On display in the Connie A. Eastburn Gallery:

Senior Art Exhibition
By Jenna Ricchini and Ben Wilson


November 6 – December 11
Gallery Hours:
8:30 am–4:30 pm

This fall the Visual Arts Department is exhibiting the work of senior artists Jenna Ricchini and Ben Wilson in Cairn University’s Connie A. Eastburn Gallery. Their opening reception will be on November 13 at 6pm.

Jenna Ricchini (BA Graphic Design) showed interest in art at a very young age and was mostly self-taught until attending college. She states “I never truly thought I would pursue art as a career until God made that blatantly obvious through certain life events. Regardless, I have grown in many ways, as have my artistic skills, though I acknowledge I have much to learn.” He main passions are graphic design and its many forms, printmaking, and photography. She hopes to one day use these skills to design merchandise, album covers, and t-shirts for musicians and bands.

Ben Wilson (BFA General Fine Arts) is from the greater Philadelphia area. Before attending Cairn University, he studied painting at the Fleischer Art Memorial in Philadelphia. His interests lie in painting, working in a more realistic manner as well as experimenting with abstraction and more mechanical art styles, such as printmaking. He is fascinated with the intersection of religious, contemporary, and art philosophies.

Watch a livestream of the opening reception on Friday, November 13 at 6pm.

In addition to sponsoring an integrated art gallery that exhibits fine art in every major building on campus, the Arts Initiative also hosts visiting artist presentations, supports the Student Visual Arts Society and academic arts courses and programs at Cairn.
