Student art show displays talent

AU seniors’ portfolio work includes CD covers, oils on canvas

ANDERSON, Ind. — Grace Johnson’s artwork titled “Contribute,” a single-word message etched from one piece of aluminum, is about as bold and to-the-point as you can get.

Its typeface of capital letters (except a lowercase “i”) would fit in the hallways of any educational institution that encourages its students to perform community work. And that’s why it’s proper at Anderson University, known for sending students into the world with a Christian mission.

It’s the first work that visitors see when they enter the Jesse C. Wilson galleries to view MUSE, the ART+DESIGN exhibition of work by four senior art students. The exhibit is free and runs through Dec. 21.

The seniors are presenting their portfolio work; there are 24 works in all.

Sarah Martens offers a merging of musician and music in the CD covers she has on exhibit. The covers do represent the sounds and approaches of her subjects. Her “Logo Book” (pick it up, it’s OK) has fresh designs. Her covers draw a viewer in, as in one for Joshua Powell and the Great Train Robbery — a soothing cover with a calming cool blue-grey presence and tentacles (holding banjos) rising from a sea.

Nicole Moon’s graphic designs are bold and eye-grabbing. In one ad for hair products, she uses wild splashes of color to convince consumers to “Fame Your Locks.” In a tone of controlling one’s hair style, she urges, “Tame Your Locks.” Both posters are savvy ads taking on both sides of the hair issue. She shows versatility with an advertisement for Tiffany & Co., focusing the sales pitch on a beautiful blue diamond atop comfortable aqua pillows.

Emily Pusateri’s oils on canvas capture her subjects in contemplation, anger and other emotions. “Doubt” is a woman with contemporary reflection but there’s no hint as to the nature of her doubt. “Rage” features a furious youth clutching at his shirt or perhaps an athlete upset with a call. Her works show signs of a career in progress.

    Cathy Hensley’s never been much of a drinker. It wasn’t something that interested her very much, so it seemed unfathomable that she would ever run a winery. But after her son Eric offered her and her husband, Duke, some wine he made, it changed things.
