Artists reception

April 9, 2013 by Jennifer Retter

Event Date: 
Mon, 04/15/2013 - 6:00pm - 7:00pm

A reception for the artists featured in the Weatherford College Student Art Exhibition will be held from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Monday, April 15, in the Marjorie Black Alkek Center. The public is invited to meet the artists while enjoying light refreshments and works on display.

Works cover a wide range of subject matter and techniques, featuring a variety of media, including ebony, charcoal, scratchboard, acrylic, oil, watercolor, colored pencil, clay, copper, plaster and mixed media. Some artwork will be offered for sale.

WC art students come from a wide variety of backgrounds, ages, cultures and hometowns. Students come from as far away as Germany and as near as Weatherford and span a wide range in ages.

“Always, the reception is a highlight for these artists as they have the opportunity to share their art with the public,” said Myrlan Coleman, art instructor. “This is an exceptional group of students who has produced unique and exciting works. Each student seems to work in his or her own individual style and technique and yet they all seem to be excited about learning to try new things and are looking forward to having the opportunity to exhibit their talents and skills.”

The exhibition will be open through April 19. For more information, contact Coleman at mcoleman@wc.edu.
