Current Exhibition

A Conversation with Place and Being, curated by Sara Straussberger, Jewel Birdsong Scholarship recipient.

The exhibit, A Conversation with Place and Being, ranges from gestural figure drawing to meticulous landscape etching, and is arranged in two groupings. One side of the exhibit is comprised of representations of the individual - images and sculptures that focus on some aspect of the human figure. The other includes environmental landscapes - the place in which an individual exists and expresses as a part of oneself.

The Jewel Birdsong Art Collection Scholarship is curatorial scholarship that allows a select student the distinct privilege of working directly with the APSU Permanent Art Collection to curate and install a dynamic and engaging exhibition in the Mabel Larson Gallery.  This year's recipient, Sara Straussberger, is a BFA student in the Department of Art and Design and a philosophical studies minor.

This exhibit will be on view through May 2016.
