The University of Toledo Department of Art Students to Exhibit at Annual ‘Tis the Secor Holiday Exhibition – December 12

More than 20 advanced students from the University of Toledo’s Concepts in Art, Studio and Theory course will exhibit their work at the annual holiday exhibition – ‘Tis the Secor, Saturday, December 12. The event features work from the community of artists who maintain studio space inside the historic Secor building as well as 30+ vendors offering handmade goods and crafts for holiday shopping at the Market Place area. Live music will fill the air as local bands perform throughout the night. Admission is free.

The students’ unique and personal practices explored current and complex issues through a diversity of works ranging from sculpture, photography, design, and ceramics. Spanning the mystical, ideological and political, the exhibition is the culmination of each student’s investigation into both the practice and theory of their chosen subject.

The Concepts in Art, Studio and Theory (C.A.S.T.) course prepares studio art majors for their Bachelor of Arts degree through an exploration of what it means to construct a creative and meaningful life as an individual focused on the arts. The course provides an experiential and creative forum that is bound by theories and practices of contemporary art, inspired by visiting artists, and embedded in the Toledo art community. It is in this context that emerging artists hone previously acquired skills and knowled
ge to create self-directed works of art based on concepts, research, and class critiques. These works of art are at the center of this exhibition.

Saturday, December 12th / 5pm – 11pm [one night only]
