Covenant Art Exhibits
At the start of the spring 2012 semester, two exhibits displayed the work of Covenant students.
For two weeks in January, the AVA (Association for Visual Arts) gallery in Chattanooga's North Shore district hosted an exhibit showing student paintings produced in Professor Jeff Morton’s “Painting II” course. In the same month, a senior exhibit in the Kresge Memorial Library Gallery displayed works from eleven senior art majors.
“The show helped us anticipate the work they’ll be doing in their senior integration projects,” says Professor Morton. The senior integration projects in art will go on display on Covenant's campus in April.
As the semester continues, Covenant offers more opportunities to enjoy the visual arts. Currently on display in the Kresge Memorial Library Gallery is a collection of portraits by Neely Hyde. A Chattanooga-based artist, Hyde uses large-scale black-and-white photography to examine both the physical and emotional character of her female subjects. The exhibit, “Neely Hyde: another pair of eyes,” is free and open to the public through March 2, 2012.
