Westminster College’s Foster Art Gallery is featuring a student art exhibition “Unforeseen Circumstances: Art-making at a Distance” throughout the month of April.

The exhibition features student artwork from spring and fall art courses. The works displayed in the exhibition include drawings, ceramics, sculpture, embroidery and paintings.

The exhibition title was chosen to highlight the impact COVID-19 has had on the students’ artwork, said Summer Zickefoose, assistant professor of art and gallery director. Students who have art courses throughout the 2020-2021 academic year have worked within a range of hybrid course formats, all requiring socially-distanced practices within the studio.

“These new course structures within studio art have presented challenges, but they have adapted to the circumstances with the same problem-solving and creativity expected of student creative work,” said Zickefoose.

Select pieces are for sale and prices can be found within Foster Art Gallery.

The exhibition, which is open to the public, runs through April 30.

The Foster Art Gallery, located in Patterson Hall on the Westminster College campus, is open weekdays from 9 a.m. through 5 p.m. The gallery hosts a variety of exhibitions highlighting student talent and regional, national and international artists during the fall and spring semesters.
