Xavier University and the Department of Art are pleased to present an exhibition by two senior art majors - Karen May, Painting and Alexandra Morris, Prints. The exhibition opens on Friday, April 29 through May 6.
Karen May presents Growth, a series of paintings that represent a timeline of a single girl and the development of her life from birth to Motherhood. Individual stages of development are depicted through the eyes of psychologists Erik Erikson and Jean Piaget.
Paracosm by Alexandra Morris is a series of woodcuts and lithographs that focus on the imaginary worlds created
by the artist in her childhood. The work is a discovery of how such imaginary creations can assist a growing child
and also the lasting effect of these worlds upon the creative and emotional mind into adulthood.
Please join us for the artists’ reception on Friday, April 29, from 6:00-8:00 p.m. Come meet the artists,
enjoy the art and refreshments.
