Northwest sophomore art majors work to be exhibited

artThe April art exhibit at Northwest Mississippi Community College will feature the work of sophomore art majors, according to Lawayne House, Northwest art chair. The work will be on display at the Northwest Art Gallery, located on the Senatobia campus, from April 14- 18, with a reception on Thursday, April 15 from 5-7 p.m.

The exhibit will feature work by sophomores Elizabeth Buster of Senatobia, Kayla Frazier of Olive Branch, Octavia Robinson of Mayersville, Courtney Hoyle of Ashland, Hannah Gurley of Batesville, Abigail Wells of Coldwater, Jeremy Clark of Olive Branch, Amber Banks of Southaven and Tara Thornton of Lake Cormorant.

“Each year the art faculty always looks forward to reviewing the art works created by our graduating sophomores prior to hanging their sophomore exhibition. Though we regret not being able to see their continued growth over another two years, it pleases us to know that we’ve provided the fundamental tools that they will carry with them as they enter into upper level art courses. This culmination of works is one that Northwest and the community always enjoys,” House said.

Gallery hours are 8 a.m.- 3:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m. – noon, Fridays.  Admission to the gallery is free.
