Aaron Anslow to Present Art Show at Bethany College

 
BETHANY, W.Va. — Bethany College 2006 graduate Aaron Anslow, who is returning to his alma mater as a visiting assistant professor of fine arts for the 2011-2012 academic year, will present an art show at the College August 22 - September 18. 
 
"Aaron was a stellar student as a visual art major at Bethany and was distinctive in every way,” said Kenn Morgan, professor of fine arts and director of Renner Gallery. “I am anxious to see what direction his Masters in Fine Arts degree from West Virginia University has taken him in to create his new body of work. It's good to have him back on campus! This solo exhibition in the Renner Art Gallery should be a great beginning to a new academic year and a new gallery calendar." 
 
Anslow’s solo exhibition Material & Process will be presented in Bethany’s Renner Art Gallery. He will be honored at an artist’s reception September 16 from 7:30-9 p.m. Members of the public are welcome.
 
Anslow recently received his MFA from West Virginia University (WVU), where he presented a spring exhibit — Immediacy & Gesture — that featured his ceramic work. 
 
In addition to WVU and other Morgantown locations, his art has been featured at venues in Wheeling and at Slippery Rock University, Strictly Functional Pottery National (Lancaster, Pa.), and at Jingdezhen Ceramic Institute in China.  
 
Anslow, who served in Operation Iraqi Freedom, owns All Walks of Clay, a pottery business.
