Reception for “The Department of Art and Design Faculty Exhibition” is Friday

October 1, 2015

Exploring concepts of art that range from elements of art to social crisis, the University Art Gallery's latest exhibit is inspiring and moving. One artist draws us into a firsthand look at the Syrian Refugee Crisis while another offers a unique look at Indiana State University campus through photography.

"The Department of Art and Design Faculty Exhibition" is on display Oct. 2-25 and offers a great opportunity to see the most current work of the art and design faculty.

This diverse exhibit displays the creative and beautiful work of art and design faculty Soulaf Abas, SAMy Anderson, Chuck Armstrong, Chester Burton, Kira Kalondy, Fran Lattanzio, Nancy Nichols-Pethick, Brad Venable, Sala Wong and Wanda Wilkey.

Their work incorporates every medium of studio art from drawings, photography, ceramics, video, wood sculpture, to graphic design. A reception to meet the faculty and discuss their work is set for 4-6 p.m. Oct. 2.

Both the exhibition and reception are free and open to the public. The University Art Gallery is located in the Landini Center for Performing and Fine Arts at the corner of Seventh and Chestnut streets. Gallery hours are 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday-Friday and 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Thursday.

Free group tours are available upon request. For more information, call Grace Flesher at 812-237-3720.
