Reception for 'In Process' - Art and Design Faculty Exhibition: March 3
A reception with the artists will take place in the Upton Hall lobby on Thursday, March 3, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. Refreshments will be served, and all are welcome.
As a twist on our traditional faculty exhibition, this year we are highlighting the diverse processes of our art and design faculty. In observing finished artwork, the viewer usually only sees an end result. The artist's creative process—the thought, labor, and love that went into creating a piece—is not always transparent. Through this unique exhibition, we lean into the Czurles-Nelson Gallery as a teaching space and show our students and visitors how our diverse creative processes are anything but linear. A work and concept does not spring into being but is the end result of a labor of love and passion for what we do and who we are as artists.
Displayed here are concepts or samples that are perhaps temporarily abandoned and picked up again: tools, material explorations, or finished work that is surrounded by all the samples and drawings that lead up to its creation. The exhibition demonstrates how every work is the culmination of scholarly research, extended periods of brainstorming, and trial and error — all accomplished between the duties of teaching and service.
The gallery’s spring hours are
- Monday: 8:30 a.m.–4:00 p.m.,
- Tuesday: 8:00–10:30 a.m. and noon–1:30 p.m.,
- Wednesday: 8:00 a.m.–3:00 p.m.,
- Thursday: 8:00–10:30 a.m. and noon–1:30 p.m.,
- Friday: 8:00–11:00 a.m. and noon–4:00 p.m.
