Students showcase art at open house

posted in: Student Life | 0

Faculty, students and staff are welcome to come support the second annual Art Department Open House that will be taking place on Nov. 19 in both Brown Hall and Warner Hall from 4-6 p.m.

An event that was revived last year by the Art Department will be co-hosted once again by Pacific University’s Art Club.

“Each year we open up our doors to the public and invite all people to come in and really see what we do here as an Art Department,” ceramics and drawing Professor Terry O’Day said.

The event is open to all people and no ticket is needed for entry.

Guests can come and peruse student and faculty- made artwork, purchase art pieces that are for sale, participate in a raffle for a chance to win great prizes and even attend some art demonstrations that will be held throughout the night.

All of the different art classes will be represented at the event.

Pieces from photography, printmaking, painting, drawing, ceramics, stained glass and metal work classes will all be on display at the show.

However, anyone can participate as long as they submit their work to the Art Department two weeks prior to the event.

“The show is a chance for art students and non- art students alike to come and see what is going on in different classes and possibly even discover an interest they will pursue in the future,” O’Day said.

According to Art Club President senior Kayla Wiley, she hopes the event will show the entire student body and community that the Art Department is here making art.

Also, anybody who is interested in participating in the event is welcome to come and join.

They will learn the skills that the Art department can teach them.

O’Day and Wiley both hope that all people will come and check out the event and learn what the Art Department has to offer them.
