Senior Art Show Runs through April 11 at William Woods

“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.”  These words from Pablo Picasso embody the theme of William Woods University’s 2014 senior art show.

Titled “Evolution of an Artist,” the exhibit is set to open March 14 and run through April 11. Ten seniors have been planning and preparing all semester for their final art exhibition before graduation in May.

A reception will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday (March 14) in the Mildred Cox Gallery of the Gladys Woods Kemper Center for the Arts.

Featured artists, earning their degrees in either graphic design, studio art or art education, are: Adelle DuSold, Meghan Greenwalt, Haley Hinze, Jamie Lanagan, Ashley McCaffrey, Valerie Mielziner, Jennifer Schweiss, Collin Shaw, Kyle Stephan and William J. Terrell

The students have compiled some of their best work from their years at William Woods, ranging from studio to graphic design to photography.  They have also prepared senior pieces that reflect themselves and what they have learned throughout their college careers.

The Mildred Cox Gallery is open 9 a.m. to 6.p.m. Monday-Friday and 1 to 4.p.m. Saturday-Sunday. For more information, contact Jennifer Sain, gallery coordinator, at Jennifer.sain@williamwoods.edu or (573) 592-4245.
