College of the Ozarks graduating art seniors host senior exhibition
POINT LOOKOUT, MO. — College of the Ozarks 2019 graduating art majors will host their senior art exhibition in the Boger Art Gallery, April 29 – May 5. Located inside the Jones Learning Center, the gallery is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
The exhibition will feature the work of the following seniors:
Cole Cramer, graphic design and painting double major from Galesburg, Kansas
Ashley Klika, graphic design and painting double major from Springfield, Missouri
Becca Lokovich, painting major from Kirbyville, Missouri
Kate McKalip, ecology and field biology, painting, and ceramics triple major from DeSoto, Missouri
Brooke Thiesen, art education major from Buffalo, Missouri
“I came into college seeing beauty as having to do with a narrative and with technical perfection,” Cramer said. “That view has developed, so that I can see beauty in places where I hadn't before, which is portrayed in my work.”
“The students are to show works predominately with a unifying idea from their area of art emphasis,” said Anne Allman, professor of art. “Senior art exhibitions tend to be eclectic in appearance as media, techniques, and interests of the artists are varied.”
