Senior Art Showcase On Display At Lee

Friday, April 20, 2018

The Lee University Department of Communication Arts has installed the Senior Art Showcase for the spring 2018 semester. The artwork is on display in the Communications Arts Building and Squires Library on Lee’s campus through Friday, May 4. 

The exhibit showcases the work of seven art students who will graduate this May. Lindsay Loper and Josh Roden’s artwork is on display in the Communication Arts Building first floor. The works of Karissa Armao, Erin Olson, and Christina Wong are displayed in the Squires Library.

“All of my art is an attempt to reflect abundant life - the art of gratitude in wanting what we have,” said Ms. Loper. “I focused a lot on detail in this show because I think we so often pass by glorious things that we’d typically consider ordinary and those things matter.” 

Graphic design artwork is on display as well as traditional media, such as charcoal and painted pieces. Artist statements are posted with each collection, giving viewers a sense of the artist’s goal and vision. 

According to John Simmons, art discipline coordinator, this semester’s graduates in art “exemplify the talent of the students and the quality of Lee’s art program.” 

The Senior Showcase is free and open to the public for viewing during normal university hours.

Drink Up, Chattanooga

The best reason is because Bill Lee is real. His opponent, Karl Dean, is a Democrat and a longtime politician. Go ... (click for more)
