Renowned artist Synthia SAINT JAMES unveiled a signature piece she painted for Saint Augustine's University on Friday, October 21. The unveiling was part of an exhibit of SAINT JAMES' work in the Seby Jones Art Gallery.
SAINT JAMES' piece, entitled "Elevation," depicts graduating students reaching for the sky as they are backed by President Dianne Boardley Suber, their families and future Falcons.
"This has been a total labor of love," SAINT JAMES said. "The art will always be a part of Saint Augustine's University."
The University will be able to use the signature piece on merchandise to raise money for the institution.
"When (SAINT JAMES) indicated she was creating a signature piece for Saint Augustine's University, I was thrilled," Suber said. "She has made her mark on this campus, and we are delighted to call her kin."
