Artist Callie Poehlein said she takes a lot of time to figure out what to do with a piece. The work pictured in front of her is no different and features painted panels of acrylic glass. She said she wanted to do a piece that people would have to interact with to see all of it. The panels are meant to be displayed in a row, but can be slid from side to side to examine individually or any combination of multiple panels. The piece was meant for “expressing myself and showing who I am, but actually showing layers of myself,” Poehlein said.

PERRY COUNTY – Perry County native Callie Poehlein has seen success as an art student, evolving in her creativity like one of her award-winning pieces.

She wasn’t always set on art for a career path. In high school, she was set on going into a science field, but upon taking a class as a senior, art became her pursuit. “I realized I was pretty good at it,” she said.

She is now majoring in studio art with a 2-dimensional emphasis.
