Waynesburg University’s Benedum Fine Arts Gallery is hosting an exhibit now through Monday, Nov. 9. Students, faculty and staff are welcome to attend Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The exhibition features work created by Emily Jensen, a Waynesburg alumna and lecturer of art.
Jensen received a bachelor’s degree in studio arts and arts administration from Waynesburg in 2017 and a Master of Fine Arts degree in studio arts from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in 2019.
The exhibit features work she created while enrolled at the academy as well as work created thereafter.
“My favorite piece is ‘Grace;’ it’s a wall-hanging sculpture of a deer. It's reminiscent of the last group of work I did while I was a student at Waynesburg University - which was a series of prints of animals. I believe the print of the deer is on campus somewhere, possibly in Stover,” she shared.
The exhibition will serve as Jensen’s introduction to campus and provide inspiration for current students interested in art.
“I work with a lot of different materials, so I hope it's a good example for students to see there are more ways to make art than just drawing, painting or sculpting from clay. I hope it also gives an insight of how you can express your faith and relationship with God through art,” Jensen said.
For anyone unable to attend in-person, an online catalogue of the gallery is available below:
