ULM Art Student Currently Featured in Award Exhibition

Crystal Cardenas of Tulsa, Okla., a senior painting major at the University of Louisiana at Monroe, is currently featured in a One-Person Award Exhibition at the Wesley Art Gallery at the Northeast Campus Ministry.

On display at the gallery are twelve non representational oil on canvas paintings. In these works, Ms. Cardenas has balanced simple rectangles of color and augmented these with limited contrast and layered glazes of subtle tones of color which equate a most complex visual statement.

Such exhibitions are prizes awarded at the Annual Wesley Arts Quest, a juried competition for ULM students. Ms. Cardenas is the first student-artist to mount an award exhibition for the current academic year.

This exhibition will be on view through Sept. 20. The facility is located at 112 Delano Drive on the ULM campus and is open from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. daily.
