Senior Exhibit IV (Campus Events)
10 a.m. - 7 p.m.

  • Location:
  • Whitaker Gallery, Whitaker Campus Center
  • Description
  • Cayleigh Wolf’s “Aetiology” exhibition of paintings creates a separation from reality to a magical place infused with a story of imagination, adventure and wonder. She uses black and white oils with intense lighting, and she juxtaposes real and unreal to show a presence of creatures from a different world on the same plain as this world. Her subject matter ranges from mermaids to dragons to gods and goddesses. Wolf is seeking a degree in art and archeology, and she devotes all her spare time to painting. Originally from Baltimore, she learned the techniques of using oil paint for the first time at Hood College.

    Cindy Pappas’ “PMA” exhibit is a collection of handmade pottery pieces. Her wheel-thrown mugs resemble those that Vikings would use. She also creates tiled and other handbuilt projects that offer her interpretation of life’s textures, colors and moments. She often leaves parts of the bisque-fired clay unglazed, presenting a gritty, rough experience to the holder of the piece. The juxtaposition of the raw and glazed clay is her wink at the pot’s holder to take a deep breath and feel the moment.

    Evan Snowden’s “Breath” exhibit uses mixed media, including cut and illustrated pieces of paper, paints, pastels, glitter and rhinestones, to make the viewer enter a flourishing dreamland filled with fantastic creatures and hypnotic beauty. This collection consists of beautiful environments, incredible hybrid creatures, gender-fluid beings and spellbinding symbols from all around the world.

Graduate Art Exhibit II (Campus Events)
10 a.m. - 7 p.m.

  • Location:
  • Whitaker Campus Center Gallery
  • Description
  • Joseph Delphia’s “Cause and Effect” is an exhibition of functional wood fired ceramic vessels showcasing the cause and effect relationships achieved through the controlled firing of a small wood kiln. Relying on the patterns created by flame and ash traveling through the kiln, he places pots in an attempt to control the fire and the effect it will leave on each pot. Through this process, each piece receives a unique surface and also plays a role in the resulting surface on the pieces placed around it.

    Delphia teaches at the Community College of Allegheny County in Pittsburgh, Pa., and is pursuing a master of fine arts degree in ceramic arts at Hood College. He earned his bachelor of fine arts degree in studio art and bachelor of science degree in art education from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. Delphia maintains a studio at his home in Pittsburgh and is part of the Cooperative Clay Studio at the Union Project, a nonprofit arts and community organization.
