Senior Art Show
SARAH AWAD '03
FRIDAY, APRIL 11, 2003 3:00 p.m.- 4:30 p.m.
When asked about the representation of the soul, a typical CMC student might refer to philosophical writings or literature. Senior Sarah Awad, however, turns to paint. "Corresponding with my belief that everything physical has a spiritual connection," Sarah writes, "I have always sought to express something deeper than the transitory nature of a person, something beyond the finite flesh." Her current body of work, a culmination of a four-year struggle with diverse styles and mediums, concentrates on portraiture. Through this focus, she hopes to reassign value to the human individual and place particular emphasis on the role of portraits as a method of attaining a fuller knowledge of who humans are and who they are created to be. Sarah is a studio art and math major at Claremont McKenna College. In addition to her show and reception at the Athenaeum, Sarah's work will also be shown in the Williamson Gallery at Scripps College on April 25. All are invited to attend.
