BOONE—The exhibit “Beauty in All Things” is on display in Looking Glass Gallery at Appalachian State University. The exhibit, featuring work from Professor Elaine O’Quinn from the Department of English, will be on display through Sept. 10. A reception will be held Friday, Aug. 28, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.
The gallery, located in Plemmons Student Union, is open weekdays 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sundays from 2 to 7 p.m.
O’Quinn has always dabbled with art while pursuing her career in English. She has attempted everything from acrylic paintings to pottery, but when she discovered alcohol inks, she was hooked. The abstract tendency of her work portrays her intention to synthesize inspiration, materials and techniques to create a mood and composition that in the end is simply about the color and beauty that surrounds us.
