CU student artists will show work at Simmons Center

DUNCAN  Cameron University hopes to offer Stephens County an array of arts this Thursday with the next program for the university's CUSC series featuring more than 75 works of art from Cameron's art students and a solo piano faculty recital by Thomas Labé.
"We have a wide variety of media that will be available at the Student Art Exhibition," said Edna McMillan, chair of Cameron's Department of Art. "It's been a great experience for our students; There's not a venue with enough space in Lawton to host the amount of work we have outside of Cameron, so this is an opportunity to show the talent within this department. ... Traditionally, we have received excellent feedback from those who attend the show. These are works that are very accomplished thanks to the help of our faculty."
This year's art exhibition will display works chosen from students throughout the department, including classical drawings in graphite, charcoal and pastel; oil paintings; photography; original prints, including lithography, mono prints and etchings; mixed media sculpture; and digital imagery and graphic design.
"The members of the art faculty are very proud of the skill development, quality and diversity represented in this collection of student artworks," McMillan said. "We are excited to celebrate and share their accomplishments with the community."
The exhibition will remain at the Simmons Center until mid-February, allowing the residents of Duncan and the surrounding area ample time to view the collection. Many of the works will also be made available for sale, with contact information to be given upon request.
