Guerrieri University Center Art Space Presents 'An Exploration: Molokini" August 19-September 25

SALISBURY, MD---The Guerrieri University Center Art Space showcases the exhibit “An Exploration: Molokini” by senior art major Lauren Feusahrens from August 19-September 25.

The artist drew her inspiration for the five-painting series from a photograph taken at Molokini Island in Maui, HI, during her freshman year at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. The photo, she said, represents a turning point in her life, as she came to terms with the fact that her dream of playing NCAA Division I lacrosse may not come to fruition. The paintings represent her feelings at that time.

“My art is about exploration — about taking educated, thoughtful risks,” she said. “I strive to find my own boundaries and work to exceed them. Painting has allowed me the opportunity to connect my creativity and conceptual side with my physical energy.”

The Solomons, MD, resident recently earned the SU Art Department Alumni and Art Memorial Recognition Award. She is pursuing a B.F.A. at SU.

The Art Space is located in the Guerrieri Center’s second-floor concourse. Admission is free and the public is invited. For more information call 410-543-6247 or visit the Art Space Web site at http://www.salisbury.edu/guc/artspace.
