(July 2, 2013) The McNeese Department of Visual Arts will host the Foundation Design Juried Exhibition July 8-Aug. 30 in the Abercrombie Gallery of the Shearman Fine Arts Center at McNeese State University.
A public reception will be held from 2-4 p.m. Thursday, July 11.
The exhibition will feature student work from Basic Design and Art and the Computer classes, which are foundation courses taught in the department of visual arts.
"Foundation courses focus on the basic elements and principles of art," said exhibition co-coordinator Lisa Reinauer, professor of art. "While these freshman level courses are highly structured, students often develop images that stand on their own as strong works of art."
"We see this exhibit as an opportunity to showcase the talent of these emerging artists," added Meghan Fleming, associate professor of art and exhibition co-coordinator.
Featured students are: Dalton Barron, Longville; Amelia Caston, Lake Charles; Katie Daniels, Sulphur; Christian Duhon, DeRidder; Tiffany Fontenot, Lake Charles; Hao Ho, Kinder; Alex Hoffpauir, Bell City; Nicole Hudson, Lake Charles; Seho Kim, Korea; Joshua Kimball, Wildwood, Mo.; Sadie Lambert, DeRidder; Alex Landry, Lake Charles; Randi Landry, Lake Charles; Kelsey Leidig, DeRidder; Talia McCray, Baton Rouge; Tara Lynn Matt, Lake Charles; Brittany Morgan, Sulphur; Hunter Puckett, Orange, Texas; Kathryn Reeser, Westlake; Rosy Singh, Nepal; Anna Sprigg, Sulphur; Jessica Taylor, Westlake; Raylan Thierry, Lake Charles; Natalie Trahan, Jennings; and Shannon Villanueva, DeRidder.
