m. The public is invited to view the displays.

Exhibition spaces can be found in the Sculpture Gallery and in the Mailroom in Binns Merrill Hall. Exhibitions will remain up through Tuesday, Dec. 8.

Each of the student’s work differs from the others, not only in terms of how he or she presents the work, but also in the food, flowers and music for the reception.

The AU Senior Shows, which are a requirement of graduation from Alfred University’s acclaimed art programs, have become major attractions for art lovers from throughout Western New York, drawn to Alfred for the openings by the opportunity to see work by some of the country’s most promising young artists.

Visitors know that in a few years, the students they see exhibiting at senior shows will be among the best known artists in their fields, whether it’s ceramics, glass, electronic arts, painting, drawing, photography, or sculpture.
