Second Installation of Bethel Senior Thesis Art Shows

The Bethel College Weaver Gallery is proud to host the second installation of the 2011 Senior Thesis Shows. The show features the work of Raymond Duttweiler, Matt Kauzlarich, Cory Naragon and Zach Woodlee. The Weaver Gallery is located in the Everest-Rohrer Chapel/Fine Arts Center. The show open now till  April 16, Mon. thru Sat. from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and closed Sundays.

“We have a lot of talent here at Bethel and I am so proud each year of what our students accomplish,” says associate professor of art, Suzanne Mauro.

The Senior Thesis Show is a culmination of overall course and advanced studio work; weekly critiques; discussions with faculty and peers; and the development of concept, creation and preparation of thesis works. Presented works range from photography, painting and sculpture.

 “My project is designing a new Bethel Pilots logo. I did research into the history of the Bethel athletic department as well as the culture and imagery of Bethel and where I believe it is heading. People can expect something different. It will be a new direction, that's for sure,” says visual arts major, Matt Kauzlarich.
