Schreiner University has a solid national reputation for turning out graduates in Communication Design who go on to successful careers that span the media and business worlds. According to Kerr Arts & Cultural Center’s Executive Director Debbie Minns, “Under the leadership of Professor David Smith and his colleagues, Schreiner University offers talented students practical and contemporary design education that is second to none, and the work by Schreiner seniors displayed in this year’s show confirms that reputation.”
The show spotlights a group of 8 senior students who will be exhibiting presentations that they have created to satisfy the exacting requirements of their senior thesis research. The dominant theme of this show is the diverse ways that visual imagery is used to communicate. Visitors will enjoy browsing student projects that include pieces using 2D, 3D, multimedia, illustration, and photographic techniques to present a clear message to the viewer on a theme that the student believes is important and relevant.
The Communication Design show runs from March 30th through April 23rd, with an opening reception that is free and open to the public on April 1st from 2-4 pm.
Limestone and Flint aren’t the only bedrock in the Hill Country this Spring – a rock-solid love of art is alive and well among the students of area communities. Kerr Arts & Cultural Center’s Executive Director Debbie Minns’s pride is evident as she notes that “We have 15 schools and nearly 1200 work of art by students on display in our galleries for this year’s Youth Art show, and the variety is simply amazing. This annual exhibition is also a tribute to the enthusiasm and dedication of our community’s teachers in inspiring their students to get their creative juices flowing.”
This year’s Youth Art show begins March 30th and runs through April 23rd, with a free public reception on April 8th from 2-4 PM at the KACC galleries. The theme for the 2017 reception is “Still Life Painting Through The Ages”. Visitors will be charmed to see how the work of artists from past centuries is imitated in finger foods served at the reception, giving everyone a ‘taste’ of art history education. The reception is sponsored by Kerr County Abstract and Title Company.
