NewsPress Release: 5/07/02 Marlboro College Siblings Present Dual Art Exhibit
MARLBORO, VT - Sister and brother Clara and Russ Wootton, both Marlboro College seniors, will be presenting exhibits of their artwork as part of their Plans of Concentration from May 9 to 16 in the college's Drury Gallery.
Clara will be presenting a collection of handmade books, some of which include her photography. Her exhibit will also include a series of color pinhole images based on simple elements of color line and shape.
Russ will be showing digital portraits in 3D, transferred to 35mm film, and printed as color photos.
The Plan of Concentration is the cornerstone of Marlboro's academic program. It is an in-depth, self-designed exploration of a field or fields of each student's choosing. The Plan culminates in a major independent project involving research, one-to-one study with faculty in tutorials and a three-hour oral examination with Marlboro faculty and an outside examiner who is an expert in the student's field.
Founded in 1946, Marlboro College offers undergraduate education in the liberal arts and, since 1997, graduate study focused in Internet technologies. Its 300 undergraduate students enjoy a 7:1 student-faculty ratio, a voice in governing the community, and individualized courses of study on a 350-acre campus in the hills of southern Vermont.
Gallery hours are from 1 to 5 p.m. The Drury Gallery is fully accessible, and admission is free. For more information, please call (802) 257-4333 or visit the college online at http://www.marlboro.edu.
