Graduate and undergraduate students were hand selected to submit framed prints on the gallery walls, as well as three-dimensional book art pieces in a display case. Students showcased were undergraduates Tyler Balogh, Se Ryung Kim, Caitlin Kerrigan, Erin McAdams, Keisha Mrotek, Ian Powell, Ronald Robles, Ryan Vicente, Jen Wright and Nina Wright. The graduate printmaking department was represented by Yishu Wang and Helen H. Wu.
The Academy gallery at The Cannery allowed the students to also include a print bin, allowing art appreciators to walk home with the work from our emerging artists!
