BOILING SPRINGS, N.C. – The Gardner-Webb University School of Performing and Visual Arts presents the Annual Undergraduate Exhibit showing in the Communication Studies Hall Gallery from Thursday, Feb. 6 through Friday, Feb. 28. An opening reception featuring refreshments is planned for Thursday, Feb. 6 from 4 to 6 p.m. in the Communication Study Hall Gallery.  The exhibit is free and open to the public.

The exhibit consists of work from undergraduate students who have taken an art studio class such as drawing I, painting, I, ceramics I, and printmaking.  The pieces exhibited were not just limited to art majors or minors and provides a wide variety of work.  This is the department’s largest exhibit of the year.

“The viewer will see works in classical graphite and charcoal still life compositions,  observational drawings of the figure, ceramics, mixed media 3D sculptures, graphic designs and experimental paintings. A number of the works are based on the artists’ interpretations of particular emotions,” said Susan Bell, associate professor of fine arts. “The exhibit also demonstrates the depth and breath of the studio classes and is an invitation to the university to join the art department in appreciating and creating new works.”
