SUU's Teaching Artisans showcase TalentJanuary 08, 2014
A spectacular showcase of SUU’s resident artists—Department of Art and Design faculty—will be hanging on the walls of the Braithwaite Gallery for the next five weeks in the annual Art and Design Faculty Exhibition.
SUU art and design faculty members are all accomplished artists who have exhibited in museums and galleries nationally and internationally.
Opening Thursday, January 9, at 7 p.m., the retrospective will provide a truly engaging showcase of diverse medium, including photography, painting, ceramics, drawing, graphic design, sculpture, quilt art, watercolors and much more. Featured artists include Elayna Clegg, Rheana Gardner, Jessica Gerlach, Yidan Guo, Susan Harris, Jeffrey Hanson, Brian Hoover, Andrew Marvick, Jeremias Paul, Christopher Ralphs, Deborah K. Snider, JungYun Son, Ron Spears, Benjamin Sowards, Carrie Trenholm and Russell Wrankle.
This year's exhibition spotlights the creativity of a truly gifted collective of artisans who are also all inspiring educators, according to Art and Design Chair Eric Brown.
Brown and his faculty are hopeful the exhibit will "serve to inspire and encourage students to explore their own potential."
The Art and Design Faculty Exhibition will run in the Braithwaite through Saturday, February 15. The gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday from noon to 7 p.m. Admission is free and open to the general public.
