Katherine Watts ’07 is a USI graduate who recently received her Masters of Fine Arts from the University of Louisville. -RHIZA, a collection of works of art that focuses on an immersive experience of local ecology and the dichotomous relationship between humans and nature, is presented through the eyes of the artist, eco-philosophy, eco-feminism, mycology and metaphor.
On Thursday, October 21st, at 4:30 p.m. Watts will give an artist lecture about her work and the exhibition. The lecture will take place in the USI Performance Center, adjacent to the University Center East.
2021 Senior seminar exhibition
the 2021 Senior seminar exhibition shows the creative work of 10 students from the fields of studio art, graphic design, interactive media and illustration. The senior art and design seminars are final courses for the main subjects of art and art education and combine the examination of current aesthetic issues in the fine arts with practical knowledge in preparation for a career or university. The keystone courses are also an assessment of the students’ artistic growth and potential. This group exhibition is the culmination of these courses and a highlight in the careers of art students at USI.
Participants in the show include Laisha Diaz De Leon, Kassiti Fink, Jade Hatcher, Ally Hinton, Mitchell Marcrum, Jerrith Morrison, Kelsey Parker, Faith Spahr-Munoz, Elizabeth Vanada, and Joely Will.
The exhibition will run from October 18 to December 10. The gallery’s opening times are from Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on Sundays from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. The McCutchan Art Center / Pace Galleries is located on the lower level of the Liberal Arts Center.

Face covering is required in the gallery and in all campus buildings. A physical distance of one meter or more is also expected at all times. If you plan to bring a group of 10 or more to the exhibition, you should contact the gallery in advance.
