Faculty 2012-13 Exhibition
The 2012-2013 Betty Foy Sanders Department of Art Faculty Exhibition opened on Monday in Georgia Southern University’s Contemporary Gallery located in the Center for Art & Theatre. The exhibition is on display until December 14, 2012. The department will host an artist’s reception on November 30th from 5-7 p.m. at the Center for Art & Theatre. Here, visitors will also have the opportunity to meet and discuss art with faculty at the BFSDoArt.
This year the BFSDoArt welcomes two new faculty members, Jeff Schmuki and Amy Fix, who will be exhibiting alongside Jessica Burke, Elsie Hill, Jessica Hines, Derek Larson, Christina Lemon, Santanu Majumdar, Julie McGuire, Marc Mitchell, Hans Mortensen, Marc Moulton, Onyile B. Onyile, Ed Rushton, Leigh Thomson and Pat Walker.
These exhibitions feature the work of 16 renowned faculty in all disciplines and reflects each artist’s academic specialty as well as their individual endeavors. “Many of these artists are unique because they spend a great deal of time and energy with their students. Yet, they still manage to continue their own studio practice and produce great work,” said Gallery Director, Marc Mitchell. “Many of our faculty members are known both locally and nationally. Having an exhibition such as this allows us to highlight their artistic achievements. In addition, it is a fantastic way for both students and the local community to see all of the works in one space.”
