Posted: Thursday, 012 December 2013

TROY – Senior art and design students are exhibiting their final thesis works through Friday in Troy University's Malone Gallery.

A reception in their honor is from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 13 in the Gallery.

The students' projects range from art that draws awareness to social issues to a fully designed bakery, a magazine targeting college-age people and bicycle trail promotion.

Exhibitors are graphic design majors:

  • Amber Cornett, from Huntsville
  • Taylor Daughtry, from Troy
  • Stephanie Davenport, from Eclectic
  • Kaitlyn Franklin, from Troy
  • Joshua Grimes, from Andalusia
  • Jordan Hammond, from Demopolis
  • Elizabeth Jenkins, from Dothan
  • Bora Kang, from South Korea
  • Seongiin Lee, from Luverne
  • Mallory Mashburn, from Dothan
  • David McGowin, Troy
  • Nolan Odom, from Sumiton
  • Anna Rhodes, Purcellville, Va.
  • Chekita Turner, from Ozark
  • Caitlin Ventiere, from Daleville
  • Junney Yang, Abbeville

Already scheduled, Davenport's project "Modern Day Idolatry" will move to Dothan's Wiregrass Museum of Art and several other students' works may find homes elsewhere.

McGowin plans to present his "BIKE" initiative to the Troy City Council to implement a bicycle friendly environment in the city.

"Troy has begun booming into a vibrant, college-based community. Because of its size and demographics, it's the ideal city for the BIKE initiative to take root," he said. "I want my audience to see how bicycling can better the community of Troy, Alabama."

Malone Gallery is open from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. daily, and is free and open to the public.
