Waynesburg University will host a Senior Art Exhibition for Nathanael Long Monday, March 24, through Wednesday, April 16. An opening reception will take place Monday, March 31, 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.
Long’s exhibit includes paintings, photography, sculptures and ceramics pieces he has worked on throughout his academic career, concentrating on abstract art for the purposes of the show.
“Art is something I have enjoyed ever since I can remember,” Long said. “I realize now that I will always be a student of art because there is always more to learn. I like the challenge of trying to make interesting compositions using line, form and color to express myself.”
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. For more information call 724-852-3247.
