Now on view at the Burrison Gallery in the University Club at the Inn at Penn are paintings by 30 students from the Penn School of Dental Medicine. They participated in a Penn selective Canvas Block—taught by dental medicine professor Tom Barber—which places the emphasis on painting, what you see, not what you imagine! The students created two paintings each using acrylic on canvas. They were taught brush technique, illusion of distance, outline strategy for difficult structures, layering of painting, diaphanous effect and mixing of colors. There are three subjects: White Rhino, Americas Cup—Newport Rhode Island, and Lake Erie, Chautauqua.
The exhibit will be at the Burrison Gallery until the fall.
