SHREVEPORT, LA--Centenary College's Magale Library Gallery will feature the work of two 1967 Centenary graduates, Mary Sorrows Hughes and Lucienne Bond Simon, from Feb. 9 through March.
The exhibit is part of the activities planned for Alumni and Family Weekend to be held at Centenary's campus March 13-16. It will feature examples of both artists' work, including calligraphy, drawings and watercolors.
This show marks the third time the two have exhibited together, including their "Senior Exhibit," which was one of the requirements of their art degree. Both artists studied with Elizabeth Friedenberg and Willard Cooper while at Centenary.
Hughes is a Shreveport artist with many honors and accomplishments, including winner of the Edgar A. Whitney Award at the Southwestern Watercolor Society's 29th annual exhibition. Her usual media are watercolor and color and graphite pencil studies.
Simon is a resident of Hammond, La. She teaches art to first through third graders at Hammond Eastside Primary School where she was recently named "Teacher of the Year." She is a noted calligrapher and has given numerous calligraphy and visual workshops.
The show is free and open to the public. Magale Library is located on Woodlawn and Columbia on the Centenary College campus. Library hours are: Monday--Thursday 8 a.m.--midnight, Friday 8 a.m.--4:30 p.m., Saturday 1-5 p.m. and Sunday 2 p.m.--midnight.
