“Blended Backgrounds” Senior Art Exhibit to Presented at UMHB


The UMHB College of Visual and Performing Arts presents the work of four graduating art majors in an exhibit titled “Blended Backgrounds”.  The works of art displayed will be paintings, graphic design, and children’s book illustration.  The show in the Baugh Center for the Visual Arts at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor is slated for November 30 through December 8, 2017. A public reception is planned for Friday, December 8 from 3:00 to 4:30 p.m. 

The four candidates for the Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree are Emily Fletcher from Corsicana, TX, Erin Dona from Bonham, TX, Maria Ramos from Puerto Rico, and Callie Milligan from Austin, TX.

 “The Adventures of C.P. and Archie,” is a children’s book created by artist Emily Fletcher. The book contains twenty-two pages of hand drawn images telling the story of an adventurous little boy and his orangutan companion, Readers will re-live a little bit of their own childhood through the “monkey business” they get into. 

Erin Dona, from Bonham, Texas exhibits a series of portraits, including a self-portrait, of immediate family members using acrylic on plywood, and utilizing string on each painting to interconnect them with each other and beyond.

Maria Ramos presents introspective cultural reflections based on her home in Puerto Rico. She creates digital paintings and mixed media books about local folklore where stories unfold among the patterns of exotic plants and architectural structures.

Callie Millegan’s oil paintings use surrealistic symbols and spaces to represent memories and personal growth from her childhood. Her expressions reflect certain situations in her upbringing where her resistance to conform led to becoming her own person.

Senior receiving an art degree at UMHB are required to present a polished cohesive gallery exhibit with their best work and defend their art thesis before a faculty committee.  This rigorous capstone experience prepares students for professional career aspirations as artists in the workforce, or for the further graduate studies in the visual arts. 

Baugh Center for the Visual Arts Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.  For more information visit or contact Hershall Seals at
