Artwork by senior art major Haley Lademann will be on display in Shorter University’s Arnold Art Gallery through Friday, April 29. The exhibit features digital graphic portraits of members of the Lady Hawks women’s soccer team, on which Lademann was a goalkeeper. She will graduate on May 6 with both a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Digital Art and a Bachelor of Science in Computer Information Systems.

“Haley has put together a delightful show of conceptual digital graphic portraits she made of each of her soccer teammates,” said Kelly Mills, director of the Arnold Art Gallery and assistant professor of art at Shorter University. “Haley is completing a double degree – not just a double major – with a BFA in Art and a BS in Computer Information Systems. She has attended Shorter on a soccer scholarship.”
A native of Flagler Beach, Fla., Haley compiled the exhibition as a requirement for her major in art. “The work represents me as an artist because of many aspects. Since my two degrees are Fine Arts and Computer Information Systems, digital art is the best of both worlds. The work in the exhibit is comprised of each one of my soccer teammates as the subject matter.
“Within my artwork, I tend to use my own photography instead of using stock images off the internet, which makes it personal and overall more meaningful. Many of the artworks represent a style or artist from history, but I still portray my own personal rendition of it.”
The Arnold Art Gallery is open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and is located inside the Minor Fine Arts Building on Shorter’s Rome campus.
