A variety of artwork from traditional 2-D and 3-D sculptures, to computer-based pieces fill the Mary Elizabeth Dee Shaw Gallery in the Kimball Visual Arts Building for the Biennial Faculty Exhibition. The exhibition features art from 31 artists who work in the Department of Visual Art and Design. Professors from the art department, including adjunct and art history instructors are encouraged to participate and submit at least one piece.
Artists used things such as branches to make more of a mother nature feel, electricity to bring light to the show, some hand drawings and paintings, and big and small pieces. There was even an art piece that I mistook for a person! What I thought was a person was actually a full-sized model of a female body that appeared to be made out of plaster, and stands in the middle of the room. I wanted to touch it to see what material it was made of, but I didn’t want to knock it over, and of course I know not to touch art.
The exhibit ends on Nov. 15, so there is still plenty of time to get in and see the creativity of WSU’s faculty, and it’s free.
