Hendrix College proudly shares up-and-coming artists

Hendrix College proudly shares up-and-coming artists

CONWAY, Ark. -- Thursday night at Hendrix College will prove to be one that people will be buzzing about for the next month. Hendrix's 2011 Senior Art Majors are hosting the opening reception of their senior show from 4 - 6 pm. The show will run from April 7 until after graduation on May 14 in the Trieschmann Gallery at Hendrix.

The arrangement of the show allows for free flowing movement from the moment the viewer steps in. Each body of work is contained within its own area, with the exception of the sculptural elements. However, their separation adds to the singularity of each piece, whereas the other works are more of a cohesive body meant to be taken in together. Eight very different artists are feature in the show.

Despite the popularity of the photographic medium, there is a large diversity of work embodied by the photographs. Alyssa Moran has created a visual diary, in a style reminiscent of Nan Goldin's work.
