The art department at Arkansas Tech University is proud to announce the 2013 Senior Fine Art Exhibition, featuring the works of 10 graduating seniors. The public is invited to attend an opening reception to meet the artists on Sat., March 30, 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. with entertainment provided by Brandon Riley.
The show is a long-standing tradition of the art department as seniors, preparing to pursue their studies in graduate school or to pursue careers as professional artists, showcase what they have learned during their undergraduate studies.
Participating seniors are Brian Shipman of Mountain View, Stephanie Stauffer of Vilonia, Dale Shanek of Hot Springs, DJ Comet of Benton, Amber Naylor of Beebe and Caroline Beech, Miranda Skelton, Tiffany Pritchett, Jessica Simpson and Jeannie Stone, from Russellville.
The artists choose individual themes to represent their art works. This year’s themes are eliminating world hunger, ending violence, the objectification of women, art as interior decor, touching temptation, animals from reality to impressionism, superheroes, and a collection of colorful figures rendered with unique perspectives.
The 2013 Senior Fine Art Exhibition will be on display from March 30 through April 12 at Norman Art Gallery located on the Tech campus. For more information, call (479) 968-0244.
