Seniors display work in art showBy Lesley Covington

April 12 is the last day to see the Senior Art Show in Locklear Hall before the works are moved to UNC-Chapel Hill from April 20 to approximately Oct. 20.
“They’ve worked very hard, and we’re very proud of what they’ve done,” said Dr. Richard Gay, assistant professor in the Art Department.
"There will be about 45 works on display by UNCP students, and the exhibition will last about six months,” Gay said.
The art-on-loan program at UNC-Chapel Hill showcases work from each of the UNC campuses on a rotating basis.
"I like doing stuff that people can actually put in their homes,” she said.
“I wanted to try something more playful, more decorative, more contemporary,” Patel said.
Patel used acrylic paint in her pieces. Dylan Dean and Sara Lane both used wooden blocks to create prints in their works. Amanda Bartley, who is majoring in art education, designed the ad for this year’s Senior Art Show.
By dividing a rectangle into six sections, she made room for profiles of the five artists in the show with the upper left division open for each artist’s name.
The opening reception will be catered by Outback Steakhouse.
Art graduates Larry Harless and Jennifer Ganzel Sherman will showcase paintings, while seniors Mick Correll, Katie Dourte, Norma Lowry and Boyd Smith display ceramics, paintings and drawings.
The current exhibition is the first show, according to Dr. Gay, that has made use of the new vinyl-letter machine in the Art Department.
The purchase of the machine was made possible by a grant from the James G. Hanes Memorial Fund. The grant is also funding increased publicity for the gallery.
