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

    Standing in the Belhurst Castle, a Great Gatsby-esque property situated on Seneca Lake in Geneva, N.Y., I realized it had been around a decade since my childhood friends and I had been in the same room together. And yet, here we were, drinks in hand, smiles plastered across our faces, as family members and dates for the wedding stood in front of us, eager to capture the moment we all were huddled as one.
