SHSU art faculty will showcase the work they do outside of the classroom during the 53rd annual faculty art exhibit, in the Gaddis Geeslin Gallery beginning Jan. 28.
The exhibit will feature art by 12 professors, including Jack Barnosky, Kate Borcherding, Chuck Drumm, Becky Finley, Michael Henderson, Taehee Kim, Cynthia Reid, Tony Shipp, Annie Strader, Anthony Watkins, Matt Weedman and Willie Williams.
They will present a variety of media completed over the past two years, including animation, design, sculpture, video, painting, printmaking and photography.
“As with professors in all areas of the university our professional research is something that is critical to our success as teachers,” said Strader, an assistant professor of art and 3G committee chair. “Being professionally active and producing and exhibiting work that is critically engaged with the current dialogue in our field supports our teaching in the classroom.
“It's an exciting opportunity for students to experience and have dialogue with their faculty about their research,” she said. “It’s important for students to experience art first hand and this exhibit provides access to faculty work that might otherwise only be exhibited in galleries, museums and art centers outside of Huntsville.”
A reception for the exhibit, which will be in the Gaddis Geeslin Gallery through Feb. 14, will be held on Jan. 31, from 6-7 p.m. in the 3G, located in Art Building FRoom 101.
