Student art exhibit features paintings by three seniors

Thursday, April 21, 2011

FREDERICK, Md.—Three student artists will display original paintings April 29-May 8 in the Hodson Gallery in the Tatem Arts Center at Hood College.

The opening reception and gallery talks for the senior exhibitions will be May 5 from 5 to 7 p.m. The gallery is open daily from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

"Temptation," a series of three paintings by senior art student Elizabeth Ann Evry, illustrates the American diet and the effects of food choices on the body. She uses a variety of styles and surfaces to express her voice. Evry is pursuing a double major in history and art and will graduate in May.

Michelle Pfeiffer, in her collection of paintings titled "Conformation: The Equine Landscape," uses color, line and brush strokes to achieve abstract impressionistic images of horses and to convey their connections to the natural landscapes of the American countryside. A resident of Easton, Md., Pfeiffer, will complete her bachelor's degree in art with a concentration in studio art in May.

Taurean Washington, who will graduate in January 2012 with a bachelor's degree in art with a concentration in studio art, will display "Life is Like …" Merging realism and expressionism, his colorful paintings use imagery and symbolism to depict an array of emotions. A percentage of the proceeds from the sale of his works will be donated to the American Cancer Society.
