"The After Show" at Reflection Gallery April 23 to August 23
HANCOCK, MI - The Finlandia Reflection Gallery, Hancock, will host a multi-disciplinary exhibit of artwork created by students in the International School of Art & Design from April 23 to August 23, 2012.
An opening reception for "The After Show" will take place at the Reflection Gallery on Monday, April 23, 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. The reception is free and open to the public; a light lunch will be served.
"The After Show" includes artwork by ISAD senior students; artwork entered in, but not selected for, the university's recent Juried Student Exhibit; and additional artworks created by Finlandia Art & Design students. Much of the artwork will be available for purchase.
Reflection Gallery public relations director Audrey Small, Iron Mountain, says that the purpose of "The After Show" is to present an equal opportunity for all Finlandia Art & Design students to display their work in a gallery setting.
"There will be many times when you put yourself and your work out there, only to be rejected," reflects junior Cait Spera of iron Mountain. "With that said, however, The After Show gives the public a chance to see the work of all the art students at Finlandia."
"What's cool about this show is that just because you didn't get to the top the first time, you can still be rewarded for your hard work," notes student Shaela Morin of Iron Mountain. "There are many talented, hardworking Finlandia student-artists. The After Show encourages us to keep trying."
The Reflection Gallery is located on the second level of Finlandia's Jutila Center campus, 200 Michigan St., Hancock.
