Alumni Art on Display

by Sheryl Marlar

Alumni Art on Display The months of November and December are providing UWG art alums their chance to shine. The Bobick Gallery is hosting an exhibition of artwork created by established and emerging alumni artists. Not only does this exhibit promote the fine work of these artists, it also showcases the art department and highlights the quality of the artwork created by students who have come through the program.

The exhibit is curated by former West Georgia professor Don Cooper, professor of art for UWG, then West Georgia College, from 1971-76. After leaving West Georgia he went on to become an award-winning artist with collections and exhibits all over the country.

Some of the alumni participating in the exhibit are Juanita Barrow ‘75, Emma Dobbs ‘09 and Allison Garrett ‘09.

Earlier in November, the opening reception was a reunion of sorts for many art alums to reconnect with one another and visit with former faculty. The exhibit will run until December 12 in the Bobick Gallery on the first floor of the Humanities Building. The gallery is open Monday through Friday 9 a.m.-4 p.m.

It is closed on weekends and school holidays.
