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.
