“Go Figure” Says Artist Forrest Worley in Art Exhibition That Begins December 6

Athens, W.Va. - Concord University senior Forrest Worley will be showcasing his artwork in the Arthur Butcher Gallery of the Alexander Fine Arts Center December 6 through December 15. A reception will be held Friday, December 10, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., and the public is invited to attend.

Forrest Worley is from Blacksburg, Va., and is majoring in graphic design. His art exhibition features a collection of characters and logos. The show title, “Go Figure,” was chosen because it relates to his work and all the figures that are incorporated in the graphic presentations. After graduating from Concord, he hopes to attend graduate school and then achieve a career in character design.

Forrest shared these words when describing his exhibit: “The essence of every piece I’ve done, whether a figure, lettering, or icon is the line, I use lines that are instantly recognizable to those familiar with them. The lines give everything to the piece. They define the shape, and the shape enhances the lines. Shading and color for me are only flourishes; the line is what it’s all about.”

Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. through 4 p.m.
