Welcome

We are pleased to welcome you to Winthrop University’s 2017 Fine Arts Senior Exhibition website.  As part of their capstone learning experience, students in the Department of Fine Arts were enrolled in Senior Studio Seminar.  The class requires students to build individual websites as well as organize their senior exhibition. The 2017 Fine Arts Senior Exhibition will be held in Winthrop's Lewendowski Gallery and Rutledge Building from April 4 – April 17, 2017. Please join us for the reception on Friday, April 7th at 6:30 p.m. in conjunction with the 29th Annual Undergraduate Juried Exhibition as well as the M.F.A. Thesis Show.
 
The Department of Fine Arts prepares students to become professionals in the fields of studio art, art history, and art education. Combining practical experience, lecture and research skills, students build a foundation for a lifetime of creative and intellectual inquiry, personal growth and civic responsibility.
 
The degree programs within the Department of Fine Arts place a high value on students learning how to work creatively and collaboratively within their communities. The department recognizes the need to understand AN ever changing global society and how it impacts our immediate surroundings. Winthrop’s Department of Fine Arts prepares students for these new challenges technically, aesthetically and intellectually.    
 
Over the past 27 years I have had the pleasure of witnessing the collective and individual growth of our student artists, scholars and educators.  From my personal artistic perspective, what has sustained my own desire to make art is the energy, imagination and productivity of students past and present who I have served.  I am proud to call many of them professional colleagues.
