BOILING SPRINGS, N.C.—Gardner-Webb University’s School of Performing and Visual Arts is pleased to present the 2012 Undergraduate Art Show, which begins with an opening reception on Thursday, Feb. 16 and runs until March 8 in the Communication Studies Hall. The exhibit is free and open to the community.

The exhibit will feature a variety of forms and styles including abstract collages, African style masks, self-portraits in oil, watercolor landscapes and florals, charcoal and graphite still-life paintings, figurative works, sculptures, pottery, and more.

According to Susan Bell, professor of art, “the Undergraduate Art Show is getting stronger as our students continue to grow in number and quality.  The show is exciting as it highlights the different media being taught and exhibits work for all levels of students.

Senior art major Emily Burgess says the undergraduate art show is a wonderful time for students and the community to “see all of the talent that the students at GWU possess. It is so much more than just a show; it’s a way to experience the world and ideas through the expressions of others. Anyone remotely interested in art should come out and support the program and the hard work of the students.”

Auxiliary aids will be made available to persons with disabilities upon request ten working days prior to the event.  Please call 704-406-3549 to make a request.
