Western Carolina University in Cullowhee, NC, is presenting two new exhibits featuring works by WCU students including: the Art Students' League 2010 Exhibit, on view at the Fine Art Museum and a competition between selected students to paint a portrait of the late Josefina Niggli, on view in the FAPAC Gallery 130, adjacent to the Fine Art Museum's Star Lobby, Both exhibits are on view from Apr. 7 through May 5, 2010.

Based on the strength of previous work, six graduate and undergraduate students from the School of Art and Design were invited to create portraits of the late Josefina Niggli, an author, actress and former WCU drama instructor whom the university is honoring with a yearlong series of events. These finalists were encouraged to create portraits that, while highly expressive, would reflect a "recognizable characterization" of Niggli and faithfully express her "dynamic persona," according to competition guidelines.

A five-member committee of WCU faculty and staff will select the winning entry. That portrait will become part of the College of Fine and Performing Art's collection and will be installed permanently in the lobby of Niggli Theatre. The artist will receive a $500 purchase award.
