There's a ton of material to bask in and think about at this on-campus exhibit, but it's up to you to decide what resonates with you most

Campus Activities Board hosts its annual Student Art showcase. Students with a passion for art were invited to submit a piece to be featured on the second floor of the Student Union.
I’m not an artsy person, but I admire those who are willing to display their talent.
One drawing that caught my attention was a painting titled “Wrinkles” by Akash Ramesh. Ramesh constructed this composition with great detail. I noticed I continued to come back to this particular piece. Those of us enjoying our youth will one day resemble Ramesh’s muse, timeworn. The elderly woman pictured looks as if she’s staring at me. I soon realized that will be me looking at myself in the mirror one day. I’ll be the old person on the other side looking at her past self, reminiscing on everything that has happened throughout my life. This submission caught my attention; it allowed my imagination to roam as I stared into the eyes of the what could one day be me.
Art has always been one of the greatest forms of expression. This expression in turn speaks to viewers in different ways, allowing for individual interpretation. Each piece sparks a different idea and meaning for viewers, just as art intended.
I look forward to seeing what other talent our students have in the future, but this was a great experience for me. I’m sure there’s something for everyone.
The Fall 2015 Student Art Showcase will be on display on the second floor of the Student Union until Tuesday October, 6. Students are invited to enjoy light refreshments after voting for a showcase winner.
