Every academic year four senior major or minor graduates are chosen to remain at Dartmouth for a post-graduate year as Studio Art Interns. Majors have priority, should candidates have equal qualifications. Each is provided with a studio and small annual stipend. In return they assist in classes, work in the gallery and monitor shops, also serving as role models and mentors for undergraduates. The presence of the interns working at an advanced level helps raise the quality of undergraduate work, and interns gain experience that helps prepare them for graduate school.
This year’s Studio Art Interns are Bogyi Banovich '11, Malia Reeves '12, Stuart Lantry '12 and Stacey Derosier '12. Below you’ll find information about each of them. If you’d like to ask them any questions about the Internship or Major/Minor please do not hesitate to reach out to them.
Bogyi Banovich was born and raised in New York City. He graduated from Dartmouth in 2012 a major in Studio Art, concentrating in sculpture, with a minor in Earth Sciences. Bogyi's work is constantly evolving, but his recent work concentrates on the forms and ideas of the future in regards to the evolution of life and the planet. He has a fond interest in surrealist art and tries to work his sense of humor into most of his work as well. He looks forward to developing his skills over this coming year as an intern and further exploring the materials he loves to work with: steel, plastic stretch wrap, and silicon. Bogyi plans on pursuing his artistic practice as a career, maybe teaching as well, and will probably end up moving back to the concrete jungle that is NYC, his home.
Malia Reeves grew up in the beautiful artist colony of Taos, New Mexico. She graduated from Dartmouth in 2012 with a focus in Painting and Drawing and a double minor in Art History and Spanish. For her Honors Thesis, Malia made paintings that explored the phrensied energy of reflections and water, acrid vibrancy and staring eyes. They were about tears and womanhood and about a place where dreams and reality meet. Malia is excited to continue her career in art this year and into the future. She would like to someday pursue an MFA and eventually teach art and outdoor education in a lovely mountain town. www.maliareeves.com
Stuart Lantry was born in the San Fransisco area, but grew up in the suburbs of Los Angeles. He graduated Dartmouth in 2012 with a major in Studio Art, with a focus in painting, while also achieving a minor in German. Stuart's artwork has continuously evolved to reach its current state, where the artist depicts urban walls and textures connecting graffiti, street art and their surfaces to previous art historical movements. Among these artists, Stuart is particularly inspired by the work of Jean-Michelle Basquiat and Robert Rauschenberg. Stuart hopes to use the next year to develop his work, further incorporate 3 dimensions and begin the daunting life of an artist. Ultimately, Stuart plans on moving to NYC in the hopes of immersing himself in his urban subject matter and hopefully supporting himself as an artist.
Stacey Derosier was born in Connecticut and grew up in Queens and Long Island, NY. She graduated from Dartmouth in the year 2012 where she studied as a major in Studio Art with a Film and Media Studies minor. While her work continues to develop, her pieces tend to focus on interactions between expressive, organic forms and absolute, geometric shapes to create provocative compositions. Stacey plans to spend the next year making work in the hopes of understanding her gravitation to these shapes and forms.
