MSU Art and Design Faculty Exhibition open through Oct. 11

The main gallery in the Claypool-Young Art Building at Morehead State University will host the 2017 Annual MSU Art and Design Faculty Exhibition, Sept. 13 through Oct. 11.

An opening reception will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 13, from 5-7 p.m. with complimentary refreshments and live music. The reception is free and open to the public.

The annual event showcases the artworks of MSU art and design faculty. Reflecting the strength and diversity of the Department of Art and Design's programs and instruction, the show features a wide range of media and techniques. Paintings, drawings, photography, computer generated imagery, textiles, as well as mixed media and ceramic works will be on display.

The Claypool-Young Art Gallery is an educational resource of the department and the University as a whole; the faculty exhibition is an embodiment of the gallery’s mission. Both as a venue for instruction and as a means to exhibit work to the University and community, the exhibition is possibly the most anticipated show of the year.

Participants include: Jenny Bell, Maria Blevins, Christopher Field, Robert Franzini, Deeno Golding, James Henson, Elizabeth Mesa-Gaido, Gary Mesa-Gaido, Robyn Moore, Helen Otterson, Jennifer A. Reis and Adam Yungbluth.

In association with the exhibition, there will be an Art Faculty Forum on Wednesday, Sept. 20, from 11 a.m. until noon. Exhibiting art instructors will be on hand to discuss their work and to field questions.

The art gallery features contemporary art for MSU’s community as well as the University’s service region.

Programming support in part comes from the Buckner and Sally S. Hinkle Endowment for Humanities, Morehead State Public Radio, Corporation for Public Broadcasting and the Caudill College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences.

The gallery is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. or by appointment, and is free and open to the public. Parking is available on Main Street, directly behind the Claypool-Young Art Building, and across campus after 5 p.m.
