In a warm atmosphere of creativity, curiosity, constructive criticism, and reflection, shared by students and faculty of all ages and nationalities, John Cabot University held its Fall 2011 End-of-Semester Student Art Exhibit on December 1st.

A wonderful turnout of students and friends gathered at the Largo dei Fiorentini Art Studio, for an exhibit which truly reflects the core of the John Cabot experience. This art show is a way for students to share their work with each other and with the JCU community. It is a presentation and a celebration of Studio Art students’ work, and has been held every semester since 1999.

The Studio Art department now has close to 200 students, who study digital and film photography, graphic design, drawing, fresco painting, and oil painting. The Studio Art program’s goal is to represent both the latest technologies and traditional techniques of art-making, and to encourage collaboration between them.

The Fall 2011 semester has seen the program benefit from the new Fiorentini Art Studio, where this multi-media collaboration has come to fruition. Painting students are using the Mac lab for research and layout, digital photo students are documenting the drawing class, and film photography students are scanning negatives.
