MSU BILLINGS NEWS SERVICES — Montana State University Billings art student Anastasia Swarthout's senior capstone exhibition, titled Progression, is on display in the Student Gallery with an opening reception on Thursday, April 3, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. The reception is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.


The body of work employs photography and clay to explore the struggles and anxieties humans encounter. In the hope to transform anxiety into something emotionally constructive, her mediums form into a conceptual purging, the artist says.


The MSU Billings Art Department will present Swarthout's capstone in the Student Gallery on the first floor of the Liberal Arts building on the university’s four-year campus through April 11. The gallery is open during regular semester hours, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
