Published on Apr 7, 2017 by Mallory Johnson

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – The Evangel University Fine Art & Design Gallery is featuring an exhibit of the works of four senior art majors and two photography minors, from April 7 through May 4, 2017.

The gallery is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and is located in the Lawrence & Alletha Barnett Fine Arts Center, just south of the Spence Chapel, facing Glenstone Ave.

A special opening night reception will be held on Friday, April 7, from 6-8 p.m.

According to Stan Maples, professor of art, there will be approximately 65 pieces shown in the gallery, which will extend to the hallways outside of the gallery.

“We have a full gamut of art being shown — prints, paintings, drawings, sculpture, graphic design, and ceramics,” said Maples.

There are four seniors majoring in the department who have their work displayed:

  • Amber Burnash from Crane, Mo.
  • Nathan Bussard from Oldtown, Md.
  • Sindy Gallegos from Springfield, Mo.
  • Micayla Lacount from Janesville, Wi.

There are two seniors minoring in photography who have their work displayed:

Evangel offers three art degrees 

The Bachelor of Arts in Art degree program is a well-rounded approach to artistic disciplines, combining a strong presence of art history and practical expertise in various studio areas. It is a 33-hour major and is a good option for a double major.

The Bachelor of Fine Arts allows artists to explore and refine their talents in the fine arts, including drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking and ceramics. It requires 58 studio hours and allows students to focus on careers in graphic design or studio work.

The Art Education degree is for the creative art student seeking certification to teach in the K-12 grades.
