“The Bachelor of Fine Arts Exhibition provides the Department of Art, the Boone community, parents, family and friends an opportunity to gather together and celebrate the accomplishments of our graduating BFA studio students,” Grady said. “This year’s group of students has worked tirelessly developing exceptional work in the areas of drawing, printmaking, fibers, painting, metals, ceramics, sculpture, and installation. Their perseverance has resulted in an exceptional show that represents the quality and diversity of the art department. This year’s exhibition is exceptionally special in that each student has been working with multiple forms of art media, expanding the boundaries of what the art department really has to offer.”
