THATCHER, AZ—The art of two of Eastern Arizona College’s sophomore art students, Calie Kilpatrick and Jeanné Schaser, is currently on display in the College’s Gherald L. Hoopes Jr. Activities Center until April 16, 2009. The show is free to the public and can be viewed at any time.

“Each spring, the Art Department displays work from the sophomore art majors. Student work is varied and shows the best pieces created by the student as they completed the course work for the program,” says EAC art instructor Kenny Rhodes. “The work is from a variety of media including drawing, oil painting, printmaking, and photography.”

“It is a pleasure to have the opportunity to showcase the work of our graduating students,” continues Rhodes. “As an instructor it is exciting to see these students at this stage of their artistic development.”

Calie Kilpatrick will be graduating with an Associates in Art this May. Though she is adept in a variety of mediums, she is especially fond of oil painting as well as colored pencil art. “The colored pencil allows a lot of control as well as a range of color to choose from,” says Kilpatrick. She plans to continue her education in art after leaving EAC and explore a variety of different styles and mediums with her art.

Jeanné Schaser will also be graduating with an Associates in Art in May, and she plans to continue her education at Arizona State University to study photography. “My two favorite mediums to work in are photography and printmaking,” says Schaser. “There’s many different styles and techniques in both, so my creativity is always being challenged.”
