Five West Texas A&M University art students will show the result of their college studies at an exhibition opening Thursday in Canyon.
The Spring 2016 BFA exhibition will feature work by Connor Buckles, Sarah Gray, Callie Kerby, Rayan Turner and Shelby Wilburn. It will hang through May 14 in the Mary Moody Northen Hall Formal Gallery at WT.
The exhibition opens with a reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday.
The exhibition will feature several different media, including painting, drawing, comic book design, ceramics and sculpture.
"Most of it has figurative elements to it ... (but) all of the work has a different bent," said art instructor Jon Revett.
The students, all graduating seniors, were tasked to take "an aesthetic idea and run it to its fullest to produce a cohesive body of work," Revett said.
More of the students' work will be on view in the WT Experimental Gallery from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday during the First Friday Art Walk at The Galleries at Sunset Center, 3701 S. Plains Blvd.
Northen Hall Formal Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays and by appointment on weekends. For information, email Revett at firstname.lastname@example.org.
