Three Missouri Southern art students will be featured in the Spiva Art Gallery’s Senior Exhibit, which is set to open Monday, Nov. 26. The exhibit features the work of senior visual art majors Nicholas Anderson and Shay Thomas, as well as senior art education major Jessica Elliot.

Anderson describes his graphical narratives as “an exploration of sequentialism and a method of absentee communication,” and encourages the audience to interact with his artwork.

Elliot will display paintings, drawings and sculptures of animals. She says the animals are a symbol for students and personify the diversity of the modern classroom.

Thomas contributes a variety of prints to the exhibit and describes her work as “a weird combination of Japanese aesthetic and dark themes.”

To conclude the exhibit’s run, a reception will be held from 12 to 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1. Those in attendance will have the opportunity to speak with the artists about their work.

Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and admission is free and open to the public.
