Lees-McRae College and the Division of Creative and Fine Arts are pleased to announce the Communication Arts and Design Student Show.

The show will open Thursday, November 15 with a 6 p.m. reception in King-Shivell Gallery in the Cannon Student Center, and will be on display through the middle of the Spring semester, providing opportunity for viewing and enjoyment.

"We are excited for the show because we have not had the opportunity to showcase student work for almost two years,"� said Melissa Ball-Martin, program coordinator for Communication Arts and Design. "This show is to promote our students achievements, the program, and what we have to offer here at Lees-McRae, for both majors and non-majors."�

Between fifty and seventy students are planned to participate and almost one hundred different pieces are expected to be displayed. Artwork on display will represent a combination of courses offered at Lees-McRae, including Digital Imaging, Photography, Painting, Drawing, Mixed Media, Sequential Imaging, Electronic Publishing, and Graphic Design. Faculty and mentors involved in the show are Chris Carr, Melissa Ball-Martin, Jesse Knight, and Michael Joslin.

The evening will begin with the art show and reception followed by the opening of Pride and Prejudice at 7:30 p.m. in Hayes Auditorium, directed by Dr. Tessa Carr.

Come and meet the student artists, observe their talent, and enjoy some light refreshments.
