MVC Art Student to Host Senior ExhibitApril 29th, 2014 - May 3rd, 2014
MVC Senior Dakota Day-Herrell, of the College’s visual arts department, will host a solo art exhibition entitled “The Silent Strength.” The show, located in Baity Hall’s Vern Nestor Gallery, will be on display April 29- May 3.
An opening reception for the collection will be held from 5-8 p.m., April 28 at Stone Hedge Golf Club, located at 2760 Cypress Drive, Marshall, Missouri. The reception is free and open to the public.
“The Silent Strength” is a multi-media show featuring photography, drawing and printmaking. Her main focus when developing the show was assessing the human and the limits of its strength.
“The body is a raw element. It is something that is with you from the day you are born, but yet we never know how far we can push it. The body can often do things we never imagine; one just needs to be willing to push the body to the extreme. I wanted to capture this strength in the most pure element there is, which is within us,” Day-Herrell said.
Dakota Day-Herrell was born and raised in North Kansas. In 2006 her family moved to the Lake of the Ozarks. Day-Herrell graduated from Camdenton High School, with honors, in 2009. She is currently finishing up her bachelor of fine arts in studio art at Missouri Valley College with intent to graduate this May. She is currently employed by Stone Hedge Golf Club and by the Hardeman School District as an art teacher.
