Traveling the world

Art lines the walls for students, faculty and community members in Art 3301. The Art Gallery welcomes a new artist exhibition, which runs from Sept. 14 – Oct. 16.

The Pierce community can come see the new exhibit by an artist that has traveled the world.

Before anyone viewed the art, Renee Petropoulos spoke about her work titled “From Here To There (NOWHERE)” on Thursday, Sept. 14.

Petropoulos has a bachelor’s degree in art history, a masters’ degree in photography and a Master of Fine Arts in studio art from University of California, Los Angeles. She has traveled the world and exhibited her work internationally.

Petropoulos spoke about her background and why she chose to execute her artwork in the way she did. Most of her work comes from personal experience, she said.

A spoken word performance titled “Directed Reading: Among Nations” is set to be delivered on Oct. 2 at 2 p.m.
