Fall Senior Exhibition opens December 4

The York College Galleries currently have three physical exhibitions on display, one on campus that is open to the YCP community, and two at Marketview Arts in downtown York that are open to the public. Additional information about those exhibitions is below. We have a fourth exhibition opening soon; an online exhibition of senior thesis work by our graduating seniors Jeannine Dabb (Fine Art), Britney Dix, Cali Hager, Julia Richter, and Kayleigh Schrader (all Graphic Design.) When the senior exhibition, titled “Under the Eye”, opens it will be housed on this blog but the rest of the blog will go dark for design adjustments. We just wanted to give you a heads up.

Look for more announcements on Facebook and Instagram about our upcoming virtual senior show. And int the meantime, enjoy our exhibitions on campus (if you’re part of the YCP community) or downtown at Marketview Arts (open to the public.) Here are the details:

Social history meets great graphic design. This collection of iconic posters captures the turbulence of the late 1960s and early 1970s, revealing a complicated range of youthful optimism and discontent from exuberant psychedelic concert posters to works challenging oppressive social structures and the Vietnam War.

This exhibition, curated by Susanne Slavick, pairs work by contemporary artists with texts exploring how the reality or representation of trees can offer solace and space, for the necessity of talking and listening, in the face of ongoing human conflict and impending climate catastrophe.

This year’s YCASE Juror is Baltimore-based artist Jessi Hardesty, the Director of Visual Art and Curator at Carroll Community College. An anxious mark maker, she channels her need to liaise with the forgotten, the secret, and the macabre through the ritual labor of woodcut.
