Veterinary Student 2015 Artwork on Display

VetMed News - Fri, 2015-07-31 17:05

Visit the William Rand Kenan, Jr. Library of Veterinary Medicine to see the new artwork installed July 29, 2015. The Library entrance portholes feature reproductions of veterinary student artwork from the Spring 2015 Veterinary Illustration Selective VMC 991-29 taught by Dr. Michael K. Stoskopf, Professor of Aquatics, Wildlife, and Zoologic Medicine and of Molecular and Environmental Toxicology.

This was a one-week studio course taught at the CVM in April 2015 offering veterinary students the opportunity to hone their observation as well as their drawing and illustration skills with live observations at the Teaching Animal Unit and other locations. Students became familiar with basic drawing and pen and ink techniques with an emphasis on rendering from three dimensional objects, living animals, and photographs from books and journals in the Libraries’ collections.

Seven works highlighting a variety of drawing techniques were selected by a jury of faculty and librarian judges.

Bottom Row (Left to Right)

These works and photos of additional drawings by all students in the course will soon appear on the eboard in the Library. Thank you to artists Kelsey Arrufat (Class of 2016), Amanda Flagg (Class of 2017) and Class of 2018: Megan Barbar, Haley Hegedus, and Katelyn McSpadden. The drawings were photographed and prepared for porthole display by Nathan Latil, Media & Design, College of Veterinary Medicine.

The color printer (A110-1 color) and B&W printer (A110-1) previously housed in the Vet Med Library copier room have been removed and replaced with a Follow Me printer that can do both color and B&W printing.
