WU’s Benedum Fine Arts Gallery to host guest artists

The Waynesburg University Department of Fine Arts will host an art show running through Friday, Oct. 8, featuring special guest artist Janna Arnold in collaboration with Dig Devine.

The exhibition will be held in the Benedum Fine Arts Gallery; admission to the exhibit is free and open to the public.

Arnold and Devine began their artistic journey together during quarantine and have continued to support one another since then. This exhibition portrays their story of isolation and collaboration as they continue to uplift each other’s visions.
