Art students present senior exhibition
April 11, 2013
UW-River Falls seniors Mackenzie Casey, Patrick Hamilton, Courtney Hintermeyer and Colin McGinn will present their Senior Exhibition in Gallery 101 of the Kleinpell Fine Arts building April 16-23.
Casey will present ceramic sculptures, Hamilton will exhibit glass and steel sculptures, McGinn will display felted hats, and Hintermeyer will show lithographs and intaglios.
Casey, a fine arts and art education major with a Spanish minor, is from River Falls. She is attracted to working with clay because of the physical processes involved in creating large sculptures. Casey works almost exclusively with rabbit forms because of their expressive qualities, primarily their ears.
Hamilton, from Des Moines, Iowa, is a fine arts major in glassblowing and sculpture. He also minors in horticulture and French.
He creates sculptures in glass that are playful representations of the natural world. He uses these familiar forms to address troubling aspects in our modern world.
Hintermeyer, from Plymouth, Minn., is a broad area art major with a minor in psychology. She loves the process and versatility of printmaking, specifically the delicate nature of lithography and the expressive lines of intaglio. Hintermeyer’s prints reflect the process of growing up and the lessons that are learned along the way.
McGinn, a broad area art major from Afton, Minn., creates felt hats that are inspired by his love of nature.
He is drawn to felt because of the meditative process, and the durability of the final material. His forms and designs reflect an aesthetic heavily influenced by the wooded environment he grew up in.
A reception will be held from 5-7 p.m. on Friday, April 19, in Gallery 101. The event and exhibit are free and open to the public.
The art may be viewed at regular gallery hours: 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. on Monday-Friday and 2-4 p.m. on Sunday. For more information, contact the UWRF Art Department at 715-425-3266.
