"Faces, Spaces, Things" is the theme of an art show on USAO's campus next Friday. Art major Sylvia Ferrell will exhibit her artwork in the Davis Hall Gallery from 7-9 p.m.
Ferrell will graduate from USAO next spring with a bachelor's degree in art. As part of her graduation requirements, Ferrell is coordinating and presenting this exhibit.
After gaining a business degree in 1961, Ferrell went on to earn her Registered Nurse license in 1974. Beginning in 1985, Ferrell started working toward an art degree at USAO.
Ferrell's artwork has brought many awards, including an award in the 1981 Chickasha May Fest, where her pastel "Copper Pot and Corn" earned a second place ribbon. Last April an oil painting by Ferrell, "Indian Pride," received the Judge's Choice award in a USAO art showing.
Her works have also placed in competitions sponsored by the Oklahoma Art Guild, the Edmond Art Association and the Duncan Art Guild.
Ferrell describes her artwork as an expression of her dreams. "Painting is throwing open the windows of my dreams," she says. "From the challenge of my surroundings, it allows me expression of adventure, happiness, and visions. And through this expression, I hope to touch others."
The Davis Hall Gallery is located on the third flood of Davis Hall. The public is invited to attend.
