All-female group to host art show
For the first time in more than 10 years, an all-female group of students will host the Eclectic 2010 Student Portfolio Art show.
Talisa Davis, Samantha Hayes, Tara Samuels, Betty Schwartz, Sara Smith, and Tina White are all graduating visual arts students, said visual art Professor Mary Ann Moore.
The exhibit will be 6 to 8 p.m., Dec. 3 to 16 in the OCCC Visual and Performing Arts Center gallery, Moore said.
The opening reception is Dec. 3, with free refreshments. All of the shows are free.
“[It’s] a senior thesis for artists,” said visual art major Schwartz, “a chance to start showing our art to the world.”
Moore said the women will showcase eclectic works of arts including drawings, paintings, pottery, mosaics, and pottery.
“The exhibit will give the students a chance to display their final work, before leaving OCCC,” Moore said.
She said students are not just showcasing their work. Some of the art will be for sale.
Moore said the group decided on the name Eclectic for this year’s exhibit because they are all offering a diverse variety of art.
