Design Studies: Student Exhibition Showcase
Friday, December 4 – Tuesday, December 15, 2015
Gallery Open on Sundays: Noon – 4:00, Monday-Friday: 10:00-4:00
The Textile and Fashion Design Student Exhibition will open Friday December 4, with a reception from 5 – 7 p.m. Students of senior standing, and advanced students applying to spend their senior year at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, will use this exhibition to present their strongest works. Garments, woven, dyed and printed yardage, embellished textiles, and other three dimensional work, along with digital and printed portfolios will be displayed. This exhibition will celebrate the breadth and strength of creative exploration in the Textile and Fashion Design program and give students an opportunity to install their work in a professional gallery setting.
On view starting December 9, Interior Architecture Portfolio Showcase features the work of IA students who have completed the majority their studio courses. They will present design portfolios that showcase work from their academic careers, including designs for residential spaces as well as commercial spaces, such as offices and restaurants. IA portfolios feature computer-generated virtual representations of the students’ designs, as well as traditional hand illustrations, artwork, and graphics that explain their design process. Many of these students are ready to use these final portfolios as they interview for their first professional positions with design firms and design-related companies. An additional highlight will be multimedia clips and sensory elements that immerse viewers in each student’s restaurant design and concept. A reception for IA Showcase is set for Friday, December 11, 5-7 p.m.
