Cameron University will showcase the work of senior art major Amanda Coates with a special exhibition in the Sciences Complex. Coates will present a gallery talk at 3 p.m. on Thursday, February 5 to introduce the exhibition, which will focus on marine life and nature. The exhibition will be on display through mid-March.
"The Department of Art is excited to show Amanda's works in the Sciences Complex,” says Katherine Liontas-Warren, professor of art. “Throughout her studies in art, Amanda has excelled in every studio class. She is a highly motivated individual who produces art day and night. Her narrative works reflect her fascination with marine life and nature."
“Fish have always been an interest to me,” Coates says. “It's such a joy to read about all of the creatures that live in Earth’s oceans and to see just how strange they are. Their odd features are so inspiring to me as an artist. It's very exciting to show the campus community a bit of my work and to speak with them about some of the most bizarre creatures that live in the depths of our oceans.”
Coates, of Lawton, will graduate in May with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in art.
