We are happy to begin our spring student artist exhibitions with a solo show of work by Nissley Award winner, Stephanie Lifshutz ’13. Stephanie’s independent study concerns photojournalism as a fine art. Her studies include photos from Central Park, Brooklyn Bridge Park and Coney Island, all places with which she is familiar and has personal connection to. She alters her photographs through the process of silkscreen, producing works of art that reveal her technical skill in the paintstaking process, while conveying her sensitivity and the integrity of her subjects. The exhibition runs from April 2 through April 21. You are invited to attend the reception to be held in her honor on Friday, April 5 at 4:45 p.m. in the Dana Gallery.
