Join us this Friday for Assembly Required: Pittsburg State University Department of Art Faculty Exhibition

Exhibition Dates:November 18, 2014 - January 23, 2015


Reception:
November 21, 2014 4:00-6:00 pm




Nine artists working in a wide range of media including painting, ceramics, mixed-media and metals will display recently created works, some on view for the first time, in the University Gallery of Porter Hall from the 18th of November, 2014 through the 23rd of January, 2015.

There will be a reception to meet the artists on the 21st of November from 4pm – 6pm.

The purpose of this exhibition is to celebrate Pittsburg State University’s Department of Art faculty as professional working artists and to recognize the many routes they have taken to come together as a group to inspire students toward what is often difficult to communicate — self-discovery, imagination and tenacity. The exhibition’s title Assembly Required reflects this thought and also stems from an artist’s need to critically realize the ideas he/she wants to express through art.

Beyond the importance of the show itself, it is of note for another reason. The 2014 Assembly Required Faculty Exhibition will be the last of the biannual faculty exhibitions to be hosted in the University Gallery in Porter Hall.

The next Faculty Exhibition will be in the large gallery space located in the Bicknell Family Center for the Arts. Department of Art Chairperson Rhona McBain sees the last faculty show in Porter Hall as an opportunity to celebrate PSU and community support of the arts, “It is something of which to be proud. We have always loved having the Faculty Exhibition in the gallery located where we teach our students and make artwork. But we are so excited about looking toward the future. We have a wonderful new gallery space coming in the Bicknell Family Center for the Arts, we have wonderful students and alumni that are making that space possible.”


The artists represented in the exhibition include: S. Portico Bowman, Emmalyn Gennis, Malcolm E. Kucharski, Janet Lewis, Josie Mai, Rhona McBain, Deann Norris, James Oliver, and Marjorie Schick.
