Mobile, Ala. – The works of Pier Hardin, an art, literature and creative writing teacher at UMS-Wright Preparatory School, will be on display in the Eichold Gallery at Spring Hill College Nov. 4 – Dec. 4, 2009. Hardin will present insights to her work at an opening reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 5. The exhibit is free and open to the public.

“Nocturnal Phantasies” will take viewers into an enchanted plant kingdom with a brilliant low-keyed palette and intricate patterns. The exhibit serves as the culminating project for Hardin’s Master of Liberal Arts degree with a concentration in fine art.

A graduate of the University of Alabama, Hardin has served on the executive committees of the Mobile Historic Development Commission, the Mobile Tree Commission, and Streetscapes. She has served on the faculty at UMS-Wright for more than 20 years and has taught summer classes at the Mobile Museum of Art.

The Master of Liberal Arts program at Spring Hill offers master’s level preparation with three traditional objects of liberal arts education: an appreciation of students’ intellectual and cultural heritage; the intellectual breadth appropriate to participants and leaders in public life; and an appreciation of diverse cultural traditions. Concentrations available within the MLA include: literature, fine arts, history and social science, and leadership and ethics. Graduate Certificates in Leadership and Ethics and in Studio Art are also available through the program.

Dr. Alex Landi, the MLA program director, will also be in attendance to provide an overview of the MLA program. For more information about the MLA program, contact the office of Graduate Studies at (251) 380-3094 or visit www.shc.edu/mla.
