Milligan senior art minors display photography
MILLIGAN COLLEGE, TN (March 13, 2009) –The collective photography of Milligan College seniors Aimee Stone, Christina Spooner, and Iori Harada will display March 15-20 in the Milligan College Art Gallery in the lower level of Derthick Hall. An opening reception for the senior art show will be held Sunday, March 15, from 2 to 4 p.m.
Stone’s show, “Forgotten Beauty,” will display mostly nature photos with some buildings and people in black and white and color prints. Her favorite subject to shoot is old, rustic still life.
“A majority of the prints shown are things that have been overlooked or forgotten by society, yet I find interesting and beautiful,” said Stone, a child and youth development major from Lynchburg, Va.
Spooner, a mathematics major from Lithia Springs, Ga., will display a variety of subjects including landscapes, people, and several abstracts in her show entitled, “Undefined.”
“I decided to call my show this because I wanted to incorporate that I am a math major and ‘undefined’ is a mathematical term,” Spooner said. “I also liked this name because one of the definitions of ‘undefined’ is not precisely limited, determined, or distinguished.”
Harada’s show, “Treasure Hunting,” will exhibit several color, black and white, and digital prints of assorted subjects she finds beautiful, interesting or meaningful.
“My life is a lifelong treasure hunt, and I am hunting the true happiness,” said Harada, a pre-professional psychology major from Japan. “Each of my photographs shows fragments of happiness.”
The display is free and open to the public. For more information about the exhibit, contact Alice Anthony, associate professor of art at Milligan College, at 423.461.8970.
