LATROBE, PA – The Verostko Center for the Arts is proud to present the work of seven graduating Saint Vincent College seniors with an opening reception the evening of Thursday, March 31, from 6:00–8:00 p.m. The exhibition features the work of two art education majors, Alexis Chittum (Audubon, New Jersey) and Lauren Hartner (North Huntingdon), and five studio art majors, Andrew Deaton (Tampa, Florida), Robert Kollar (Latrobe), Maddy Montefour (Mechanicsburg), Clair Sirofchuck (Ligonier), and Matis Stephens (Greensburg).
“Working across media, this cohort of seniors offers us a meaningful glimpse into the concerns of young artists coming of age during a pandemic. Through their bodies of work, the students explore the complexities of human emotion, identity, as well as the hopes and anxieties of what lies ahead,” said Andrew Julo, director of the Verostko Center for the Arts.

During the Spring 2022 semester, the Center is open Wednesdays from 1:00–4:00 p.m., Thursdays from 1:00–7:00 p.m. and Fridays from 1:00–4:00 p.m. To make an appointment outside the Center's normal hours, visitors should email email@example.com.
