In addition, Design capstone projects are up at the Kirksville Arts Association (1902 S. Baltimore, Suite 100) this week. The reception to celebrate their completion of the degree will be at 6 pm Friday evening at that location. We look forward to seeing you at one or all of the events coming up this week.
Students completing their degrees with the BA: Liberal Arts major took over the University Gallery last week to show their work in their capstone classes. The students whose art was featured were Olivia Brady (printmaking), Akari Kinjo (fibers/sculpture), Sabrina Lavezzi (printmaking), Hannah Nicks (ceramics), Morgan Price (ceramics), and Allyson Uhles (ceramics). The reception to celebrate their exhibition was held on the Friday of their week in the gallery. These pictures show some of the work and visitors enjoying the shows.
