Senior Studios: a home of their own

This is the third in our series of looks into the Senior Studios of our Class of 2016 Fine Art students.  Samantha Sanders, Megan Wirick and Jen Godfrey give us a peek behind the scenes as they are immersed in the creation of their senior theses. Every senior has his or her own studio space at PCA&D in which they create his or her thesis, the colmination of their BFA degree, which will be exhibited during the Senior Show and Celebration, Friday May 6, 5-8 p.m.

Samantha Sanders also shared her artist statement: My thesis artwork represents my history and identity. With the use of oil paint I create large and small works on canvas that illustrate my home, both inside and out. By choosing specific domestic settings, plants and objects I invite the viewer into the scene to become apart of the life I am attempting to preserve.
