Spring Semester Showcases 2023
Selected works by Colleen Quinn | January 9th – 28th
Meet The Artist: Friday January 13th, 4:00PM-7:00PM
A series of 15 paintings that range in size from 10" x 14" to 5' x 7'. Using acrylic paint on canvas, the paintings are realistic, figurative and have an emphasis on portraiture. This series began four and a half years ago after I was diagnosed with stage four breast cancer. This was a harrowing and ultimately life-changing experience that caused me to refocus my art to what is most important to me, namely, the close relationships I have had and a reflection on meaning: what my life has been about. I have also been moved to reconsider my fears and acceptance of mortality and how this universal reality always seems to come as a shock. The theme of the work I am proposing for display at Widmann Gallery is how joy and pain can co-exist in the same moment, and how we connect with each other in powerful ways through these shared human experiences.

Annual Student Media Communications Exhibit
Mass Communications @ King’s College | May 2nd – May 20th
Dr. Mercincavage coordinated this Media Exhibit every year since 2011 to showcase the creativity of King’s College students enrolled in Mass Communications courses and her graphic design course in the CORE curriculum. The title of the display is the Annual Student Media Communications Exhibit. It is a compilation of mostly printed graphic design works (e.g., print ads, magazine article spreads, posters, web pages, social media ads, etc.). Computers will be used to showcase students' video and audio works from the Mass Communications broadcasting courses. Sometimes students submit work from their experience at WRKC or The Crown.
