Waynesburg University will host a Senior Art Exhibition for Jason Propst Monday, March 23, through Friday, April 10. An opening reception will take place Monday, March 23, from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Benedum Fine Arts Gallery. Admission is free, and the public is cordially invited to attend.
Senior art exhibitions take place each semester to provide veteran art students with a platform to showcase the products of a practiced creative process. Students spend four years creating and preserving pieces they are most proud of for this very occasion.
With several Asian inspired pieces, Propst’s exhibit includes sculptures, paintings, jewelry and drawings he has worked on throughout his academic career.
“Art is important to me because when I was younger I did it just for the joy of creating something I wanted,” Propst said. “Now I do it because there is nothing on earth that calms me like working on an art piece.”
The Art Program at Waynesburg University allows students to mold, paint and sketch works of their imagination while providing the tools to grasp a comprehensive knowledge of techniques and history. Students hone abilities through class discussion, demonstrations and exhibits.
Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, or by appointment. Call 724-852-3247 for more information.
