UC student Derek Wolfe presents senior art exhibit

 


WILLIAMSBURG, Ky. – The University of the Cumberlands Art Department hosted a reception for student Derek Wolfe, Corbin, Ky., in the campus’ J.M. Boswell Art Gallery on Friday, April 13. The reception was held to celebrate Wolfe’s achievements in his senior art exhibit, on display in the Boswell Gallery during the preceding week.

The mediums displayed in Wolfe’s exhibit highlight the diversity in his work, and included charcoal, clay, oil on canvas, chalk pastel plaster and wood construction.

“I like to experiment with all types of things,” said Wolfe of his varied collection of artwork. “That’s what all this came from.”

Wolfe double majors in art and business management information systems, and hopes to someday own his own computer repair shop. Although he isn’t certain of the direction his artistry will take him, he plans to continue in some form.

“It’s been my hobby since I was really young,” he said. “I’ve always liked doing it.”

This summer Wolfe plans to serve as resident assistant at UC. Although when asked he said he has no set plans for after graduation, his fiancé piped up, “he plans to get married!”

Wolfe is the son of Laura Stern and the late Donnie Wolfe, and the fiancé of fellow student Dayna Hill.

Located in Williamsburg, Ky., University of the Cumberlands is an institution of regional distinction, which currently offers four undergraduate degrees in more than 40 major fields of study; nine pre-professional programs; seven graduate degrees, including a doctorate and six master’s degrees; certifications in education; and online programs.
