Allegheny Senior Art Projects to Be Presented

The Allegheny College Art Galleries will display the work of graduating seniors as well as art majors and minors from the Advanced Studio Projects seminar course in Doane Hall from Dec. 5-15, with the opening ceremonies on Tuesday, Dec. 5, starting at 7 p.m.

Elijah Prince is this semester’s sole graduating Studio Art Major, and his specialty is portraits in a variety of drawing styles.

Lauren Erdman and Alyssa Lisle integrate their research interests in psychology with their work: Lisle challenges preconceptions of beauty with ceramic sculpture, and Erdman’s installation uses fabric and patterning as analogies to the organization of biological structures.

Other student artists’ work to be displayed include Shelby Piper, Sarah Sherwood, Caleb Enis, Marilyn Boatwright, Morgan Davison, Lucas Thomas, Sandra Munguia, Karla Atcheson, Sarah Cole, and Cali Banks.

The reception and the exhibit are free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday 12:30 to 4 p.m.; Saturday, 1:30 to 5 p.m.; and Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m. The galleries are closed on Mondays.

The Art Galleries, which are wheelchair accessible, are located in Doane Hall of Art, east of North Main Street between College and John streets in Meadville. For more information, call (814) 332-4365.
