McPherson College students in art classes have been hard at work during the fall semester – leading to a February exhibition filling Friendship Hall from wall to wall with fantastic work.
The student exhibition includes 198 works, more than Wayne Conyers, professor of art, can recall ever hanging before.
“It’s amazing how things change over time. Ten years ago we had trouble gathering enough quality student work from both semesters to fill Friendship Hall — Not anymore,” Conyers said. “Watching students progress in their artistic development, regardless of their major, is very satisfying.”
Conyers said the exhibit demonstrates a wide range of media, artistic concepts based on creativity and students’ ability to change their thoughts into tangible work.
Among the work on display are graphic designs, photographs, paintings, ceramics and pencil drawings, with subjects ranging from a science fiction cityscape and an industrial-looking clock shaped like an eye to moody black and white photographs and colorful and surreal digital images.
The work is now on display, through Feb. 28. The public is invited to a reception for the student artists in the exhibition from 7 to 9 p.m. on Feb. 21.
