“The Senior Graphic Design Exhibit” hilghlights culmination of student artwork

A group of 13 art students at Sam Houston State University showcased their original works as part of the 14th annual senior graphic design exhibit.

Held in the Gaddis Geeslin Gallery, the exhibit represents a culmination of student work over their four years at SHSU. Each student contributed at least 10 of their best pieces in their professional portfolio from their last four semesters of schoolwork and their own freelance work.

“This is their final show before they graduate so it is showcasing all the graphic design work that is in their professional portfolio,” said Chuck Drumm, associate professor of art.

On display is a wide range of artwork from different media including posters, logos, t-shirt designs, package designs, brochures, book covers and more.

The exhibit, which opened Tuesday, features the work of students Deborah Clanton, Sabrina Coronado, Andrew Gehrke, Marvin Guzman, Kevin Harris, Stephanie Herrera, Diana Mendoza, Meagan Mitchell, Amanda Montgomery, Christopher Moore, Kenneth Smith, McKenzie Smith and Katelyn Talbot.

The exhibit is an opportunity for the SHSU community to view the work of seniors who are leaving in hopes of greater endeavors.

For students, the exhibit also serves as a learning experience for after graduation.

“I have learned that you can be hard on yourself, but don’t be too hard on yourself because anyone can get a job,” said Deborah Clanton, a senior graphic design major.

There will be a closing reception from 6-8 p.m. Thursday in the gallery to celebrate the accomplishments of these soon-to-be graduates.
