Cedar Crest seniors Molly Bair, Amanda Dombroski, Diane Kohlreiter, Devin Ursini, Rachel Vogel and Sally Wright will have their art displayed during the show. Bair, a studio artist, said her paintings and drawings are “an emotional response to mundane or grand things.” Dombroski paints subject matter depicting average people during the course of their daily lives. Kohlreiter said her photography focuses on “emotion, light and texture.” Ursini said her drawings highlight “the natural beauty that occurs around me,” including the human body. Vogel said her ceramics represent “a personal journey exploring some of the words used to describe women today.” Wright said her paintings represent an investigation into different approaches and techniques.

Gallery Coordinator Brian Wiggins said of the senior art exhibition at Cedar Crest College: “This is by far the broadest and most ambitious work presented by an exhibition class. These students are not only talented but willing to listen and learn, and their attention to detail really shows through. This exhibition is rich with human scale art work that, coupled with thoughtful installation, creates a visceral response for the viewer.”

The Lachaise Gallery is open Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, noon to 5 p.m., as well as by appointment.

For an appointment or additional information, contact Wiggins at 610-606-4666, ext. 3469.
