PREVIEW: The 8th Annual Faculty Exhibition

For the past three week, the Slusser Gallery in the Art and Architecture building  has displayed an exhibit of faculty art work. A variety of mediums, from ceramic to painting, sculpture to photography, video installation to fibers, The 8th Annual Faculty Exhibition publicizes current creative endeavors of professors at the art school. In anticipation of the closing reception, which is this Friday, I made a trip to North Campus to explore the display. I was highly impressed by the pieces. These professors are true professionals and their craft is cutting edge. Several captivating portrayals of nudes caught my attention, as well as curious ceramic sculptures of over sized honey combs, and a self-portrait series of the artist in a body brace that alludes to Frida Kahlo’s famous work.

Only a few more days to get in on this art action. To celebrate the creativity, be sure to get to the closing reception:
