The graphic design and the fine arts departments came together this past weekend with an art gallery displaying works of many Cabrini students. The gallery opened Sunday April 28th from 3 to 5 p.m. with a reception and will be displayed on second floor of the Holy Spirit Library until May 18th.

According to Don Dempsey, chair of the graphic design department, this art show was like any other art show opening reception. “A lot of families came and the room was very full. I am really pleased with the turnout. I hope it will only get larger in the future.” Dempsey said.

The purpose of this gallery is to display the collective works of the fine arts department and the graphic design department’s senior classes. The art comes from classes required for graduation and serves almost as a senior thesis. Dempsey said, “This is a chance for them (students) to display their art to friends and other students.”

According to Dempsey, the students who participated in this gallery spent the whole semester finishing their portfolios and fixing their pieces for this show. Pieces such as these are fit for a portfolio that can be submitted to future employers.

Senior Andrew Johnson, a graphic design major, has work displayed in the gallery. He said his artwork is mainly done on the computer and consists of web-page designs, book covers and a design for an interactive CD program. Johnson is graduating in August and hopes to eventually pursue a career in the graphic design field. Johnson said the gallery is full of a variety of art in many forms and advises students and friends to “Check it out!”

On a final note Dempsey said, “I encourage people to go see the gallery. It is not too late. There is a guest book for commentary. It’s nice to support young, talented students and gives them an encouragement to continue.”
