Jones College’s Sophomore Art Exhibit features 10 sophomores

ELLISVILLE – Ten Jones College sophomore art students had the chance to display their art as part of the Sophomore Art Exhibit in the Eula Bass Lewis Art Gallery before graduation, May 22. Sophomore artists who participated in the Sophomore Art Exhibit included Patricia Daughdrill of Prentiss, Jenna Fisher of Petal, Katherine Gomez of Laurel, Hannah Mattison of Sandersville, Solomon Page of Raleigh, Zykerianta Rodgers of Crosby, Josie Russell of Mt. Olive, Brittney Sanderson of Ellisville, Noah Schumann of Laurel and Jacqulyn Smith of Richton. This was the final opportunity for these graduates to show off their talents and set up their display.

“It is a great opportunity for students to showcase the work they’ve done here at Jones over the last two years and this year’s show looks spectacular! We prepare them in all aspects of art from learning technique and the technical aspects of creating art, to learning how to best display their artwork. They have done all the matting and hanging themselves,” said Jones College art instructor, Melanie Eubanks.

The Annual Sophomore Show is a requirement for the Exhibition IV class. This course prepares students to display their artwork in a gallery for future exhibitions. The aspiring artists were also honored for their accomplishments at a reception hosted by the college on May 11.
