Student Summer Art Exhibit on display in Janalyn Hanson White Gallery

Mount Mercy University's Janalyn Hanson White Gallery is currently displaying the work of Mount Mercy students. The exhibit runs through June 30 and is open to the public for viewing during regular university business hours. Janalyn Hanson White Gallery is located on the terrace level of McAuley Hall.

Visitors can view vibrant, innovative and inspiring pieces this summer through creative artwork by students pursuing a variety of majors. The work was completed in various courses throughout the past academic year and includes a variety of styles such as wood sculpture, charcoal on paper, ceramics, and graphic design. Also included are a number of experimental works in cut paper silhouette and mixed media.

"Though the works originate from a wide range of courses, each piece pushed students down a path of self-exploration or investigation of issues within society, such as language barriers facing immigrants, or the role of women and their treatment in the media and its effect on young women today," said Associate Professor of Art and Chair of the Department of Communications, Literature & Arts Kathryn Hagy.

Celebratory works are also included in the exhibit. Guest juror and ceramic artist Heidi Casto will select first, second and third place winners, along with honorable mentions. Students exhibiting work in the summer exhibit include: Kate Till, Rebecca Redmond, Tanya Stoyanova, Danielle Dye, Randah Espy, Jerica Christensen, Keva Fawkes, Aunna Ruiz Escobedo, Gabriel Acosta, Katie Hougas, Abby Manternach, Jessica Moser, Dana Baker-Njenga, Brandi Burnell, Caleb Upah, Nick Plagman, and Adrienne Bailey.
