HIGH POINT, N.C., May 4, 2009 – Senior students in the Visual Art Department at High Point University presented their works of art on May 2 in the Deal Student Gallery of the Hayworth Fine Arts Center at High Point University.
Each senior was required to create a body of work in the medium of her choice. Many of the students have been working on these pieces for more than a year, with media including paint, clay and diverse materials such as bamboo and vellum.
“It’s a difficult thing to present your art to the public for the first time,” says Visual Art Department Chair Scott Raynor. “There is a mixture of anticipation and excitement in the air with the students as their senior seminar experience comes to an end. ? I think the High Point community will be pleasantly surprised with the breadth and depth of the pieces in the show.”
Seniors who participated were: Shana Alexander, Stephanie Dail, Brittany Demmler, Natasha Flores de Valgaz, Mallory Fritz and Lisa Hughes.
The show runs through May 10 in the Deal Student Gallery in the Hayworth Fine Arts Center. For more information, contact Scott Raynor at 336-841-4671. Entrance to the Deal Gallery is free of charge. The gallery is open to the public Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.
