HANNIBAL, Mo. — Hannibal-LaGrange University students and faculty had art pieces featured in the 28th annual Mary S. Oakley and Lee Lindsay Artist Showcase at the Quincy (Ill.) Art Center.

Students Faith Barrowclough, Amanda Finnerty, Emily Woodhurst and Zach Woodhurst each had art featured in the show last weekend. HLGU marketing coordinator and graphic design instructor Todd Damotte also had a piece featured.

In a press release, Tammy Emerson, HLGU assistant art professor and art department chair said, “It was an honor for all of these students to have artwork accepted into their very first art show. I am so proud, as they are not only wonderful artists but amazing people in Christ as well.”

Barrowclough’s acrylic piece is titled “In the Grove.” Finnerty submitted a pencil drawing called “New Life.” Woodhurst had two pieces in the show: a colored pencil piece titled “Myths and Legends” and a mixed media piece called “Spies.” Woodhurst’s entry featured a graphite and charcoal piece called “Capturing a Moonlit Sunflower.” Damotte’s mixed media piece is called “Tree of Life.”

These six pieces were among only 100 selected works of art from the area to be featured in this show. They will be on display at the Quincy Art Center, 1515 Jersey, through Jan. 7. The Art Center hours are Wednesday through Saturday from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. with exhibits free and open to the public
