In addition to the exhibition at High Line, selections from the students’ bodies of work will be shown in the Bogigian Gallery at Wilson College, 1015 Philadelphia Ave., Chambersburg from April 28 to May 15. A reception for the artists will be held from 5-6:30 p.m. Thursday, April 28, in the gallery.

Ankro is majoring in studio art with an interest in animation. For her capstone project, she created "Balloons," an animated short story of a robot’s distracted journey home after retrieving a bundle of balloons. Originally conceived as a traditional, hand-drawn, animated short, "Balloons" was converted to computer-generated animation through the use of state-of-the-art software.

Strayer is a graphic media major and a photographer. Her area of concentration combines graphic design with mass communications. Her capstone project is a carefully developed, web-based portfolio constructed by hand, which incorporates her knowledge of HTML5, CSS3 and Adobe Dreamweaver software. Her intention is to make her portfolio accessible to potential clients with the hope that her style, intuition and training will fit their needs.

Sutton is majoring in studio art with a concentration in painting. Her series of paintings explores moments - obvious or not - where bonds are strengthened and happy memories are made. Her hope is to show that quality of life can be improved if the positive aspects of a relationship are given time to grow and mature.

All three students will present their scholarship in brief talks during Wilson’s annual Student Research Day on Friday, April 29.

The Bogigian Gallery is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Admission is free. For additional information or an appointment, contact Professor of Fine Arts Philip Lindsey at 717-264-4141, Ext. 3305, or
