Kappa Pi supports 2020 “Hotter ‘N Hell” exhibition

Northwestern State University’s chapter of Kappa Pi International Art Honor Society donated more than $1,000 to Friends of Hanchey to support promotion of “Hotter ‘N Hell,” a national juried collegiate art exhibition that will feature art created with the use of heat and fire.

Kappa Pi raised funds by raffling a quilt pieced together from vintage NSU t-shirts.

“’Hotter ‘N Hell’ will feature a national juried exhibition of pyrotechnical art and include a one-day event we are calling the, Hotter ‘N Hell Happening, that will be the week of July 4, 2020,” said Phyllis Lear, professor art and coordinator of the show. “The’ Hotter ‘N Hell’ Art Exhibition will showcase a juried collegiate art exhibition from across the United States that features fire and/or heat during production or as an element of each work of art.” Creations by artists who work with glass, ceramics, bronze, metal sculpture and other mediums will be featured.

“NSU’s Department of Fine and Graphic Art will host the exhibition in Orville Hanchey Gallery April 20 through August 20, 2020, the hottest months in Demonland,” Lear said.

NSU Artist James Borders will be juror for the exhibition.
