Union College presents 'Margins' doodle art exhibit

Doodling, often viewed as a grade school pastime, has graduated to a college campus. Not usually viewed as art, doodles are ways to pass time and help concentrate. Perhaps they are on napkins or on the back of a handout; they are carefree, fluid creations that can contain as much personality and emotion as any canvas in a museum.

Giving voice to others

Photo of Sean Dale.Sean Dale wore many hats during his time at Union College—literally. On and off stage, the recent communications/public relations graduate has been a leader in Union College’s theater program, UC Drama, for about five years. During that time, he’s been involved in seven shows, including directing a production of his own, I Never Saw Another Butterfly, in the fall of 2008.

At the beginning of the project, Dale didn’t really know where to start. “I was freaking out,” he said, “but Mark Robison gave me advice and I was able to tackle it.” Robison, professor of English and the head of UC Drama, has guided many student directors through their first shows, and Dale learned a lot about how to stage a show from Robison, including how to organize a group of actors. “Getting everyone to show up for rehearsals was the most difficult part, but in the end, it was very rewarding,” Dale said. “I almost cried at the standing ovation we got on opening night.”

'Multifaceted Design' emphasizes opaque watercolor

For Jeremy Diehl, senior studio art and pre-med major, art began as a hobby, and he continued doing it through college using it as a stress reliever from his other classes.  

Although in his exhibit, titled "Multifaceted Design," he displays oil, sculpture, pottery and airbrush, his emphasis is in opaque watercolor.

Titled “Genuinely Genus,” Reeve’s art focuses on nature and animals, though there are pieces that include people and objects.
