INDY 500… and beyond! Phillips Exeter Academy Student Art Show May 5 – June 4, 2017 Reception: Thursday, May 25, 5-7:30pm Investigation, research, and drive: INDY 500 is the result of a period of highly focused artmaking where PEA students in ART 500 and ART 999 conduct an in-depth exploration of art materials and themes. This exhibition will include a wide variety of work, from intricate ceramic sculptures and large-scale paintings to whimsical fashion designs and stop-motion animations. PEA art instructors, who have followed the same guidelines as the students in these advanced courses, will also have work on view. Through experimentation, critique, research, visiting artists, and deep time in the art studio, INDY 500 showcases the dynamic results of an immersive creative process.
