WMC to display paintings, sculptures of Oletha DeVane


Maryland-based artist Oletha DeVane, who works in rocks, wood, fabric and paint, will display her large-format paintings and sculptures at Western Maryland College's Gallery One beginning Nov. 3.

The exhibition is free and open to the public. Gallery One, in the Hoover Library, is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays.

Ms. DeVane, of Ellicott City, taught an introductory design class at Western Maryland last year.

A former visual arts program director for the Maryland State Arts Council, Ms. DeVane conducts classes and public lectures, participates in art exhibitions and is an independent curator.

In August, she exhibited dolls reflecting her interpretation of various cultures at the National Black Arts Festival in Atlanta.

Five paintings and two sculptures will be exhibited at Gallery One.

The works will be shown on the library's third floor on the west side of the building through Nov. 20.

The final Gallery One presentation of the fall semester will be drawings and paintings by Randy Gornowich, beginning Dec. 1. Spring exhibitions are being planned.
