The Department of Fine Arts at Waynesburg University will display a Juried Photography Show in the Benedum Fine Arts Gallery from Monday, Oct. 19, to Friday, Nov. 13. The opening reception will be Monday, Oct. 19 from 6 to 8 p.m. Admission to the exhibit is free and the public is cordially invited to attend.
The exhibit will include a display of artistic photographs taken by University students and faculty during the past year. Photos from University-sponsored Faith, Learning and Service Immersion Trips will be featured in a special section.
Andrew Heisey, assistant professor of art at the University, initiated the Juried Photography Show after being inspired by photographs his students took on a trip to Italy last semester. His goal is to showcase the variety of activities and projects in which the campus is involved, including the fact that Waynesburg students travel all over the world.
“A lot of people are afraid to do art, because picking up a paint brush can be scary. But we all take photographs,” said Heisey. “I’m hoping to see that people are surprised by the photos they’ve taken.”
The Benedum Fine Arts Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, or by appointment. Call 724-852-3274 for more information.
