Westmont Seniors’ Art Exhibit Employes Myriad Mediums

Fourteen graduating art majors will offer their capstone art projects, which span painting, drawing, sculpture, ceramics, performance and video, April 6-May 6 at the Westmont Ridley-Tree Museum of Art, 955 La Paz Road.

A free, public opening reception for “As of Yet Unknown” will be 4-6 p.m. Thursday, April 6.

“This year's class projects engage a variety of subject matter from works that draw on personal enjoyment with nature to intoxicatingly sparkly works encrusted in glitter,” said Nathan Huff, Westmont assistant professor of art.

“Others use their art to challenge cultural norms and bring up discussions of politically charged topics including gun control, transient experience, and culture's propensity to sexualize objects,” he said. “I am looking forward to seeing the diverse range of media and concepts presented from this year's graduating class.”

The show features graduating seniors Sahara Barrett, Beau Brown, Briana Gaultiere, Ryn Grotelueschen, Jenna Haring, Alyssa McKee, Judah Milner, Thomas Rubio, Aly Smith, Arianna Spiller, Sawyer Tautz, Bailey Tripp, John Wright and Benjamin Zacaroli.

Ken and Francie Jewesson are sponsoring the exhibition.

The museum is open 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Friday and 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturdays. It is closed Sundays and college holidays.

For more information, visit or contact the museum at 565-6162.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
