The accomplishments of all Elmhurst College students enrolled in fall term art courses will be highlighted in the Fall Student Art Exhibition.

Displayed salon style and entirely filling the walls of the Founders Lounge in the Frick Center, the art demonstrates the full range of media produced by art students, including painting, drawing, photography, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics, graphic design and digital art.

"This show displays the big picture of what's up in the art department," said Suellen Rocca, Elmhurst College's curator and director of exhibitions. "Visitors will see everything from fundamental studies in painting and drawing to cutting-edge projects done by advanced students."

The show continues through Friday, Dec. 14, in the Founders Lounge of the Frick Center 190 Prospect Ave., Elmhurst.

The Fall Student Art Exhibition is one of roughly a dozen shows that Elmhurst College will present this academic year in three different campus venues.

The college also exhibits more than 100 works in its Student Art Collection, which features selected exemplary work purchased from graduating seniors. The collection is on permanent display on the third floor and lower level of the A.C. Buehler Library.

The library also is home to the college's collection of Chicago Imagist and Abstractionist Art, which explores the vibrant, often outrageous, yet precisely crafted works of Chicago artists between 1950 and the present. The collection is displayed throughout the library's first floor and lower vestibule.

The public exhibits are free. For details, contact Rocca at (630) 617-6110 or
