FGCU Hosts Third Annual Art Faculty and Staff Exhibition June 7 to Aug. 30
FORT MYERS, FL - Florida Gulf Coast University Art Gallery hosts its third annual Art Faculty and Staff Exhibition Thursday, June 7 to Thursday, Aug. 30. The upcoming show will display a variety of artwork presented by faculty and staff members of FGCU's art department. An opening reception will be held 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday, June 7 at the Arts Complex art gallery at FGCU. A closing reception will be held 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 30. Admission is free and open to the general public.
The faculty exhibition features an array of works from art faculty and staff members in the form of ceramics, sculpture, photography, paintings and printmaking.
"We have a relatively small department, yet within the core group of individuals that interact with the students, we have artists that concentrate on traditional and non-traditional media and subjects from ceramic to digital, from cubist and realist influences to conceptual and social narratives," said Gallery Director Scott Snyder.
"The diverse makeup of the university's art department is reflected in this show, as the works being presented encompass the various conceptual ideas and artistic approaches that not only influence the artists themselves, but are contributing factors in their methods of teaching."
Participating artists include:
Beth Everhart, Adjunct Professor
Patricia Fay, Associate Professor
Geoff Hamel, Adjunct Professor
Morgan Paine, Associate Professor
