Michie Newly Roy’s Paintings Enjoyed In Union Chosen By SONNIA MIZZELL The art exhibit of Miss Tina Roy being displayed in the Union lounge has been generally enjoyed by the students at UNC-C. Miss Roy paintspictures which are plea sing to the eye. However, it is evident that she paints not for the esthetics of painting, but primarily to sell. Miss Roy’s strongestpointisher use of vivid colors with excellent contrast. But this point is over shadowed by her repititionof ideas. She seems to use a good idea in one painting, then proceed to use it again in another. Two such paintings, “Towers of Trade” and another unnamed one, are in- tere sting paintings that should have been hung separately. Taking a close look at the two, it is im possible not to recc^nize that they are almost the exact same paint ing except for the color. Another example of this repitition is “As tral Voyage” painted in blue and black, and “Twin Towns” done in !; red and black. Again these two J pictures are almost Identical. ;i Miss Roy does use a different f effect in several of her paintings, t; A few of them resemble water- ;i colors rather than oil paintings. ;■ Also, there is a group of good 1; Spanish paintings that resemble •; pastel drawings. J George B. Michie, Jr. had been named assistant director of admis sions, Dr. Bonnie E. Cone, vice chancellor for student affairs and cMnmunity relations, announced today. Michie comes to this campus from a positioi as director of gen eral adult and extension education and community services at Ran dolph Technical Institute atAshe- boro. One painting that this reporter ■ particularly likes is “Executive; Retreat.” This picture gives the ; viewer a sense of tremendous i space inside the s^dare containing ; the house and surrounding land. ■ But, then, looking outside the i square there is an even greater i expanse of space that dwarfs the ; area inside the square. The pic- \ ture is one that pursues much i thought. Miss Roy’s paintings are bold and appealing. Several of them j have been purchased by &culty i members and students. :■ He holds the bachelor of busi ness administration degree from Clarkscn College of Technology at Potsdam, New York, and the master of education degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He has held positions as prin cipal and teacher of Glade Valley School, as director youth work and Christian education at First Pres byterian Church at Waynesboro, Va., and as sales representative for United States Gypsum Com pany in Chicago. He is married and has three children.
