On April 28, the Westfield State Art department held their annual student art show in the Arno Maris Gallery located on the second floor of the Ely Campus Center. Students of all years showcased their artwork amid the pleasant backdrop of music and refreshments. 

The gallery was filled to capacity with family, friends, and members of the Westfield State community who all came to show their support for the students’ hard work and dedication to their artwork. 

About halfway through the showing, awards were given out for students placing first, second, and third in different categories including painting, pottery, and drawing. 

Students were also inducted into the Kappa Pi International Art Honor Society. To be inducted, students must maintain an impressive GPA and demonstrate a high level of skill with their artwork. 

Christian Capalbo, a sophomore geography and regional planning and fine arts major, won first in the paintings category for his two pieces of art work. 

His passion and dedication are evident in his artwork, which is displayed in the Ely art gallery. Capalbo is an active member of the Westfield State community, participating in the Mr. Westfield Pageant, SGA, and Track and Field. 

“I was a little bit intimidated by some of the pieces displayed, especially in the drawing category,” Capalbo stated in regards to the other art showcased. 

Each piece displayed the upmost level of skill and dedication. 

“There is an over abundance of talent and it is keeping the art department going and moving forward,” said Capalbo. 

The Anro Maris Gallery is open Tuesday and Thursday from 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m., Wednesday and Friday from 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m., and Saturday from 11:00am and 3:00pm.
