Check out AU’s first Senior Showcase of Visual Art, Redux! A small team of our designers took on the challenge of creating this publication from scratch at the beginning of the semester and created something truly beautiful to show off our talented graduating artists and designers. The site is officially live, take a look!
Another year in the Art Department is coming to a close. Although it marks the closing of a chapter for many of our talented students, it’s a time of celebration and recognition for all their work and accomplishments during their time at AU. Please join us on April 27 from 6-9 for the Senior Art Show reception. The reception will begin in the Vandiver Gallery from 6-7:30, then we will move downtown from at 7:30 for the remainder of the show at the Anderson Arts Center. We’d like to thank Haley Newman, Taylor Cash, and Andres Sanchez for putting together the promotional materials for this year’s show. Please visit the website for a sneak peek at some of the work that will be exhibited in the show and the artists and designers who are participating.
Also at the Arts Center, at the same time, is our Seven photography exhibition which features work of some our graduating designers and artists. That show is downstairs on the first floor of the Arts Center, so be sure to take a look and congratulate those students on their first public photo show.
This is a huge night for AUVA students and we’d love to have as many in attendance and support as possible.
It’s here! The 2012 Ivy Leaves Journal of Literature & Art is by far the best one yet. We gave out over 500 copies yesterday after the Honors Convocation, so if you didn’t get one be sure to come to the release reception this monday night at 7:00 in Vandiver Gallery. We’ll be hearing from the writers and artists who have work in the publication, so don’t miss it! HUGE thanks to the English and Design staffs for putting together a truly historical volume.
Make sure to check out the journal’s new website, too, which was designed and produced by senior designer and ceramicist, Laura Jones. You can read the publication in its entirety, in color, via Issuu on the site.
Make sure to come out to Seven, AUVA’s first public exhibition of photography. The show will open downstairs at the Anderson Arts Center on April 27 at 7:30. This is the same night as the Senior Show reception so it’s a huge night for our students!

Congratulations to the AU designers for taking home 19 AAF Greenville Addy awards, including Judge’s Choice, at this year’s Gala. We’re so proud of everyone who participated this year. It was a great night for celebrating design excellence.
