The play examined the spectrum of judicial opinion interpreting the U.S. Constitution’s First Amendment religion clauses, which state, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”  The celebration was attended by members of the Rotary Club of Waynesburg, the Central Greene School District gifted program, The Linsly School and many local homeschoolers.

Shawver’s exhibit will feature batik, ceramics, drawings, linoleum and woodblock prints, paintings and photography that she has created during her four years at Waynesburg University. Various works will be available for purchase. 

The Art Program at Waynesburg University enables 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.

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.

Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, or by appointment.

Call 724-852-3274 for more information.
