Huntington students to present senior art exhibit

Huntington, Ind.-Huntington University will highlight the artistry of four seniors through the Graduating Visual Arts Majors Exhibit. The following artists will exhibit their senior projects in the show: Keri Badenhop, Emily Farmer, Cassandra Lehman and Angela Morgan.

The Robert E. Wilson Gallery in the Merillat Centre for the Arts will feature the exhibit from April 1-16. An artist reception will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. on April 4.

These four artists have spent the past year creating exhibits that represent their accomplishments and show the culmination of their abilities technically, creatively and philosophically.

Keri Badenhop is a senior graphic design major from Archbold, Ohio. Her work includes a calendar of the Huntington University softball team, T-shirt designs and a cookbook. The monthly calendar is made up of photographs capturing the HU softball team in play throughout the fall season, and the T-shirt designs promote the Forester team. Her cookbook is a compilation of recipes and quotes and is designed to be a warm and personal book to read and look through.

Emily Farmer is a senior graphic design major and music minor at Huntington University. She is from Westfield, Ind. Featured in this senior art show are two of her projects: a group of 20 invitations to various events (graduations, weddings, birthdays, etc.) and a custom-designed wedding photography book. Each project was created with the purpose of showing creativity and versatility along with variation in design.

Cassandra Lehman is a senior a graphic design major from Decatur, Ind. She will exhibit a booklet of soccer team photographs and a series of photographs expressing athleticism. The booklet of team photographs was done to show that during youthful years, the good characteristics of sportsmanship begin to form. The series was done to show off the athleticism of the human body's form in the art of competition.

Angela Morgan is a senior graphic design major and Spanish minor from Bluffton, Ind. She will exhibit five oil portrait paintings and a series of three graphic posters. The oil portraits recognize a few of the key influential people in the life of the artist and present a character revelation for each of those persons. The graphic posters communicate a message that the artist considers essential, one of choosing love and compassion over hatred and rejection.

The Graduating Visual Arts Majors Exhibit is open to the public. The Robert E. Wilson Gallery is open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., before and after all Merillat Centre performances, and by appointment. For further information, contact Barb Michel, interim gallery director, at (260) 359-4172.
