Veterinary Student Artwork on Display – Fall 2016

Fri, 2016-08-26 16:02

Visit the William Rand Kenan, Jr. Library of Veterinary Medicine to see the new artwork installed August 2016. The Library entrance portholes feature reproductions of veterinary student artwork from the Spring 2016 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.

Veterinary Illustration is a one-week studio course taught at the CVM in April 2016. It offers 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. To learn more about the course, and other art and design efforts at the CVM, read the article “Creativity and a Critical Eye” (pg. 7-8) in the NCSU Libraries Focus magazine

Fourteen works highlighting a variety of drawing techniques were selected by a jury of faculty, staff and librarian judges. The seven listed below will be on display until January 4, 2017.

These works and photos of additional drawings by all students in the course will soon appear on the digital display screen in the Library. In January 2017, the second set of porthole images will be placed. Thank you to all of the artists Class of 2017: Kristina Baltutis, Candace Matthews Stroud; Class of 2018: Paige Harrelson, Jessica Loyd, Jessica Palmer, Elizabeth Smith; Class of 2019: Christine Crawford, Kris Kellermeyer, Kassie Martinez, Will Patterson, Catherine Si, David Tamas.

The drawings were photographed and prepared for porthole display by Nathan Latil, Media & Design, College of Veterinary Medicine.
