The exhibition “Fruits of Light” by senior art student Alex Dupré can be viewed through Oct. 21 in the back gallery of the Art Building off of Wilson Drive on the campus of Stephen F. Austin State University.

NACOGDOCHES, Texas – Stephen F. Austin State University senior Alex Dupré will present a collection titled “Fruits of Light” as her Bachelor of Fine Arts exhibition to be on view Oct. 18 through 21 in the back gallery of the SFA Art Building off Wilson Drive on campus.

An exhibition reception is scheduled for 5 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 21, in the back gallery. Admission is free.

The collection illuminates a world only existing through the capture of time, according to Dupré.

“The cosmic and other worldly light painted in photo form cannot be seen with the naked eye and can only be captured in a long exposure image,” she said. “The wispy lines, painted with light, manipulate something real and merge the layers between the natural and the unnatural.

“This contrast between the familiar elements of nature and the unfamiliar setting created by colorful light is mesmerizing and intriguing,” she added.
