Circling Round Featured Artist: Haley Canter

Haley Canter has been selected as a featured artist in the Miami University Art Museum 2020 Student response Exhibition! Canter is a senior studio art major at Miami from Middletown-Madison, Ohio. She chose Miami because both of her parents attended. While at Miami, she is a member of the visual arts club. Canter loves portrait photography and hopes to own her own photography business someday.

Her featured artwork, Sunday Morning, was inspired by memories of her parents making her and her sister homemade blueberry pancakes every Sunday morning when they lived at home.  

This year’s SRE topic was Circling ‘Round, where students thought about what a circle meant to them and how they might interpret it in art. Nearly 100 submissions were received. 32 works by 58 students were chosen to be featured in the Spring 2020 exhibition. As a juried exhibition, all works were selected through a formal process by a committee.

The exhibition will open Tuesday, January 28 and will remain through alumni weekend, closing on June 13. Voting will be open until April 11, 2020. There will be an artist celebration and award ceremony held on April 14, 2020, from 6 to 8 PM where three works will be awarded prizes totaling over $800. The awards are sponsored by the Art Museum Membership Association.

Come see Haley Canter’s artwork along with the rest of the student response exhibition, Circling ‘Round, at the Miami University Art Museum!
