Austin Peay art faculty to present works during ‘Art + Design Faculty Triennial’
(Posted Sept. 28, 2020)
The New Gallery, with support from The Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts and the Department of Art + Design, is pleased to present the Art + Design Faculty Triennial to continue an exciting 2020-2021 exhibition season.
“The Faculty Triennial is an exhibition that showcases the work of our talented faculty that teach within the department of Art + Design,” said Michael Dickins, curator and director of The New Gallery.
“All of our professors are also professional artists who exhibit their work in galleries and museums all over the globe, so The New Gallery hosts this exhibition every three years to give the students and community an opportunity to view this work together in one space. This exhibition reflects the talent, craftsmanship and dialogue that we also expect of our students and represents the variety of media that we teach here at APSU.”
The triennial opens Sept. 28 and ends Oct. 23. To kick off the exhibition, a public projection performance by artist Barry Jones and collaborator Andrea Spofford will take place 7-9 p.m. Monday, Sept. 28, in the Arts Quad, behind the Art + Design building. Bring a lawn chair. Social distancing will be practiced.
The faculty presenting work in this exhibition are Amirmasoud Agharebparast, Alex Blau, Rickey Bump, Rachel Bush, Paul Collins, Chalet Comellas-Baker, Michael Dickins, McLean Fahnestock, Jessica Fife, Patrick Gosnell, Virginia Griswold, Barry Jones with Andrea Spofford, Wansoo Kim, Scott Raymond, Billy Renkl, Evie Richner, Dr. Tamara Smithers, Patrick Vincent, David Walker and Cailyn Wilson.
A 360º virtual walkthrough video will accompany this exhibition for those who wish to view the work from the safety of their homes. The video can be found on The New Gallery’s webpage and can be accessed via www.apsu.edu/art-design.
The exhibit opens Monday, Sept. 28, at The New Gallery, located in the Art + Design building on the Austin Peay campus. The virtual experience will remain available indefinitely.
