BYU's Lee Library features new exhibits by BYU student, graduates

Two new exhibits featuring artwork by two Brigham Young University graduates and a current BYU student are now on display in the Harold B. Lee Library until Feb. 28.

"Bird Songs" is on display in the Auditorium Gallery on the first floor and features the art of Cassandra Barney and Carla Jimison.

This exhibit contains pencil drawings and paintings of various birds and women with some pieces illustrating interaction between women and birds.

Some of Barney's own experiences are portrayed in her paintings.

"The flowers and vines symbolize the unruly beauty I find in my role as a mother. Birds in nest, sitting quietly, communicate the contentment that I feel in my home. Fruit has many meanings. It can be a symbol of life cycles as it seeds, ripens, spoils and reseeds. Fruit can represent the outcome," she explains.

Both Barney and Jimison received their Master's of Fine Arts degrees from BYU. Barney currently teaches part-time at BYU and Jimison teaches at BYU-Idaho.

The "Contemporary Encaustics" exhibit by current BYU fine arts student Kristin Glaus is on display in the library's Hallway Gallery on the second floor.

"Encaustic" refers to a technique or process of painting with molten wax, resin and pigments that are fused after application into a continuous layer, giving the final product a lustrous appearance.
