Angels off to a good
By Allison Carter
The Meredith College basketball team has started off the season with a 4:2
record with one game to go before the Christmas break. The basketball team won
against Bennett College, North Carolina Weslyean, Greensboro College and
Methodist College. The team has only lost to Randolph-Macon and Ferrum.
The team itself has no senior players, but it does have five freshman players.
Wendy Cooper, a freshman, says, “I really love the whole team. Everyone is great.
As a freshman 1 feel relaxed and not as scared as 1 could."
“1 am really excited about our young team and pleased about how we have
played so far,” said Veronica King, junior
Coach Carl Hatchell agrees when he says, “We have played very good at times
and not so good at times, but that is to be expected with a inexperienced team.
As we gain experience and begin to except our youthful mistakes, we have the
potential to be a very strong team.”
The team has their last game at home before the break on Wednesday,
December 6th at 7 p.m. There will be no practices over the holiday and the team
will reconvene when school reopens in January. The first game of the new year
will be on January 13.
Coach Hatchell encourages all students to come to the games because they are
upbeat and full of excitement. Mandy Litton went to a recent game here on
campus and says, “They work good together as a team. They also all seem to have
a positive attitude.”

whole project to that design class, and
students in the art department have
volunteered to help us hang the ex
hibit and host visiting students during
the opening weekend. ”
The Office of College Communica
tions helped them with publicity and
showed them how to put together the
press kit that was sent to each of the
Every college was asked to submit
slides of each work as well as a biogra
phy and statement from each artist.
This information will go into the cata
log and will be put in a notebook for
gallery visitors- to peruse. Evans and
Reid have spent the last three months
collecting il of the information and
making sure it is complete.
The individual colleges are respon-.
sible for shipping their artwork to
Meredith. Evans and Reid seldom know
for sure when something will be deliv
ered. “Sometimes we get a phone call
saying ‘we’ll be there at twelve, ’ ” Evans
laughed, “then one of us has to hustle
over to meet the car, the van, or what
ever the college has sent.”
Once the artwork is delivered, they
have to find a place to store it. “We’ve
almost filled the attic in the art build
ing and every other place we can find, ”
Evans and Reid say one of the hard
est tasks was find a speaker for the
opening reception because they had
no idea of howto go about it. They are
pleased with the results of their quest.
Terrie Sultan, curator of contempo
rary art at the Corcoran Gallery in
Washington, D.C., will speak at 1 p.m.
on opening day. Evans said that Sultan
is known in the art world for her ability
to spot new talent, and her speech will
focus on what people are looking for
in the art community and how stu
dents can market themselves.
Funding the show has been an on
going concern. Bailey has earmarked
donations to the art department for
the exhibit, and Evans and Reid hope
the sale of the exhibition posters will
raise additional funds.
Because there is no budget for ad
vertising, they are relying on the press
releases sent to local newspapers and
Southern Living magazine and hoping
the exhibit will get some mention.
“ Even if we get only two lines in South
ern Living, it will be great, ” Evans said.
Notice that the exhibit is labeled
“the first annual...” Evans and Reid are
hoping that each participating school
will take its turn in hosting the show,
and three colleges have already ex
pressed interest in coordinating next
What do Evans and Reid hope to
gain from their efforts? A strengthen
ing of the art community at Meredith is
one result they’d like to see. “People
complain that the art department is
dead on the weekends,” Evans said,
“and students stay in their rooms to
work on their projects.” She added,
“we want to get them out of their
rooms and getthem woiking together. ”
Evans noted there is no club or
honorary art organization at Meredith,
and she’d like to see that change. She
stated, “we have the largest and best
art department of any Southeastern
women’s college,” and she firmly be
lieves Meredith should capitalize on
this strength and find some way of
bringing artists together.
Participating schools include
Meredith, Agnes Scott College, Brenau
University Women’s College,
Randolph-Macon Women’s College,
Hollins College, Columbia College,
Converse College, Salem College and
Sweet Briar College. Evans and Reid
are pleased that many of the artists will
be in attendance on opening day.
Works to be shown by Meredith
students were selected by members of
the art department faculty. Artists
whose work was chosen are Betty
Crenshaw, Marcie Gaines, Margaret
Hilpert, Karen Malinofski, Katherine
Maris, Lee Moore, Rachel Nicholson,
Kathy Pierce and Madelon Ziegler.
Evans is surprised at how much
research and hard work has been re
quired to bring her idea to fruition.
Above all, Evans said, “this show is for
the students, to showcase their talent
and bring them together. We want to
give them a chance to talk and share
ideas, and at the same time create an
arts community in the South for col
