The public is invited to attend the fall semester student art show in Texas Hall of the Alkek Fine Arts Center from 6 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 12. This is the 100th art reception hosted by WC visual arts director Myrlan Coleman.
Attendees will have time to view works, meet the artists and enjoy a performance by WC’s master pianist Dr. Hyeyoung Song.
Featured works come from a variety of media including ebony, charcoal, scratchboard, acrylic, oil, watercolor, colored pencil, clay, copper, and mixed media and will include paintings, drawings, sculpture and thrown and hand-constructed pots. Art work will be offered for exhibition and for sale.
The exhibition officially opened on Nov. 8 and will remain on display though Thanksgiving. Several of the pieces are part of a contest in which the winner’s art will be chosen for display in the Alkek Fine Arts Center.
“Both Avery Kelly and I are excited about exceptional group of students who have produced unique and exciting works,” Coleman said. “Each student seems to work in their own individual style and technique and yet they all appear to be excited about learning to try new things. They are looking forward to having the opportunity to exhibit their talents and skills. This is one of the best groups of students we have had. We look for great things for their futures.”
WC art students come from a wide variety of backgrounds, ages, cultures, and hometowns. Students range from those who intend to pursue art as a career to those who are taking art for cultural enrichment.
“The classes have a wonderful diversity in our students and this provides students and faculty with opportunities to broaden our visions and learn from others,” Coleman said.
