"There was a great show last year after a study abroad class in Italy where a large group of students and the painting faculty showed paintings they had done there. It was interesting to see what everyone was doing as a painter. We want this show to be like that, for the community to see what students are up to at the University of South Carolina and to encourage a dialogue and interest in supporting young artists." - Jaime Morgan, University Painting Society Secretary.
