Student Work Showcased in Annual Student Art Exhibition

An exhibition of photography, mixed media, drawings, paintings, sculpture, and more highlights the 25th annual student art exhibition at the Philip and Muriel Berman Museum of Art.

Running through June 4, the exhibition is a collection of work of 22 talented student artists.

“I never thought of myself as someone who would submit work to be shown anywhere, much less to my peers,” says Alex Birnbrauer ’17, an art and psychology double major. “It makes me feel as though I could go on to show my work in galleries outside of Ursinus.”

Over the course of the semester, she has created art centering on themes of gender, specifically relating to identifying as female, and consumerism.

Oriah Lopez ’18, a studio art major, says, “It feels even better to know that my work is alongside the work of my peers.” Her work focuses on gender and sexuality and the human body.

The other student artists are: Tony Alvarez ’17; Mattie Egerter ’17; Caylon Fowlkes ’17; Mary Haugh ’17; Dayna Honrychs ’17; Crystal Ngoje ’17; Emma Olshan ’17; Kayla Sallada ’17; Sophie Snapp ’17; Rebeca Torruella ’17; Breanna Tyrell ’17; Aubrey Basla ’18; Kate Bormann ’18; Teddi Caputo ’18; Mario Heitman ’18; Yanlin Li ’18; Kayla O’Mahony ’18; Sonny Rimler ’18; Sarah Wilbert ’18; and Sydney Cope ’19.

The Philip and Muriel Berman Museum of Art is one of only three percent of the nation’s museums accredited by the American Alliance of Museums. The exhibition is free and open to the public. —By Mary Lobo ’15
