Awdish presents "a bit of the unusual" in senior display at McClelland Art Gallery

Running from April 27 through May 3, 2008 a new senior exhibit will be shown at the McClelland Art Gallery. Artist Katee Awdish, senior graphic design and English major, has been drawing since a young age.

"Through my art, I like learning about myself, and I figure out what in life really brings me joy," Adwish said. "When I'm creating a new painting with a new character, I think about what his story might be. I figure out details in his clothing and the colors and personality he is. I learn a lot about myself from what I notice in the world."

Her display contains 15-20 items including fine art, ink, watercolor, topography posters and photography.

"People should come see it if they like color," she explained, "or if they like kind of a bit of the unusual, because a lot of my art has a fantasy touch. The media, anime, cartoons and books I'm reading tend to inspire my art."

The McClelland Art Gallery is in the Ortner Center on the Union College campus, 3800 S. 48th Street. Enter the campus from Prescott Avenue. The art gallery is free to the public and open daily from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, contact the Ortner Center at 402.486.2545.
