About the Exhibition

Linfield Gallery is pleased to present Peak / Peek / Pique, Linfield’s 2018 Student Exhibition, featuring work from Thesis, Portfolio and Electronic Arts Capstone students.

 Installed across two venues, this exhibition represents a series of small glimpses into the creative practice of Linfield’s student artists. The title of the exhibition exemplifies the different approaches and accomplishments of the artists shown.

Peak: First and foremost, this exhibition represents a culmination of academic achievement. Kellie Bowen, Taylor Dean and Tess Newberry are graduating seniors, with this exhibition serving as their Thesis presentation. For the remaining artists, this exhibition is an opportunity to show the results of a semester of working closely with instructors to produce a unified body of work.

Peek: Hung across two galleries, the works on view can be seen as a group of snapshots, showing where each artist Is at this point in their practice. Taken as a whole, the works on view reflect the broad range of subjects, mediums, and experiences of Linfield’s students.

Pique: Perhaps most importantly, this exhibition shows the passions and interests of the artists involved. Whether you are familiar with the students shown here, or if you are encountering their work for the first time, we hope that this presentation stimulates your curiosity to learn more.
