Bachelor of fine arts graduating seniors in the WVU College of Creative Arts will exhibit their final projects in the Creative Arts Center’s Mesaros Galleries, now through May 15.

“I am very proud of this exhibit, which reflects the spirit of our students’ dynamic growth. This all-inclusive exhibition is unique among the many exhibits seen this year in the division, because it represents the culmination of our senior capstone projects for all the major studio areas,” said Alison Helm, chair of the division of art and design.

“This showcase of artwork in all media highlights the talent of these accomplished artists and designers. These works underscore the notion of freedom to explore and grow which is so critical and central to the field of art and design.”

Students graduating with a BFA in art and design this spring include Jenna Leigh Bonitatibus, Catherine Emily Byers, Daniel Robb Caryll, Michael Sean Crossan, Andrea Ruth Denniston, Laura Kathleen Evert, Samira Ghadimi, Sarah Marell Hess, Adam Benford Johnson, Matthew William Jones, Sabrina Kay Jones, Sara Marie Jordan, Erin Beth Murphy, Sage Elise Perrott, Christopher Dale Porchiran, Amy Jo Ramsey, Elizabeth Paxton Ruwet, Jacob Tyler Smith, Erica Jacqueline Staley, Elizabeth Paige Toler, Bianca Patricia Trevino, Joseph Anthony Trotto, Carla R. Witt Ford and Kathryn Jo Peno.

The gallery hours are Monday through Saturday, from noon to 9:30 p.m. The galleries are closed on Sundays and University holidays. All Mesaros Galleries events are free and open to the public.

In addition, the galleries will be open during the College of Creative Arts Convocation on Saturday, May 15 at 7:30 p.m. inside the CAC.
