Georgetown College presents two great exhibitions for Homecoming opening this Friday!
First, join us in the Cochenour Gallery (located in the LRC) any time between 12 and 2 for "Coming Home...a retrospective of the home economics major." Support the students from Curatorial Studies (Hannah Snider, Rebecca Redding, Stephanie Boxx, Cortney Thorn, Angelina McCoy, Ashley Mitchell, Nick Wagner, Megan Sauter, Matt Thompson), enjoy some dainty delights courtesy of GC alum Amanda Hervey, and learn about the former Home Ec major.
Later, "Georgetown College Art Alumni Exhibition" opens in the Anne Wright Wilson Gallery (art building on the corner of College and Mulberry streets). The opening reception will last from 5-7 (just before Songfest!) and all are invited to join us for a variety of art, food, and an art department reunion.
Both exhibitions will run through November, 13th but you won't want to miss either of these spectacular opening receptions!
