FREDERICK, Md.—Original works by two student artists will be on display April 16-27 in the Hodson Gallery in the Tatem Arts Center at Hood College.
The opening reception for the senior exhibitions April 17 from 5 to 7 p.m.; artists' gallery talks begin at 6:30 p.m. The gallery is open daily from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
A Matter of Fact showcases the oil paintings of Lena Michelle. Her paintings depict modern scenes where both historical and contemporary public figures socialize, revealing aspects of the personas behind their public identities. Her work is inspired by an interest in early American history, especially the personalities behind the stoic portraits found in textbooks.
Michelle, an art and archaeology major with a concentration in painting, resides in Virginia.
Frederick artist Antonio Franco's photography exhibit, Bikes, Babes & Beer, depicts the biker lifestyle. His images focus on the unique lines, shapes, textures, shiny chrome and colors of the motorcycles as well as the bikers who ride them. The images were shot at biker rallies in Pennsylvania and Sabillasville, Md.; and at a cycle shop and other locations in the Frederick area.
