LEWISTON — Fourteen studio art majors, including two area students, are showing pieces from their yearlong thesis projects through May 30 in the annual Senior Exhibition at the Bates College Museum of Art.
Showing their works are Elizabeth Mitchell of Auburn and Tyler Schoen of Wilton.
Through making books, Mitchell seeks to explore the idea of home.
“Books are tangible and tactile; books can be picked up, moved through,
understood as parts, moments or as a whole,” she said. “They are
places, units, enclosures and homes for information, stories, pictures
and secrets.”
In his digital photographs, Schoen juxtaposes eggs with other items.
“The inherent cultural symbolism of the egg and the juxtaposition of
items that heighten this meaning are of interest to me, providing a
subject through which various ideas can be conveyed,” he said.
Open to the public at no cost, the museum’s regular hours are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
