Georgia Ivie, a graduate student getting her M.A. at UNCP, hosted an Art Center Student Show at the Pine Street Senior Center in Lumberton on March 24.
Artwork consisting of light houses, solitary birds and barns adorn tables lined for spectators at the Pine Street Center. Each piece is carefully done, with lots of heart and careful consideration when it came to each brush stroke.
“I have been here since October 2006 and Georgia’s classes have grown in number. The exhibit was a success, all the students had some really good paintings overall.” Tonya Alford, coordinator of the Pine St. Center said.
“Georgia has a fantastic outlook and is very dedicated to her students, they mean the world to her.” Alford said.
“I have been teaching these classes for over a year now.” Ivie said. She refers to her goal as “teaching perspective.”
Ivie believes that the frame around the artwork “can make or break the picture.”
