GREENSBORO, N.C. -- The Greensboro College Department of Art's Spring 2014 Senior Art Exhibitions will open Friday, April 11, in the Anne Rudd Galyon and Irene Cullis Galleries in the Cowan Humanities Building on campus.

An opening reception will be held in the galleries from 6 to 8 p.m. April 11. Regular gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays and 9 a.m. to noon Saturdays. The exhibitions will remain on display through May 5. Admission to the reception and exhibitions is free, and the public is invited.

Work will be displayed by:

  • William Mason Beane, an art major from Asheboro, N.C. In his show “By any means necessary,” Beane seeks to reval the darker, more primitive side of human nature that typically stays hidden underneath the superficial shell society hides behind.
  • Ashley Ellison, an art education/teacher licensure major from Reidsville, N.C. Her work is based in her love for abstract art and experimentation; her exhibit, "Ashley in Wonderland," is inspired by the visionary work of Lewis Carroll and Tim Burton and is a glimpse through her personal looking glass.
  • Quentin Jones, an art major from Clemmons, N.C. Jones explores bodybuilding as an architectural process as he amplifies the body’s musculature through an overlaying of geometric shapes in his paintings.
  • Micaela Sandoval, an art major from Aloha, Ore. In her exhibit, "Soul of the Wild," Sandoval explores the physical and spiritual symbiosis of humanity and nature through paintings and drawings.
  • Yujin Yang, an art major from Bundang-Ku Sungnam, South Korea. Her minimalist paintings and installations inspired by nature get their aesthetic roots in the art of her native country.

Greensboro College offers the B.A. or B.S. in Art and a B.A. in Art Education to extend the mind and heart through embracing many things seemingly beyond gallery walls.
