Central Texas College announced Wynona Alexander, adjunct art professor, will be the featured artist in an ongoing exhibit at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor in Belton.
Hosted by the UMHB College of Visual and Performing Arts and the UMHB Art Department, “Full Circle: Wynona Alexander, A Retrospective,” opened Monday and will be available through Feb. 9 in the Baugh Center for Visual Arts Gallery.
Alexander, who has taught college-level art courses for the past 50 years, returns to UMHB, which was her first teaching appointment in 1969. She would then teach at CTC, where she chaired the art department, from 1969 to 2010.
Since retirement, she continues to teach art metals classes at CTC as professor emeritus.
Her exhibit, “Full Circle,” celebrates a retrospective art exhibit presented at the school where Alexander’s teaching career began. Works on display are sculptural assemblages and art jewelry spanning the last 30 years.
Regarding her art, which is largely assembled from found objects, Alexander said, “There is always a sense of magic when something becomes something else. When these ordinary objects are twice transformed-by time, erosion and the human hand, and again by their ultimate juxtaposition-the whole, heretofore unseen object seems the result of mystical forces.”
“Full Circle” will be on display during the gallery’s business hours of 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.
