#6221|November 4, 2011
The Malone University College of Theology, Arts, and Sciences – Department of Visual Art will present senior portfolios throughout the remainder of the fall semester. The projects represent the culmination of the students' endeavors in the art department at Malone University, and will be exhibited in the McFadden Gallery located within the Johnson Center for Worship and the Fine Arts at 2600 Cleveland Avenue N.W. in Canton. All art galleries at Malone University are free and open to the public.
November 15-21: Angela Klusty, an art major from Hartville, will present work that is primarily photography and digital images inspired by nature. She also has completed some large digital pieces that read like signage one might find on billboards. These pieces encourage action and support for organizations such as Locks of Love. A closing reception is planned for November 20, from 5-7 p.m. in the Gallery and is free and open to the public.
November 30-December 6: McFadden Gallery will host the work of Danielle Wuensch, an art major from New London. This body of work is a culmination of her work in photography and graphic design. She has titled her exhibit "More than an image...perspective" and it invites the viewer to consider the work and determine one's own idea about the images she has included. A reception will be held in the gallery December 1 from 4-8 p.m.
December 10-15: Alysha Merlino, an art major from North Bloomfield, will display her paintings and photographs. Alysha starts with a photograph that captures a moment in time and then uses these as the basis for her paintings of the same imagery. She is looking to see how each media expresses the emotion of the scene and impacts the viewer's experience. A reception is planned for December 10 from 4-7 p.m. and is free and open to all.
