Manual Visual Art seniors Madi Gonsalves, Hang Nguyen, Kasey Scarbrough, Kyleen Johnson, Kendall Swann, Allison Paxton, Marissa Pantoja and Abby Stowers hosted their senior art show entitled “Apricity” last Wednesday, Dec. 10.
Apricity featured many medias of work done by each of the eight artists so far this year.
VA seniors will not set up another art show until after Christmas break, however, Apricity will be open to all students in the VA annex on the first floor until the next show comes.
The definition for “apricity” is the warmth of the sun in the winter. Gonsalves explains the reason for the group giving the show this title.
“We wanted a themed name, something along the lines of water,” Gonsalves said. “That was a middle ground for everyone in the group and we all agreed on it.”
Scarbrough revealed how she felt about the outcome of the show.
“I think it turned out well for the amount of time we had to pull it all together,” Scarbrough said. “Overall, seeing my art and my peers’ work in the show was a good feeling.”
Gonsalves also elaborated on how it felt to have her work on display for a large number of attendees.
“I got to experience my first gallery opening, a sneak peek of what it feels like to be a successful artist,” Gonsalves said. “I felt like I got closer to the art community in Louisville and I was able to say I contributed to something I never thought I was capable of.”
