Six senior seminar students from the Fine Arts department are exhibiting their work in the Joseph and Bess Kindlon Hall of Learning through January 13, 2010. The artwork reflects a semester-long course of study to pursue a body of consistent work for their final graduating portfolios. “This is a wonderful opportunity for our students to exhibit their work on campus, develop experience in professional artistic exhibition activities and exhibit their work with Benedictine University’s eclectic art collection,” said Teresa Parker, curator of the University’s art collection. Participating students are: Michael Albanese, son of Michael and Barbara Albanese of Warrenville; Romana Jankowski, daughter of Lawrence and Carol Jankowski of Des Plaines; Sarah Mrozinski, daughter of Jeffrey and Debbie Mrozinski of Glendale Heights; Nick Pulliam, son of Daniel and Emma Pulliam of Springfield; Jake Ragsdale, son of Jerry Ragsdale of Bolingbrook and Kathy Ragsdale of Wheaton; and Eric Smith, son of Eric and Dina Smith of Bartlett. The exhibition is located in the atrium area on the second floor of Kindlon Hall. Admission is free. Hours are 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. weekdays only.
