Now running from April 11-May 5, the Bachelor of Fine Arts Studio Art Thesis Exhibit is at the Museum of the White Mountains/Karl Drerup Art Gallery, just up the road past the Lamson Library. This showcase features the artistic works of several PSU seniors ranging from impressive oil-based paintings to more modern examples of contemporary practice.

As stated in an introductory declaration of the exhibits main focus: “The BFA exhibitions celebrate students graduating from PSU’s intense, highly focused professional programs. Throughout the year, BFA in Studio Art students delve into personal themes, motifs and media to achieve a mature body of work, culminating in this exhibit.” 

There is a vast range of art pieces available to see. There is a collection of cat paintings displaying the artist’s love of the feline creatures (an example pictured titled “smol frens”). This collection was created by Raeanne Bujead.

The intent of the work is stated, in the artists own words, next to the panel: “Look at me!’ shouts the painting, ‘and behold my glory.’ But the painting does not speak. ‘Feast your eyes on me,’ insists the cat, ‘and appreciate my beauty.’ But she does not speak either. Perhaps it is this beauty, this allure, that couples the personality of the cat with the art of painting.”

Another interesting work is a series of oil paintings by Felicia Wells. The paintings are actually done on a plate of aluminum to go along with her artistic recycling motif. Her statement reads: “My intent is not to educate my audience about the ramifications of a disposable way of life. Instead, I offer a second life for these cans, whose intended purpose ends immediately after the consumption of their contents.” 

This exhibit will continue to be open for the next few weeks, and is completely free to the public.
