FALL FACULTY ART EXHIBIT NOW ON DISPLAY AT TODD GALLERY
MTSU’s Studio Faculty Artists Showcase Wide Array of Media Styles
(MURFREESBORO)—A variety of faculty-created works—from mixed-media installations, printmaking and sculptures to paintings and graphic-design imagery—are on display now through Sept. 4 in the Todd Gallery as part of the annual fall faculty art exhibition.
Each year, one-half of the university’s art faculty members are invited to present new work to the MTSU campus and community at large. The fall 2007 show features works by faculty members Barry Buxkamper, Kim Dummons, Sisavanh Phouthavong-Houghton, J. Seth Johnson, Christie Nuell, Marisa Recchia and Cindy Rehm, all of whom are members of the department’s studio faculty.
“The works to be seen represent a range of styles and media,” says Lon Nuell, gallery curator,”(including) digital imagery, printmaking, sculpture and painting, collographs and monoprints, and graphic design imagery.”
This year’s faculty exhibit contains from 24 to 30 pieces, said Nuell, who added that a reception for the participating artists will be held in the gallery lobby 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Aug. 29. The public is invited and encouraged to attend.
“The teaching faculty in the art department is made up of a highly talented group of professional artist-teachers who work in a wide range of media and whose expressive styles range from the representational to abstraction, with many exciting and challenging variations in between,” he noted.
• GALLERY HOURS: Located on the first floor of MTSU’s Todd Building, the Todd Gallery is open 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. weekdays. Admission is free and the exhibit is open to the public. Please note that the gallery will be closed on Labor Day, Sept. 3.
