Carson-Newman’s Rachel Ramsey stands with some of her work now on display at Jefferson City’s The Creek Café. Art work by Ramsey, along with seniors Caitlyn Buchanan and Caroline Lawless, is the subject of two senior exhibits opened to the public in April.

Three Carson-Newman University Art students currently have the work on display as part of their senior exhibits. Both exhibits will run through April.

Work by Morristown’s Rachel Ramsey is being showcased at The Creekside Room at The Creek Café in downtown Jefferson City.

Ramsey, a drawing and painting student is pursuing minors in art history and business.

“My art is inspired mostly by modernism and abstract expressionism,” said Ramsey of her work.

The public can view the exhibit free of charge during the café’s business hours. The Creek Café is open Monday through Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.

“Out of the Blue” is a two-person exhibit by seniors Caitlyn Buchanan and Caroline Lawless.

“We chose the name ‘Out of the Blue’ because some of our works really are just that, and kind of random,” explained Buchanan, who is from Madisonville.

“My theme is simple: things happen out of the blue, so why not portray them in blue,” added Lawless, who calls Clinton home. Blue may be the dominant color, but the show is far from monochromatic.

Both Buchanan and Lawless are planning to teach art after graduation. Lawless will receive her art degree with an emphasis in drawing, painting and teaching, while Buchanan will earn her art degree with an emphasis in teaching.

“Out of the Blue” is on display in C-N’s Omega Gallery, located in the Warren Art Building, on the corner of Branner Ave. and South College St. The Gallery is open weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free.

Both shows are part of the school’s senior-year exhibition program, where graduating seniors showcase some of their best work in single or multi-person shows. For more information on the exhibits, contact the Art Department at 471-4985.

The University offers bachelor’s degrees in art and photography, both with traditional fine art foundations within a four-year liberal arts program. Carson-Newman is an institutional member of the National Association of Schools of Art and Design.
