Fine Arts Thesis Exhibit to be Held at Gallery at Bancroft Street

The Creighton University Department of Fine and Performing Arts and The Gallery at Bancroft Street Market present the fall 2009 Bachelor of Fine Arts Thesis Show titled “proportion, $!©” by degree candidates Bridget O’Donnell and Angie Seykora.

The exhibit runs noon to 4 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays, Dec 6-Jan 3 at The Gallery at Bancroft Street Market, 2702 S. 10th St. An opening reception for the artists will be held 7-10 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 5.

Exhibition and Artist Information:
Proportion can be defined as the size of elements and their relationship to one another and the observers’ expectations. The word sic may be used to show that an uncommon or archaic usage is reported faithfully.

Bridget O’Donnell uses the medium of photography as a means of examining herself and the world around her. Her work deals with concepts of identity and socialization within a world where reality and artificiality are often indistinguishable. O’Donnell will be receiving a bachelor of fine arts with an emphasis in Photography and a bachelor’s in English, with an emphasis in Rhetoric and Composition.

Angie Seykora creates organic forms primarily fabricated in welded steel, investigating scale and form through structural compositions. Seykora’s work for this exhibition uses scale contradictions to redefine the known and familiar. Seykora will be receiving her bachelor of fine arts with an emphasis in Sculpture. Her future plans include attending graduate school for the Fine Arts.
