The Rome Experience:

From photography to painted plates

By Elly Villescas
On October 5, 2011

For five weeks during the summer of 2011, a class full of Xavier students packed their suitcases and boarded a plane headed for the city of Rome.

During this "life changing" experience students were exposed

to ancient works of art, historical monuments and museums

in hopes that at the end of the trip they would be inspired

to create their own works of art.

Having spent nearly a month and a half in Rome, students were aware that they were going to be graded on the art they created

for the gallery.

For hours on end, students would spend time at a location

of their choice where they would create their art.

Whether it was a garden or museum where they spent their time, the artists retained inspiration

for the works of art that Xavier students are now able to see in the Xavier University gallery.

Beginning today and going through Nov. 6 the students' art will be on display in the Art Gallery on the First Floor of the A.B. Cohen Center.

Including photography, drawings, painted plates and even journals it is a free exhibit open to the public.

There will be a kick-off reception,

tonigh from 5-8 p.m. including refreshments and snacks.

Following the kickoff, the gallery will be open Monday - Friday 10-4 p.m.

Art is also available for purchase

from the artists.

While visiting the gallery, if interested, there is even art you are able to purchase from the artist themselves.

Although you may have not been the one to travel to Rome, this art gallery will take you there.

The following students' art will be displayed: Natalie Clark, Morgan Dorsey, Rebecca Lipps, Erin Rust and Tori Yontz, as well as Professor Suzanne Chouteau.

The exhibit Scream featuring

black and white woodcuts by Saad Ghosn will also be on display at the Xavier Art Gallery beginning today through Nov. 6.
