NMU student’s work in exhibit

MARQUETTE – Northern Michigan university student Alyssa Moy is among 22 students from Michigan’s public universities selected to have works displayed in the Michigan House’s annual “Art in the House” exhibit.

She is an illustration and metalsmithing major of Plainfield, Ill. Her featured piece is an illustration in graphite titled “Late Night Hours.”

Moy described it as a snapshot of what a fashion designer’s desk might look like, with scattered objects such as a sketchbook, a fashion magazine with adhesive notes protruding from several pages, and ribbon and buttons strewn about.

“I purposely made it appear chaotic at first glance, but from that chaotic environment, fantastic creations can be born,” Moy said. “I’m really excited to have my work displayed for the public. Some people don’t realize how much work is involved in being an art major, so it’s nice to see that recognized. It’s easy to submit a piece, but to actually have it selected is completely different. I’m greatly honored.

“Late Night Hours” and the other student art pieces are showcased in the Anderson House Office Building in Lansing.
