The 2004 Senior B.A. and B.F.A. Exhibition showcases works created

The exhibition runs from Saturday, April 24, through Saturday, May
22, 2004. A preview reception will be held Friday, April 23, from
The 2004 Senior B.A. and B.F.A. Exhibition is a culmination of
these students' academic programs, and explores their choice of
medium and subject matter to create their unique, interpretive styles.
Drawing from such diverse areas as French ironwork, figurative studies
and designs from the 1960s as sources for inspiration, these artists
present a reflective view of the world. Sensuality, the tension
between psychological and perceptual realities, and the interaction
between shapes, lines and colors are just some issues explored by
these talented, emerging artists.
UNH's 2004 B.F.A. students include Alexis Carter, Lee; Mary Emerson,
Rockport, Maine; Dara Engler, Midlothian, Va.; Carolyn McColgran,
York, Maine; Jennifer Meanley, Wolfeboro; Erik Scheuring, Mont Vernon;
and Tim Smith, Lee.
