Each spring, the Davis Gallery at the Colby College Museum of Art is home to the Senior Exhibition of the school’s art department. Participants have studied four or more semesters in a given medium and have had their work selected for inclusion by a jury of Studio Art faculty. The opening reception is one of the highlights of the academic year and includes student recognition for achievement in studio arts. Two studio art prizes are awarded at the opening of the Senior Exhibition.
In 2017, the Art Department began the tradition of publishing the first Senior Exhibition catalog. This color publication results from a collaboration between Studio Art capstone students under the direction of their professors and students enrolled in Professor Daniel Harkett’s Writing Art Criticism course. It includes artist statements as well as critical essays on each body of work in the exhibition.
