The public is invited to the Weatherford College student art reception from 6 to 7 p.m. Monday, April 8, in Texas Hall of the Alkek Fine Arts Center.

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.

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.

“We have a wonderful diversity in our students including a wide range of ages, cultural back-
grounds, and varying countries of origin,” said Myrlan Coleman, WC Visual Arts Director. “This provides us with the opportunity to broaden our visions and learn from others.”

Coleman began featuring her students’ work in exhibitions at WC in 1969 and has done so each semester since. This show marks her 99th WC student art show.

The exhibition officially opened April 5 and will be on display through April 30, but the reception will highlight the event with students having the oppor-
tunity to meet with the public.

“Both painting instructor Avery Kelly and I are excited about this 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.”
