Exhibit of student art to run Oct. 7-24 at WCU

Written by 

Students of the fine arts at Western Carolina University will show work from their senior portfolios from Thursday, Oct. 7, through Sunday, Oct. 24, in the Fine Art Museum in the Fine and Performing Arts Center.

Admission to WCU’s Fine Art Museum is free and the public is invited.

Titled “The New Sugar,” the exhibition will include a mix of ceramics, drawing, painting, printmaking and sculpture by 12 students who are part of a class taught by Marya Roland, associate professor of art, that prepares students for entry into the professional art world.

Participating students are Christine Cady, sculpture; Michael Dodson, sculpture; Lisa Erato, painting; Allyson Greer, printmaking; Rachael Griffin, painting; Lauren Hill, printmaking; Alexandra Kirtley, printmaking; Sarah Lovell, painting; Michelle McAfee, sculpture; Constance McCormick, ceramics; Janine Paris, drawing; and Trace Pierce, ceramics.

The show is the first of a two-part exhibition featuring these seniors. The second, “Oh Sweet Pestilence,” will open Monday, Nov. 29.

The Oct. 24 closing date of the first student exhibit coincides with the opening reception for WCU’s yearlong outdoor sculpture exhibit and “Seeing Rural Appalachia,” photographs by Mike Smith. That event, from 2 to 4 p.m., also is free and the public is invited.

The Fine Art Museum’s hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday. The museum also is open one hour before Fine and Performing Arts Center Galaxy of Stars performances and selected Saturday “Family Art Days.”

This Must Be the Place

  • This must be the place

    art theplaceIt’s not only a time capsule, but also a window into the future.

    With guitars in-hand, The DuPont Brothers are two men, two voices that become a singular melodic force. The Vermont-based siblings are quite possibly the finest acoustic duo out there today, nationally or internationally. Their mesmerizing sound and pure intent perpetuates a long line of powerhouse harmonic acts, bringing names like Simon & Garfunkel and Seals & Crofts to mind.
