Henderson State University is hosting art exhibits featuring three artists, and receptions are planned today, 2-4 p.m.

Two art majors at Henderson State University will present their senior exhibitions this month at Huie Library. Jason Jobe of Sheridan and Matthew Axelson of Poyen will open their exhibits on Nov. 6 with a reception from 2-4 p.m. on the second floor of the library. Jobe’s exhibit is entitled Liminality, which is influenced primarily by “surreal environments and dream imagery.” His show includes a mix of collage, videography and 3-D animation. Axelson’s show is called Symbology of Senbazuruand features graphic designs. Their works will be on display through Nov. 16.

The Russell Fine Arts Gallery will feature works by Steven Wise, an artist from northwest Arkansas where he teaches art at two elementary schools. The show is entitled Alpha/Beta Projects: An Installation: P is Works on Paper. An opening reception will be held on Nov. 6 from 2-4 p.m. at the gallery. His works will be on display through Dec. 6

In the past five years, Wise’s art has been included in six solo exhibitions, 10 group exhibitions, and 10 juried exhibitions. His work has been exhibited in the most competitive exhibitions in Arkansas, such as the annual Delta Exhibition at the Arkansas Arts Center in Little Rock and the Arkansas Arts Council's annual Small Works on Paper. In 2004, his drawings were accepted into the Viewing Program of the Drawing Center in New York.
