Four WWU alumni to exhibit art work

Alumni of William Woods University will exhibit their art
work in the university’s first alumni show, opening April 19 in conjunction
with Alumni Weekend. A dessert and champagne punch reception is scheduled for
1:30-2:30 p.m. Saturday April 20. The show will run until May 17.
 
Artists involved are Patricia A. Behler ’46, Cindy Logan ’74,
Paula Kientzel ’00 and Bradley Prasuhn ’09.  Kientzel’s graduating class
was the first to have a senior show in the Gladys Woods Kemper Center for the
Arts, which opened in 1999.
 
“This is our very first official alumni show, which I plan to
make an annual event,” Jen Sain, coordinator of the Mildred Cox Gallery, said.
 “This show is a collaboration of professional and non-professional
artists, sort of a sampling of the quality of work we should expect for future
exhibits.”
 
She added, “Shows will vary from year to year, featuring solo
professional artists to multiple artists.  I plan to exhibit this way to
accommodate exhibitor’s/alums needs.  For instance, some alums may be
considered professional practicing artists, with a large body of work, while
others may practice fine art and have 10 to 20 pieces, but not enough to fill
the gallery. Either way, I think the show will highlight specific talents
of our alums.”

Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday-Friday and 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday-Sunday when William Woods is in session.  All exhibits are free and open to the public.
