Lycoming College Art Gallery in downtown Williamsport will again open its doors to the community for the annual juried exhibition featuring the thesis works of Lycoming College graduating senior art students. The exhibition opens April 5, with an artist reception at 5:30 p.m. The exhibition will run through May 11. The exhibit is free and open to the public.

The Lycoming College Senior Show is the culmination of thesis projects for all seniors with a major in studio art. All studio art majors are required to produce a cohesive body of professional thesis work and must be chosen by an outside juror to exhibit in the Senior Show in order to graduate. The juror for this year’s thesis exhibition is Eva Frosch, co-owner of Frosch & Co. gallery in New York City. Frosch was previously tapped to serve as juror for the 2020 Senior Show, but was unable to fill the role when the nation went on lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Eva Frosch holds a master’s degree in art history from the University of Zürich, Switzerland. She moved to New York in 2004, where she was a fellow at the Museum of Modern Art, worked for the artist Peter Halley, and was the Gallery Director at Jack the Pelican Presents in Brooklyn. Frosch & Co. represents emerging and mid-career artists with an affinity toward witty intelligence.

The 2024 Senior Art Show features works and artist statements from the following graduating seniors:

  • Kya Carthen – painting and anthropology double major
  • Maria Johnson Davis – art generalist major, Spanish minor
  • Alexandra Dergarabedian – art history and art generalist double major
  • Jalen Johnson – painting major
  • Cesilio Coatl Miranda – graphic design major, graphic design and 3D animation minor
  • Richard Rheam – graphic design major, music minor
  • Cole Schaeffer – art generalist major, painting minor
  • Samantha Wood – photography major, criminal justice and criminology minor
  • Craig Zortman – art generalist major, painting minor

The Lycoming College Art Gallery, located in downtown Williamsport at 25 W. Fourth St., contributes to the city’s arts culture and allows the College to become more involved with the surrounding community. Lycoming art students have the opportunity to interact with visiting artists and learn first-hand the inner workings of an art gallery.

The gallery is open Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 4-8 p.m. For more information, visit the gallery online, or email Rose DiRocco-Hodges, art gallery director, with any questions.
