All BFSDoArt students pursuing a major in studio arts are required to take foundation courses that include drawing, two-dimensional design, and three-dimensional design. The coursework that comprises the foundations program is extremely rigorous and helps to create the solid infrastructure needed for a career in the fine arts. The mission of the exhibition is to honor the efforts of the outstanding beginning art students, as well as to demonstrate to the expectations placed on future students at BFSDoArt. “This exhibition is a wonderful opportunity for Foundation-level students to highlight their work, as well as gain professional experience by displaying their work in formal exhibition setting.” said Jessica Burke, Foundations Director and Assistant Professor.

The juror for the exhibition was Scott Raynor, Chair and Associate Professor at High Point University in North Carolina. Raynor holds a MFA in Painting/Printmaking from the University of North Carolina-Greensboro. His work has been shown at venues such as the San Diego Museum of Art, Maryland Federation for the Arts, and the Greenhill Center for Contemporary Art. In addition, he have been an Artist-in-Residence at the Vermont Studio Center and the Scuola Grafica Internazionale di Venezia, Italy. Raynor is an active member of FATE (Foundations in Art: Theory and Education) and continues to teach foundation level courses.
