“I’m blown away,” says Carrie Flaspohler, Gallery Director of the Finlandia University Gallery as she reflects on the bi-annual alumni exhibit that opened to the public on February 10, 2022. “The high quality and the diverse forms of artistic expression exhibited makes me so proud of the International School of Art & Design alumni. There is something for every viewer to enjoy in this year’s exhibit, including tailor-made hats, sculpture, photography, mixed media, painting, ceramics, fashion design and even a music video directed by one of our alumni.
Finlandia alumni from across the United States and as far away as Malta, an archipelago in the central Mediterranean, sent work for this year’s exhibit. “We have so many professional artists across the globe that are working and creating art,” notes Flaspohler. “It is with great pleasure that I bring their work together in an exhibit that celebrates their talent and commitment to the arts. During the difficulties of the past two years, I believe we as a society have seen the power of the arts to reflect the human experience, to both soothe and challenge, and ultimately to ask the viewer to look within.”
