A piece of clay, a hunk of metal, a blank canvas. What do you see when you look at them? Do you see a simple object or do you see a way that it can come alive?

Baldwin Wallace features a very fine art school, teaching students to express their creativity in a wide variety of media. This creativity yields interesting and provocative pieces. Student artwork is not always readily viewable on BW’s campus. This opens up the opportunity for students to interact with art that they might otherwise never encounter.

The Fawick Art Gallery, located in Kleist Center for Arts and Drama, will soon be hosting the annual Senior Art Show wherein students will exhibit some of their best work for the world to see. On display will be a wide variety of student pieces that are, in many cases, on sale to the public with prices from $30-1300. The show will run February 24-March 24 (closed during the week of spring break).

Pieces range from the abstract to the figurative, from the provocative to the humorous. Works are in various media including oil paint on canvas, sculpture, jewelry and many others.

Aristotle once said, “The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things but their inward significance.” This year’s Senior Art Show participants have most certainly have achieved this aim.
