Benedum Fine Arts Gallery to host guest artists

The Waynesburg University Department of Fine Arts will host an art show Monday, Sept. 13, through Friday, Oct. 8, featuring special guest artist Janna Arnold in collaboration with Dig Devine.

The exhibition will be held in the Benedum Fine Arts Gallery and open with a reception Monday, Sept. 13, from 6 to 8 p.m. Admission to the exhibit and reception are free, and the public is cordially invited to attend.

“The collaboration between Janna Arnold, a ceramic artist based in McKees Rocks and a graduate of Carlow University, and Dig Devine celebrates the intersection between striking functional ceramics and repurposed industrial sculpture,” said Emily Wiedner, director of the Benedum Fine Arts Gallery.

The two artists began their artistic journey together during quarantine and have continued to support one another since then. This exhibition portrays their story of isolation and collaboration as they continue to uplift each other’s visions.

“When viewing this exhibition, I hope students can see that art does not have to be an individual activity. I hope they see the value of working with peers and sharing creative passions with one another,” Wiedner said.

The Benedum Fine Arts Gallery is open Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. In compliance with the Keep Waynesburg Well Plan, all guests are asked to wear a mask when attending the exhibition.
