Last summer, Mary Del Popolo and Peggy Feerick, professors in the School of Art, traveled with 12 students to Seravezza, Italy, for three weeks of art instruction and immersion in Italian art and culture.

In a semi-open-air studio on a Tuscan mountainside retreat known as Montorno, students produced both individual and collaborative projects responding to the captivating light and color of the landscape of the Italian countryside and the richness of Tuscany’s history.

The work exhibited in the Mason Hall Alumni Atrium Gallery represents art created as the students’ final projects that defines “A Sense of Place.”

The exhibit is ongoing through May 6. An opening reception will be held in the gallery on Tuesday, April 12, from 5 to 7 p.m.

All are welcome.
