Fresh Starts features the work of students from the advanced painting class under the direction of Mark Perlman, Professor of Painting in the Art and Art History Department. One painting from each student was displayed along with an artist's statement and photograph, taken by Perlman, of each student in his or her studio. The subject matter from each artist is as unique as the themes they are exploring.
