In a League of Her Own


    The senior art exhibition is featuring the work of just one senior this semester.Senior art education major Christin Sharp is the lone artist featured in the exhibition hall in Moudy North this semester. This is a rarity considering most semesters feature about four or five graduating seniors.

    Sharp’s emphasis is in ceramics, and six of her pieces are on display in the exhibition.

    Sharp said she has been working on these pieces since 2005 and said the inspiration behind her works isn’t necessarily one single thought or idea.

    “My inspiration is everything floating up in my head,” Sharp said. “It is the sort of thing where it flows and just happens.”

    Sharp said her adviser and instructor Chris Powell has helped guide her way through the art program at TCU.

    “Chris Powell is my ceramics teacher,” Sharp said. “He’s the one that pushes me, and he knows my strengths and weaknesses, which is what I need to hear to keep going.”

    Powell said he’s very proud of what Sharp has accomplished.

    “Christin has really stretched above and beyond with her works,” Powell said. “I’m very happy for her.”

    Sharp said after graduation she plans to teach art in Argyle or Keller schools. She has currently been a student-teacher at Arlington Heights High School.
