THATCHER, AZ—The paintings and drawings of two of Eastern Arizona College’s sophomore art students are currently on display in the College’s Gherald L. Hoopes Jr. Activities Center until April 10, 2009. The show is free to the public and can be viewed at any time.

“Each spring, the Art Department displays work from sophomore art majors. This work represents the best pieces the students have completed while enrolled in the program at EAC,” says EAC art instructor Kenny Rhodes. “The work is from a variety of media including etching, drawing, and oil painting. This year, the two featured artists are JoyLynn Saline and Crystal Jensen.”

Both women are talented art majors who have expanded their knowledge and talents while at EAC. Jensen, who hails from Roswell, NM, is a double major in Graphic Design and Art. She currently works as a graphic designer for Xpressions, a local graphic design and marketing business. After graduating from EAC this May, Jensen plans on transferring to Brigham Young University-Idaho to major in Fine Arts with a Graphic Design emphasis.

Saline, who graduated from Snowflake High School, will be completing her Associate of Arts degree in Art this May and plans to begin a second degree at EAC in Graphic Design. After completing both degrees, she intends to transfer to Arizona State University to continue her education in art.

“I am impressed by the quality and variety of work accomplished by these students, says Rhodes. “They have been a pleasure to work with.”
