Visual Arts professors show off their skills
If you’ve walked through the Edwards Building recently you may have seen some postcards that read “Spring 2018 Faculty Triennial.” That’s because the Faculty Triennial is underway! The Triennial is a showcase of faculty artwork and is located in the Rebecca Randall Bryan Art Gallery.
The Bryan Art Gallery, located in the Edwards Building, has held many different exhibitions over the years from students to local artists. As well as work that features a broad range from both historic and contemporary to crafts and local interest. The Gallery website notes that “the Gallery features art forms and traditions in both fine arts and decorative arts. “
The Gallery presents six to eight exhibitions annually, showcasing art from the Eastern United States. The Bryan Art Gallery strives to “represent and serve a broad range of audiences and cultures” to keep all audiences entertained.
This year’s Triennial is showcasing work from CCU’s current Visual Arts and Graphic Design faculty. Artwork displayed includes work from faculty members, such as Jim Arendt, Brian “Cat” Taylor, Maura Kenny, and many others.
Students on campus say they love seeing professor work because it gives them an opportunity to know their professor outside of class.
“It’s a great chance to see faculties work in their profession and what they focus on professionally," said art student Devann Donovan. "How often do you get a taste of seeing your instructors in their natural habitat? Doing what they’re teaching you to do."
The exhibition will be showcased from January 15 to February 15. On January 18, the exhibition will hold an official grand opening ceremony from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. and will include light refreshments. The Exhibition is free and open to the public.
