From April 28th through May 1st, IACS seniors and juniors will be displaying some of their artwork at the Brush Art Gallery in downtown Lowell. For the seniors, students Vivian Cook, Emily Gibbs, Cassidy McAuliffe, Victoria Miller, Luke Sheehan, and Kayleigh Sorrentino will show pieces from their Senior Series. In addition, juniors Hannah Abramo, Edith Collins, Chelsea Costa, Allison DiGesse, Amber Hayes, Katharine Keenan, Jessica Newcomb, Caitlin Pichette, and Phoebe Shaw will show highlights from their portfolios.
All six seniors that are displaying their work this spring have shown their work in the past, including a similar exhibition in 2015 at Mill No. 5, also in downtown Lowell. Gibbs and Sheehan were undecided as to whether or not they will be pursuing art in college. “Study art: I don’t know, but do art: yes,” said Sheehan. Sorrentino, Miller, and Cook, however, will both be pursuing art not only in college, but also in their subsequent careers. “I’d like to teach visual arts, maybe starting out at the high school level, and then hopefully moving up to teaching college courses… that would be nice,” said Sorrentino. Miller and Cook will both be majoring in illustration, and hope to take the skills used in that area and apply them to their future work.
Make sure you see them at their reception on April 30th, from 5-7 PM, at the Brush Art Gallery!
