Alumni Art Exhibition on Display Through Dec. 8

Dec. 1, 1995

Works of art from 34 Baylor University studio art graduates are on display Tuesday to Friday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Saturday noon to 5 p.m. through Dec. 8 at the Martin Museum and University Art Gallery, both located in the Hooper-Schaefer Fine Arts Center.

Each artist has three to five works of art on display which range from paintings and print making to ceramics, graphic designs and sculptures. The artists graduated from Baylor's Department of Fine Arts between 1965 and 1993.

One of the exhibitors is Tim Hale, a 1984 graduate, who created the national advertising campaign for Fossil watches. Hale is vice president of the Fossil office in Dallas.

Other exhibitors include 1989 graduate Debra Morgan, who created the current advertising campaign for Texas wildlife, and 1993 graduate Robert Meek, who is a ceramic artist now teaching art to fifth- and sixth-grade students in Midway Middle School.

"The success of alumni is a direct reflection on the faculty of any university," said Dr. Heidi Hornik, assistant professor in the Department of Fine Arts. "Studio art majors face a great challenge upon graduation to remain committed to their medium of expertise."

The alumni art exhibit is the fourth and final in a series of sesquicentennial exhibits in the Martin Museum. The exhibits began in early 1995 with a selection from the permanent collection of Martin Museum.

For more information, contact Hornik or Paul McCoy, assistant professor in the Department of Fine Arts, at 755-1867.
