thumb Lauren_HueyTennessee Tech University senior Lauren Huey will host her thesis art show at the Appalachian Center for Craft from May 1 to May 5.

Her show, “Dis Ease,” suggests that if the idea of decay can be removed from a negative association with illness, it can be beautiful. Her metal art combines copper, steel, brass and nickel using techniques of enameling, felting, raising and fabrication.

The show will be in the Craft Center’s Gallery One. Huey, of Monticello, Ark., will host a reception from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 4.

As part of TTU’s bachelor of fine arts program, all seniors are required to stage a thesis exhibition of their work.

The Appalachian Center for Craft is approximately six miles from Interstate 40 at exit 273 (Smithville/McMinnville). Go south on state Route 56; turn left immediately after crossing Hurricane Bridge. This drive leads to the Craft Center.
