DELAWARE, OHIO -- "Yellow Spot," an art exhibition of Ohio Wesleyan University senior art students, will be on display at the university's Ross Art Museum April 16-May 8. The show opens with a reception for the artists on April 16 from 7-9 p.m. in the Ross Museum. The reception and the exhibition are free and open to the public.

The students chose the name "Yellow Spot" for the exhibition after reading a quote by Pablo Picasso, which states, "There are painters who transform the sun to a yellow spot, but there are others who with the help of their art and their intelligence transform a yellow spot into the sun."

"Yellow Spot" is comprised of a mixture of both two and three-dimensional art including photography, computer imaging, drawing, printmaking, painting, jewelry, metals, sculpture, ceramics and even some clothing. "This is the annual showcase of the student work that represents the accomplishments that these people achieve typically during the last two years of undergraduate study," said Justin Kronewetter, Director of the Ross Museum and Professor of Fine Arts at OWU. "This is an opportunity for them to display the work they're most pleased with in a juried show. Their work represents more than the individual artists—it represents the fine arts program as well as the larger community of Ohio Wesleyan. For these reasons, we take a great deal of pride in making sure the show is of the highest professional standards."

The Ross Art Museum is located at 60 S. Sandusky St., Delaware, Ohio. Hours are Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday 10 a.m.-5 p.m., Thursday 10 a.m.-9 p.m. and Sunday 1-5 p.m. The museum is closed on Monday and Saturday.
