Park University senior to display work in Campanella Gallery

The artwork of Park University senior Abby Holloway will be on display at the Campanella Gallery on the University’s Parkville Campus beginning Thursday, Nov. 29, through Sunday, Dec. 16. A reception for Holloway is planned for Saturday, Dec. 15, from 6 to 8 p.m.

An art education major from Blue Springs, Mo., Holloway attended Blue Springs South High School.

“Many of the pieces reflect my attraction for animals, especially those possessing unique characteristics and appendages such as tentacles or antlers,” Holloway said. “I possess an eye for design, which is explored in various elements such as line weight, movement and composition. Rich patterning can also be found throughout various pieces.”

The body of work includes samples from multiple mediums, including paintings, charcoal and pastel drawings, photographs, ceramics, sculpture and ink designs.

“I have a passion for learning and strive to help students learn and grow in their education and artistic talents,” Holloway said. “I enjoy working with all mediums, always striving to learn more and further develop myself as an artist.”

The Campanella Gallery is located in the McAfee Memorial Library in Park’s underground Mabee Learning Center, which can be entered through Millsap Foyer. Admission is free. The library’s hours are 8 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday; 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Friday; 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday; and 4 to 9:30 p.m. Sunday.
