Cornhuskin’ continued from
The juniors were clad in clown
costumes right down to the face paint.
The skit was complete with a circus
tent and rings. Circus members ranged
from elephants, monkeys and lions to
strongmen, trapeze artists and ring
masters. Vendors strolled the amphi
theater while a clown on a bike circled

Megan Schmidt and Deborah
Handy, their cochairs, agreed when
they stated “We always knew that our
class had potential to come together
and this year proved it! This year’s
participation was so incredible we
even had to turn people away because
we didn’t have jobs to go around. All
of our hard work paid off and we truly
were the greatest show on earth! We
want to thank our class for their posi

The senior class theme of “If They
Could See Me Now" was an eye
popper.They entered the amphithe
ater to the beat of the NC State March
ing Band. Every eye was on the group
that entered to perform a dazzling
baton tapping entrance routine. They
had already surprised everyone with a
small battalion at the parade.
Their top hats and pom-poms were
right in step with their broadway
theme. Later they served double duty
as rain hats.
The sweatshirts featured a roll of
film and gold stardust that tied to
gether all the themes of seniors’ past
Cornhuskin’s . The skit was a great
wrap up of their time spent here over
the past four years. It featured the talk

college years and what they meant to
The hog call once again highlighted
their broadway style as seniors dis
carded graduation robes in fevor of
the celebration mood of a chorus line.
Tall tale featured Kristen Tyvoll as
a great baseball hat that was mistreated
by ayoung man, but fortunately picked
up by a Meredith student. The base
ball hat went through many struggles,
but later transformed into a top hat.
Senior songs were a big hit, and
everyone enjoyed their rendition of
“I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing.”
JoAnna Grubbs and Anne McMillan,
senior Cornhuskin’ cochairs remind
their class that “No one will see a
senior hanging her head even after last
week. Cornhuskin’ is one part of the
Meredith Experience thoiigh we didn’t

at Meredith. Anne and 1 are proud to

After a break to dry out, the crowd

Art Center exhibits
By Shannon Batts
The doors to the Frankie G. Weems Gallery in the Gaddy Hamerick Art Center
opened to the public for the Annual Exhibition of North Carolinas Photographers
on Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m. These works will be on exhibit until December 3. This
annual exhibition was facilitated 15 years ago by Nona Short, a Meredith
professor in the art and foreign language departments.
The photographs in the exhibition were seleaed from a mixture of student,
amateur and professional photographers who are residents or native to North
Every year there is a different out-of-state juror. The person responsible for
selecting this year’s exhibits and award winning photographs is Martha Chahroudi,
an associate curator of photography from Philadelphia.
“I was impressed by the high quality of work by so many photographers from
all levels of experience and training, from students to professionals. Looking at
photographs today and seleaing those that you think others would like is not just
a process of recognizing beauty or of assessing craft, technique and presentation,
but of becoming acquainted with people and the force of their intelligence and
the quality of their feelings which reach out through the silver and dies to involve
other people in things that are important to their lives. The photographs in this
exhibition do this in ways that range from deep psychological investigations to
clever correspondences and juxtapositions to gentle, quiet nudges that point out
something freshly observed, ” said Chahroudi
The photographs in this years exhibition would be considered “alternative”
by many viewers.
The gallery is filled with pieces of different sizes, colors, shapes and genres.
“Not only is there traditional black and white, but also color, polaroids, polar
transfers, and other alternative processing methods represented in the show,”
said Mary Moore, student.
There are a few award winning pieces including “Hands of Buddha” by Wolf
Bolz, “The Black Dress Series#2” byjune Merlinoand “Homage to Barbara Crane”
by Jill Over.
This exhibition is being sponsored by The Photographic Arts Association, the
Meredith College Art Association and Ajnomoto USA Inc.
Maureen Banker, David Simonton and Mary Umstead and a host of others
made this exhibition possible.
The Gallery’s hours are weekdays from 9 a.m.To 5 p.m. and Saturday and
Sunday 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. It will be closed Nov. 23- 26.
