More Seniors Strut Their Stuff!
Senior Visual Arts Capstone Exhibition and Student Show
Thru Friday May 20
NHTI Library Gallery
An exhibit of works by NHTI's graduating Visual Arts Senior Majors, and other NHTI visual arts students.
Sculpture by Jonathan Clemens
"In an attempt to understand what is an accurate representation of 'self' and how it can be honestly expressed to others, I utilized several different mediums and techniques to sculpt a series of self-portrait busts."
Ceramics by Teresa Swindell
"I make pottery by throwing it on the wheel and altering it later. In doing so, I seek to allow hands wrapping around the subly altered form to feel as though it could have been created by the natural forces of wind and water, evoking memories of natural surfaces."
Drawings by Gabriella Morales
"My compositions explore the balance between
organic linear forms and geometric shapes."
"Ascension" by Holly MacDonald
"This abstract expressionist series utilizes action painting techniques ... I used pre-applied textures and forms in some pieces to enhance certain symbolic elements. Each piece was governed by its own unique set of colors that I preselected, but the application of the paint was intuitive and spontaneous, reacting to the present moment."
The Greatest Show on Screen!
The Animation and Graphic Game Programming (AGGP) department drew crowds to its annual Show of Games, which took up most of the afternoon of Friday May 6. The first hour was dedicated to the projects of first year students showcasing their work. The remaining time was given over to the more advanced individual and team projects of graduating seniors.
First year AGGP student Mert Ozkan from Turkey describes the development of his game,
Dark Crusader: First Impact.
Gunnar Nichols gave the sole senior presentation in NHTI's Mathematics department this spring. Gunnar undertook an independent study of differential equations, and gave a lecture on the subject for faculty and fellow students. His project required mastering specialized software, as well as comprehending highly complex subject matter.
Gunnar will be one of the first two graduates of NHTI's fledgling Associate Degree in Mathematics program this spring.
