FALL 2017 UNDERGRADUATE EXHIBITION
Wellington B. Gray Gallery
October 6 – 26 2017

Awards Ceremony, Friday, October 6, 4:00 p.m. in Speight Auditorium.

The annual East Carolina University School of Art and Design Undergraduate Exhibition will be on view in the Wellington B. Gray Gallery from October 6 through 26, 2017.  Area curriculum coordinators in the School of Art and Design select the outstanding works submitted from over 400 undergraduate students.. The Awards Ceremony will take place Friday, October 6 at 4:00 p.m. in Speight Auditorium of the Jenkins Fine Arts Building. This year’s awards judge, Michelle Harrell, will announce the winners. The opening reception will follow immediately in the gallery.

Michelle Harrell is the Director of Teaching and Learning at the North Carolina Museum of Art. She received her Associate of Arts degree from Peace College and her BFA and MAEd from East Carolina University. After 13 years of teaching middle and high school art, she began a position in 2010 to develop distance learning programs at the NCMA. She now supervises the education team responsible for learning experiences from camps, tours, online programs, lectures, outreach, and teacher professional development. Michelle is passionate about increasing access to art experiences to share her passion for art with others. Through her paintings, prints, and journaling, she searches to capture both the sense of place and the physical mosaic of brushstrokes and interplay of colors. Michelle uses heightened color to create an emotional intuitive response to highly personal subject matter, often landscapes of my childhood. Light saturated with color creates sense of place in both her memory (emotional response) and the atmospheric effect of season and time of day.
