Six McPherson College senior art students are currently exhibiting their senior projects in Friendship Hall. A special reception honoring these students will take place Thursday evening from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in Friendship Hall. Artists will be available for comments and to answer questions about their work.
Professor of art, Wayne Conyers stated “Each student has developed his or her own style, and this is something we are very proud of. You can see the personality of the individual artist in each piece.”
Students participating in the exhibition have learned arrangement and presentation skills through this exhibition process. Specifically, they have gained experience in tagging, lighting, teamwork, and creating an artist statement.
The following students exhibiting their works are:
Courtney Castelli, Hutchinson, graphic design; Zach Dowling, Lakewood, Wash., acrylic on canvas; Brandon Maser, Great Bend, graphic design; Eli Neher, Overland Park, ceramics, pen drawings, and assemblages; Jordan Rothrock, McPherson, graphic design and photography; Julia Santillan, McPherson, ceramics, photography, and jewelry making.
In addition to the reception on Thursday evening, student art may be viewed in Friendship Hall, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. through the end of the month. Beginning in May, another group of senior art students will showcase their works in Friendship Hall with a reception in their honor to be announced. The public is invited to view both of these exhibitions during the above hours.
