Eisenhower displays paintings by Penn State School of Visual Arts students

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Paintings by four undergraduate students in Penn State’s School of Visual Arts painting and drawing program are on display in the Eisenhower Auditorium Conference Room as part of an ongoing collaboration between the Center for the Performing Arts at Penn State and the School of Visual Arts. The spring semester 2013 exhibition is titled "Faces and Figures."

The paintings — all created in 2012 — are:

• "Limbo," a 60-by-90-inch oil on canvas by Josephine Seungah Lee

• "Going to War," a 48-by-65-inch oil on canvas created by Ellie Skrzat

• "Contortion," a 54-by-78-inch acrylic on bed sheet painted by Caitlin N. Golesh

• Untitled, a 126-by-58-inch acrylic, oil and spray paint on two adjoining canvases by Danny Ferrell

Graeme Sullivan, director of the School of Visual Arts, selected the paintings by the students, each of whom is a drawing/painting major.

The ongoing Eisenhower exhibits provide exposure for the creative works of Visual Arts students and faculty. The conference room is open to the public for Artistic Viewpoints and Kids Connections sessions one hour before most Center for the Performing Arts presentations at the auditorium on the corner of Eisenhower and Shortlidge roads.
