Student Art Exhibit (2024)

February 2 – March 29, 2024

This campus exhibit features artworks by independent students as well as students who were enrolled in three Penn State Wilkes-Barre courses.

Students in Art History: Renaissance to Modern Art (ARTH 112), taught by Jonathan Pineno, studied various types of modern art and painting techniques. The class discussed environmental art and how to utilize recycled materials to create art. With recycled hubcaps, plastic caps in a variety of sizes from all types of bottles, recycled cardboard, paint, and glue, class members created their own unique “CAPS” — Creative Art Project for Students.

Students in Perceiving the Arts (INART 001), taught by Jonathan Pineno, studied various artworks and painting techniques. For this class project, students incorporated techniques from a painting by well-known professional artist Bob Ross entitled “Winter Frost.” The class members created their interpretations of the painting while following the painting instructions provided by the artist.

Students in The Gothic Short Story (English 184), taught by Christyne Berzsenyi, explored American gothic short fiction, television and film adaptations as well as gothic style and themes; researched Pennsylvania locations of gothic landmarks; and dabbled in the making of original gothic-inspired art related to the course topics and discussions.
