"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 derive their aesthetic roots from 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. For more information on the college's art program, contact James v Langer, Art Department chair, at 336-272-7102 or email him at

How exciting! This looks to be a stellar show. I'm looking forward to the diversity in artists in regard to their interests, background, theses, etc. Yujin Yang's "Summer" is already looking really beautiful and I'm interested in learning more about their work. I will be sure to check it all out in April!

As a student at Guilford College and art lover I'm really interested in seeing what other schools in the area are doing. The Spokes show at the Gatewood gallery at UNCG really opened my eyes to the art being made at Greensboro College.

If yall are interested in visiting Guilford there will be a senior thesis show happening here at the end of the semester, date TBA, and our art blog posts on art events happening in the area:

Again, thanks for the post! I'm making the date in my calendar so I'll be sure to make it.
