Coker College Senior Art Exhibit for Abby McLaurin
...opened on Monday evening in the Art Gallery inside the Coker Art Building. Abby's show is called "slightly less than life size" though the name belies the work. This was a busy night for Senior projects and I happened to be carrying the video camera when I went to the opening. One of the annual events for seniors is their own show in the Cecelia Coker Bell Gallery. It is one of their capstone experiences. The seniors spend a great deal of time thinking about the work, long before they start creating. So, I asked Abby if she would describe one of the pieces. Her short video will give you an idea of the thinking that she brought to this exhibit. While it does not have anything to do with the Show Opening, Abby is also into the second round of the Fulbright Scholarship judging for this year. If it works out, she will be doing her Fulbright in South Korea.
