Kelli Langston will present her Master of Arts Exhibition at the Arkansas State University Fine Arts Center Gallery Feb. 18-22. An opening reception was held on Monday evening.

The exhibition will include several bodies of work focusing on the

Imperceptible. In her artist's statement, Langston says: "In our

busy everyday lives, we neglect the natural beauty around us. I

observe this beauty in nature, in man-made objects and in the

elegance of the human form. By focusing on the details in these

objects, the hidden becomes visible, appreciated and no longer


Langston lives in Arbyrd. Her son Zack Wilson will graduate high school in May. Her daughter Brittani has played an important role in the technical aspects of printing large-scale intaglio prints. Langston received her BFA from ASU in 2007 and began working on her Master of Art from ASU in Florence, Italy that summer.

Kelli would like to extend a special thank you the following: Dr. Dan Reeves, Professor Curtis Steele, Dr. Temma Balducci, Assistant Professor Shelley Gipson, and Ms. Joyce Jaynes.
