Fine Details, Compelling Subjects and Meaningful Imperfections Highlight Senior Art Exhibit
The University of Findlay is hosting a Senior Art Exhibit through March 23 in the Dudley and Mary Marks Lea Gallery of the Virginia B. Gardner Fine Arts Pavilion.
The works, made with different mediums, are by Katy Flint, Jessica Meek and Kacie Pohlman. Some are for sale.
A reception will be held Sunday, March 19 from 1-3 p.m. in the fine arts pavilion.
Flint, a studio art major from Clinton, Michigan, is exhibiting 10 pieces that incorporate digital design, oil, Conté crayons and ceramic. She typically focuses on two styles, one that uses graceful ink lines for detailed technique, and another that is quicker, but more expressive.
“Whether I spend hours on a carefully crafted creature, or doodle up a quick little figure, all my work speaks of the hope and magic of life,” Flint explains in her artist statement.
Meek is a children’s book illustration major from Kilaueau, Hawaii, who has 14 pieces in the show. Her works range from using mixed media to watercolor.
Meek explains that art allows her “to connect to people in a way that nothing else can. My art focuses on the disjointed, but beautiful nature of those human connections as well as the fragments that make up each individual person.”
Pohlman, a Fostoria resident, is majoring in psychology. She is exhibiting nine pieces, some of which are the largest in the gallery. She works with oil, acrylic, charcoal and digital photography.
“Bold markings, thick applications, and spontaneous subject matter are what bring my art to life. I lean toward more flexible mediums because I like being able to appreciate mistakes,” Pohlman’s artist statement mentions.

The Lea Gallery is open daily from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. All of its exhibits are free and open to the public.
