Local Artists Showcased at OBU’s Art on the Hill


Varied displays of local art including ceramics, 织片, 珠宝, photography and baked goods were showcased at Oklahoma Baptist University’s Art on the Hill as part of 周末 festivities. The public event was held Saturday, Oct. 21,从12点到3点.m. on the campus’ oval.

Vendors included artisans from Shawnee and the surrounding area. Aurianna帕默, a 2022 OBU graphic design graduate and owner of Foundwell, displayed her personal works of photography, hand lettering and graphic design. After graduating from OBU, Palmer continued her studies in Cork, 爱尔兰, where she received a master’s degree in digital arts and humanities. “My time in 爱尔兰 inspired many of my pieces of photography. It is so fun to return to campus and share this new business venture and my art,” she said.

OBU sophomore marketing student Chloe Grantham hosted the “Mean Green Selling Machine”, a student-created business and a key part of her marketing coursework. Grantham and a team of students designed OBU customized Christmas ornaments. “This festival is a great learning opportunity and a chance to promote the sale of our ornaments. It is a perfect way to converse and connect with customers which is an important element of sales,格兰瑟姆说.

艾玛·卡尔, a 2023 graduate of OBU’s graphic design program, highlighted various pencil sketches of notable OBU landmarks including Shawnee Hall, Raley 教堂 and a scene from OBU’s Green campus. Carter now teaches art at the secondary grade level in Tulsa.

音乐, 院子里游戏, 温暖的温度, and a mix of students, 教师, families and alumni surrounded the lineup of artists.

科里富勒, division chair for OBU’s Art and Design programs and coordinator of Art on the Hill, has been a member of the 教师 for fifteen years. He said, “Art on the Hill has a long history at OBU. 最初, it was an event that featured music, 诗歌, artwork and other creative disciplines during homecoming. Three years ago, we moved the event outside on the oval lawn.

“By being held outdoors, homecoming guests attending the noon barbeque and touring buildings have the perfect opportunity to visit booths and purchase selected pieces,富勒说. “We love the opportunity to showcase various forms of art, design and creative work of our local community. Art on the Hill is a relaxing event, a great opportunity to shop, and something we look forward to hosting each year,他总结道。.
