Senior Profile: Kelsey Abell ’14

Kelsey Abell ’14 started college thinking she would become an elementary school teacher. But for her, part of the beauty of the liberal arts curriculum was that she discovered a talent and interest in art that she had not realized before.

Abell was one of several members of the Class of 2014 featured in Randolph magazine during her first semester at Randolph. We recently followed up with her to learn about her artwork and her new plans to become a college art professor. You can read that story here.

Much of Abell’s senior year was spent in the art studio, where she was preparing works for the senior art exhibition, which opened earlier this month and is on display at the Maier Museum of Art at Randolph College until Sunday. That was one of her favorite moments of the year.

“The exhibition was what I was working towards all year, and it was an absolute blast,” she said. “I got to share the experience with six other senior studio art majors and my family. It has been an amazing experience with a group of people I call family and amazing to see my own art work on the walls of a museum.”
