💥Senior Spotlight💥

My name is Sarah!
• I am a third generation artist and that’s why I decided to major in art when I came to Gardner-Webb.
• My minor is in museum studies and I LOVE art history.
• I’ve worked at the Cleveland County Arts Council as long as I’ve been at GWU (5 years) and it’s been a great opportunity to build a sense of community.
• I like working in ink for the ability to create such great value and chalk pastels for the expression of color.

In my senior show I wanted to capture the essence of each person I was drawing and who they are to me, stranger or family member. Art as a means of human connection has always been important to me and I wanted to contribute to that with my final pieces at GWU

💥Senior Spotlight💥

My name is Hannah Smith, I’m an art major and a lacrosse player. Some of my favorite pieces right now are Focus and Frustration, I really like these pieces because of the way they show my tech unique with small marks/dots to convey value and the emotion of the figure! I love working in ceramics, acrylic, and pastel but my favorite is definitely pen and ink!
-Two fun facts of mine is my middle name is Felipa after my great grandma, and I have logged 725 hours playing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on the Nintendo switch!

💥SENIOR SPOTLIGHT💥

Hey, I’m Gracie, and I’m a senior at GWU!!!:)
Some facts about me:
-I transferred in to GW after getting my AFAVA at Gaston College
-I specialize in watercolor
-I love making art sentimental

My senior exhibit focuses on the importance of the female influence in my family! Covid-19 has reminded me (as I’m sure most people) how important family is, and as I’ve grown as a woman, I’ve come to become even more grateful for the amazing women that have helped shaped me into the person I am today!
I hope y’all come to see my work, as well some other great artists’ work, in April!🤍

Woo Hoo! Way to go Professor Bell! Mark your calendars!

Now that school is back in session, we hope you will join Susan Carlisle Bell, professor of Art, on Thursday, September 3, at noon on Facebook Live for a taste of her course, Christianity and Art, with a focus on African-American artist, Henry Tanner. This course is a favorite of GWU students across all disciplines. You are sure to learn something new!

Lydia chose to draw her husband, Jeff, for her assignment in Professor Bell's drawing class. Fantastic job, Lydia!
