The Waynesburg University Department of Fine Arts will host a senior art exhibition for art major Laura Auten, beginning Monday, Oct. 23, until Friday, Nov. 17. The event will open with a reception Oct. 23 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

“I am very excited about my upcoming exhibition, because I will finally be able to show my work to the school and all my friends,” said Auten.

Auten said many of her pieces will be landscapes and portraits, with a mixture of both oil paintings and sketches. Her favorite medium is graphite or charcoal.

“As I work with any type of medium, I feel more relaxed and my outside world seems to fade away as I get ‘in the zone,’” said Auten. “With my drawings, I attempt to make things appear as realistic as possible, but still possessing a drawing-like quality to them.”

For Auten, the senior art exhibition is an exciting opportunity to show how she has grown as an artist at Waynesburg.

“…I feel [my education] has pushed me to further my abilities as an artist to not just copy down the world, but rather display the emotion and beauty that the world evokes,” she said. “Over the past year, I have come to realize what it is I desire within my work: the desire to not just portray a subject, but rather to create a subtle but significant meaning within each piece that will create a connection with the viewer.”

Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, or by appointment. For more information about the exhibition, call 724-852-3274.
