Morehead State University graduate student Megan Pater (Class of 2020) will present her Master of Arts exhibit, “The Spirit and the Earth,” later this month.

The opening reception for the exhibition will take place from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Monday, November 29 at the Golding-Yang Art Gallery in the Claypool Young Art Building. The exhibition will run from November 29 to Friday December 10.

Pater graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Convergent Media with a minor in Photography from MSU in 2020. She is a graduate assistant graduate of the Department of Art and Design while completing her Masters in Studio Art.

All of the exhibits are photopolymer engravings, a photographic engraving process. The entire work revolves around the idea of ​​the link that the human mind has with landscapes.

“I have worked hard for this set of work and am grateful to have such great family, friends and mentors who will be there to celebrate this with me at the opening reception,” said Pater. “I hope that anyone who enters the gallery to view my exhibition will walk away with new philosophical ideals that will allow them to explore the idea of ​​the connection between spirit and earth. ”
