**For Immediate Release**
Couple to Exhibit Graduate Work
-released by OPSU Campus Communications 03-10-2006

Goodwell, Okla. - Oklahoma Panhandle State University alumni Alex and Mandy (Kidwell) Gregory are two of many art department graduates who are completing or have completed graduate degrees. Both graduated from OPSU in May of 2003 with Bachelor of Fine Arts degrees in studio art, then attended West Texas A&M University in Canyon where both finished Master of Arts degrees last May.

Currently, the Gregorys are in their last semester at WTAMU, fulfilling the requirements for Master of Fine Arts degrees in studio art which is the highest degree granted in that field. As they anticipate graduating this May, both have upcoming art exhibits in Canyon, and the couple extends an invitation to anyone interested to attend the shows and following receptions.

Alex’s exhibition, entitled “One Thing Leads to Another,” is set for March 20-31 in the Mary Moody Northen Hall in the formal gallery on the WTAMU campus. In addition, a reception for the artist will be held in the gallery on Friday, March 24 from 6-8:00 p.m. His display will include sculptural ceramics and oil paintings.

Mandy will display her work in the same gallery from April 3-14, and her reception is scheduled for Friday, April 7 from 6-8:00 p.m. Mandy’s exhibition, “Prints on Clay,” will display her technique for combining printmaking and clay to create images on her vessels.

Alex and Mandy plan to search for university teaching positions, but hope to stay in the area near their families. They would eventually like to own a studio and gallery and teach lessons. Mandy said, “OPSU’s art degree allowed Alex and me to pursue our love of art and expand our knowledge. We hope to see many of our OPSU friends at our exhibitions to show what OPSU graduates can accomplish!”
