HPU Professor Of Art Has Sculptures Featured In Juried Exhibition

Posted on September 17, 2009.

HIGH POINT, N.C., Sept. 17, 2009 – Andrea Wheless, professor of art at High Point University, is showing her artistic talents thanks to a juried exhibition at Elon University in the Isabella Cannon Room, Center for the Arts.
The exhibition, called the Tri State Sculptors Exhibit 2009, features the work of sculptors from North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia. It went on display Aug. 25 and will remain through Oct. 4.
“I have two pieces in the exhibit,” Wheless says. “They are both portrait heads. A portrait head is done from the model; it is a piece of a specific person, so it looks very much like the person who models.”
Both pieces were made from clay, then had a mold made. Wheless explains the mold was then cast into Hydrocal.
