Love, a senior graphic design major from Covington, La., will exhibit a variety of typographic and hand lettering designs she has created during her time at Ouachita. Starting Ouachita with a plan to become a veterinarian, Love changed majors when she realized her affinity for art and graphic design was something that could lead to a career.
“The speed at which growth takes place in our lives still never ceases to amaze me,” Love said. “My outlook on my own design and artwork has molded and matured so much since I began just two and a half years ago.”
Reflecting on her growth, Love said, “I used to draw all of my cards and posters by hand, but since becoming a graphic design student I have been able to use software that allows me to transfer my drawing skills onto the computer through a tablet.
“As graphic designers, we work for hours and hours on one piece, perfecting it and manipulating it,” Love added. “I’m excited for this exhibit because it will allow me to share who I am as an artist with those who visit the gallery.”
Regular gallery hours for the exhibit are 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday. For more information, contact the School of Fine Arts at (870) 245-5129.
