April art exhibit features work of Penn State students

Artwork by Penn State New Kensington students will be on display until April 30 in the campus Art Gallery.

The Penn State Student Exhibition features the art projects for three courses -- painting, drawing and design -- taught by Bud Gibbons, professor of visual arts, and Shenyu Xu, associate professor of art at Northeastern University in Shenyang. The exhibit is free to the public.

Xu, a visiting scholar, joined the campus faculty in January for the 2012 spring and fall semesters. In addition to her educator’s credentials, Xu is an accomplished artist and has exhibited throughout China. Emphasizing vivid colors, she works predominately with traditional Chinese paint colors on rice paper. Xu will display her works in the campus art gallery during May, the month usually reserved for Gibbons’ annual exhibit, “Paintings.”

The gallery is open 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. weekdays and noon to 5 p.m. weekends.
