Bi-annual Faculty Exhibition
May 6-June 26, 2011
The Rosemary Berel and Harry L. Crisp II Museum at Southeast Missouri State University will present the Bi-annual Art Faculty Exhibition, a showing of pieces created by the talented professional artists of the visual arts department, beginning Friday, May 6.
The museum will host a reception from 4 to 8 p.m. on Friday, May 6, to view this diverse and accomplished collection of work. The exhibit will remain on display through June 26.
The Bi-annual Art Faculty Exhibition includes a broad sampling of media that encompasses a wide range of studio practices. Ceramic, paints, drawings, processes of printmaking, sculpture and digital technology are only some of the materials and techniques used by the artist-teachers.
The content and subject matter in this exhibition is as varied as the material choices. Explored are the topics of identity through art, epic and evolving personal narratives and the process of transforming a surrounding reality into metaphor. This manner of intellectual investigation coupled with skillful material exploration produces accomplished, thoughtful works of art and encourages both the viewer and the artist to continue to nurture the creative process.
The Crisp Museum is located in the Cultural Arts Center at River Campus, 518 S. Fountain St., Cape Girardeau, Missouri. Museum hours Tues.-Fri.: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., weekends: 1 to 4 p.m. Summer hours: May 16-Aug. 21 museum closes at 4 p.m. For additional information email email@example.com or call (573) 651-2260.
