We have so much to show you! This is our favorite section of the website. Within these pages, you’ll see work that shows the breadth and depth of activities our students and faculty engage in. Who knows, maybe some of your work will be here soon.
The Looking Glass Gallery
The Looking Glass Gallery, located in the Plemmons Student Union Building, serves as a space for Appalachian’s emerging artists, alumni, and faculty to exhibit their artwork in a professional setting. Managed by students, the gallery aims to heighten artist recognition and to prepare artists for life outside of a university setting.
My senior show challenged me on many different level and allowed me to learn more than what I imagined.

Graphic Design Senior Show at How Space

Reception for Interrogation exhibition at How Space
I worked the Smith Gallery as a designer. Working with the Smith team and learning the ins and outs of exhibition design really made me grow in a way I didn’t think I would. Branding each show and some of the events at the gallery was an awesome experience.

Commercial Photography Portfolio Review
Commercial Photography’s Photographic Portfolio course is the program’s senior capstone class. Students produce and publish a collective set of images, register their business, produce marketing materials, and publicly present it during a final showcase that is often attended by alumni and professionals in the industry. The showcase is a great way to send off graduating classes and is a way of saying thank you to support systems (and willing models) who helped the seniors make it to graduation day.
