BFA Exhibition 2010 Opens at Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts

Old Lyme, CT – An exhibition of art work by graduating seniors at Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts opens at the College’s Chauncey Stillman and Sill House galleries on Friday, April 16, 2010 with a reception from 5 to 7 p.m. The exhibition is free and open to the public; all are welcome.

As part of their degree requirements for the Bachelor of Fine Arts, all students at the College are required to complete the Senior Studio over the course of their final year of studies. This project allows students to develop a body of work that reflects their individual interests, skills and aesthetic sensibilities.

Students conceive their own project and, with ongoing support and input from the faculty and their student peers, execute and present it within a set amount of time. The BFA Exhibition 2010 reflects the culmination of their Senior Studio. Students will be present at the opening reception and available to discuss their work.

Laura Zarrow, Vice President of Academic Affairs and Dean at Lyme Academy College, comments, “The Senior Studio experience leads students to synthesize and apply all they have learned, allowing us the opportunity to cultivate and celebrate their unique creative voices.”

The exhibition runs from its opening on April 16 through May 22, 2010 in both the Chauncey Stillman and Sill House galleries. Galleries are free and open to the public Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

This exhibition is made possible through the generous support of Smith Insurance, Inc., and the Homeland Foundation, Inc.
