MOUNT OLIVE -- The opening reception for the annual spring Student Art Show is Thursday, April 17 from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Teresa Pelt Grubbs Fine Arts Gallery and Laughinghouse Hall Student Gallery.

The show will be open through the end of May.

Senior Courtney Siefert of Erlanger of Kentucky will be featured in this year's show, along with many other students from the Art and Visual Communications Department.

Ms. Siefert will show paintings and drawings, which represent scenes and people from her everyday life. Her work allows one to experience the media and process of creating each piece because she doesn't focus on details.

The interest of her work lies in how colors and shapes fit together to present an otherwise realistic piece.

"I aim to keep the detail simple so the viewers' eyes are constantly moving and not focusing on just the object, but the way it was created," she said.

For many, this will be the first time displaying work in an exhibit.

The community is invited to come out and support the continued growth of the department and its students.
