The Senior Art Exhibit
Each Spring, seniors taking part in Keystone’s four-year visual arts program host simultaneous openings at Scranton’s Afa Gallery and ArtWorks Gallery. The exhibits feature a wide array of diverse media including sculpture, ceramics, photography, graphic design, book arts, and digital media, among others.
The senior exhibit is part of the professional practices curriculum, which provides students with hands-on practical skills that help them transition from students to artists. In addition to learning the ins and outs of exhibit installation, students learn about legal issues, tax filing, business practices, promotion, funding opportunities, professional organizations, and more.
Students are responsible for every facet of the exhibit. Through this experience, Keystone students quickly discover that putting together a successful exhibit takes a great deal of effort, and creating distinctive artwork is just one part of the equation.
