Truman Student Artist Drawing Exhibition at Washington St. Java Co.

The student artists of ART 115 are pleased to present “Vamoose,” an exhibition of drawings at Washington St. Java Co. These pieces are the culmination of a semester spent exploring traditional drawing materials in an intensive studio environment.

This collection of work was created with the multifaceted topic of “travel” in mind. Issues of movement, narrative, destination, departure and the flux of placelessness are addressed. Each student artist developed and executed a unique representation of travel based on individual conceptual exploration and observational study.

Java Co. will provide goodies at a morning coffee reception from 8:30-10:30 a.m. Dec. 11.

This exhibition will be open during normal business hours at Washington St. Java Co., 107 W. Washington St., 627.4777, until Jan. 14.

For additional information, contact Emily Booth, assistant professor of art and University Art Gallery director, or 785.5386.
