Ohio Wesleyan's Graduating Fine Arts Majors to Showcase Work in Juried Exhibit
During their time at Ohio Wesleyan University, this year's graduating Fine Arts majors broadened their horizons by learning new artistic processes and perspectives.
They will reflect those skills in "Kaleidoscope," a nine-person exhibition on display from April 15 through May 13 at Ohio Wesleyan's Richard M. Ross Art Museum, 60 S. Sandusky St., Delaware. Featuring works juried by OWU Fine Arts faculty, the exhibition will open with a free community reception from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, April 15, at the museum.
Among the students taking part in this year's graduating senior show Darien resident Teddy Mitchell.
Mitchell is pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art with a concentration in graphic design. "My photographs are a casual series of architecture, design, and figures in their comfortable environments," Mitchell said. "I try to capture nature and people in the moment, creating an exquisite and genuine frame, indulging the viewer in my piece as they look for the alluring lighting, shadows, and peculiar shapes that we rarely notice in our everyday lives." Mitchell graduated from Fairfield College Preparatory School. After earning his Ohio Wesleyan degree, Mitchell intends to pursue a career in landscape design.
Created in 1864, Ohio Wesleyan's Department of Fine Arts was one of America's first college art departments. Today, it offers both Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) and Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A.) degrees. Learn more about the department, its majors and minors, and its faculty at www.owu.edu/finearts.
