V. V. ppypr The mural, commissioned by the local chapter of the American Association of University Women, was unveiled Jan. 21 at its home, the Abilene Civic Center. The 510,000 exhibit traced the cityls buffalo- roaming beginning to its oil-spouting present. Students had the opportunity to study the techniques of well-known artists when the department displayed several promi- nent exhibits in the Virginia Shore Art Gallery. The most significant collection was a 28-piece showing of American Abstract Expressionist Paintings that Norman Whitefield, gallery director and art pro- fessor, called "the most important exhibi- tion we have had." The exhibit, sponsored by the Sarah Campbell Blaffer Foundation in Houston, was by leading post-World War II artists. Whitefield said these artists established the first American school of art and caused the center of the art world to move from Paris to New York. Green said the exhibit was one of the most prominent displays to come not only to ACU but also to Abilene. "The paintings were by a group of art- ists who were the 'masters of the old masters' of contemporary American art," Green said. "It isn't often that we are able to have an exhibit of such significance in Abilenef, Another display that sparked the in- terest of Abilene art-lovers was the September show of Florida artist Ray Burggraf. Green said Burggrafs large, colorful acrylic paintings were based on his impres- sions of places and experiences. Twenty art majors were graduating seniors, which caused several departmental changes, Green said. "The increase in the number of seniors in the program was not a reflection of in- creasing enrollment, but some students finished late, others finished early and some graduated on schedule," he said. The more than double number of seniors caused the doubling up of senior shows in the Shore Art Gallery, Green said. Another change was that the seven studios assigned to graduating seniors had to accommodate three students instead of the usual one or two students. However, Green said these changes didn't cause problems in the department, although some students were disappointed not to have a solo art show. "But on the other hand, it created stronger shows because the students had to limit their list of works to their best crea- tions," he said. Full-time faculty members were given the opportunity to show their work to the community when they participated in a series of lectures sponsored by the Abilene Fine Arts Museum. Faculty members spoke about their latest creations and discussed the techniques used. Green said classroom activities stressed creativity, and students were encouraged to express their thoughts and feelings. Ar 43
