Convivium: MSU Art in Italy

The Helen E. Copeland Gallery invites everyone to attend the student exhibition Convivium, work by the MSU undergraduates who studied in Italy during the spring semester of 2009.  Thursday, November 19th from 7-9 p.m, there will be an opening reception and talk with retired director and professor of the School of Art, Richard Helzer. The opening reception with the artists is free and open to the public.

The exhibition, which runs from November 12th – November 20th showcases works by Montana State University students who spent Spring 2009 studying art and art history in Italy.  Instructed by MSU professors Regina Gee and Richard Helzer, the students traveled extensively throughout the country and spent several weeks working on drawing and ceramics while staying at an Umbrian villa. The students worked in a professional Italian ceramic studio with the intention of designing work for the dining room. Convivium, from the Latin banquet or feast, is an exhibition of the ceramic work as well as different drawing projects that the students worked on throughout their stay in Italy.

The Helen E. Copeland Gallery is located on the second floor of Haynes Hall on the MSU-Bozeman campus.  Haynes Hall is on 11th Avenue across from the duck pond.  For more information, please call Erin W. Anderson at 994-2562.
