Graphic design seniors finish strong

The Department of Art at Sam Houston State University is presenting the Graphic Design Senior Show in the Gaddis Geeslin Gallery, and a ceremony will take place Thursday at 6 p.m. when awards are announced and given to the designers.

According to the SHSU website, “The Senior Show marks the end of a journey for students completing their Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design. Each student will present design work that represents hours of hard work and dedication.”

The Graphic Design Senior Show lasts until April 27.

“The Senior Graphic Design Senior Show is a great chance for viewers to see work by students just as they are about to venture into the design field,” Art Gallery Coordinator Max Manning said. “It is exciting to see work by creatives in that stage of their career.”

There are 14 students in the show, all of whom will have work on display.

“Each of them have a portion of the gallery,” Manning said. “In each student’s section of the gallery, they are displaying various projects they have made while in the graphic design program.”

Students have said great things about attending and being a part of this senior show. Manning shared some of what students have said about the show.

“It is rewarding for the students to have a moment to step back and look at the progress they have made during their time in the program, and they have the chance to see what they have achieved as a group as well as individuals,” Manning said. “Along similar lines, graphic designers do not always display their work in an art gallery setting, so it is a unique opportunity for the students to see their work in this context.”

The Gaddis Geeslin Gallery is located at 1028 21st Street and is open Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and noon to 5 p.m. on Saturdays.

A visitor parking permit may be obtained at the Sam South Complex at 2424 Sam Houston Avenue.
