Whitworth Students to Display Works in Junior Art Exhibit April 3-20

Whitworth students will display their works in the junior art exhibit, "NOX," April 3-20 in the Koehler Gallery. Located in Whitworth's Fine Arts Building, the gallery is open Monday-Friday, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. and 10 a.m.-2 p.m. on Saturday (the gallery is closed on official college holidays). Admission is free. An opening reception will be held Tuesday, April 3, from 5-7 p.m. in the Koehler Gallery. For more information, please call (509) 777-3258.

"NOX is an eclectic mixture of works that students created in the wee and dark hours of the night," says Amy Newton, a painting and drawing major.

The exhibit will feature paintings, prints, sculpture, graphic design and other media. Whitworth students whose works will be exhibited are Megan M. Baker, Maddison Colvin, Heather DeCamp, Betty Gardner, Toni Hagelin, Kara Hyatt, Amy Newton, Kaitlin Trott and Thayer Wild.

"The clunking and clanking of the art building settling in the night are the sounds the 'NOX' artists have become familiar with during their time at Whitworth," says Heather DeCamp, a graphic-design major. "Without these sounds, the inspiration for true art wouldn’t come."

Located in Spokane, Wash., Whitworth is a private, liberal arts college affiliated with the Presbyterian Church (USA). The college, which has an enrollment of 2,500 students, offers 53 undergraduate and graduate degree programs.
