PropstTribute-14112-EjpgFive framed pieces are on display in the Multicultural Resource Center at UNCG. Two women are featured in each.

“My work is meant to be a tribute to Joanne Smart Drane and Bettye Tillman, the first two African American women to graduate from UNCG,” Rachel Propst said.

Propst, who graduated last year from UNCG with a BFA degree in design, had been a student off and on since 2005. She is now building up a body of work as she considers applying for a master’s program.

The five works are not regular prints, she explained. She created them through a photographic printing process called cyanotype, where ultraviolet light creates the image. Art faculty member Leah Sobsey introduced her to the process.
