2015 Biennial Faculty Art Exhibitionby FAU College of Arts and Letters | Tuesday, Nov 03, 2015
FAU's University Galleries presents the "2015 Biennial Faculty Art Exhibition," from Thursday, Nov. 12 through Saturday, Jan. 23, 2016 in the Schmidt Gallery, 777 Glades Road, Boca Raton campus. There will be an opening reception on Thursday, Nov. 12 at 6:30 p.m. and both the reception and opening are free and open to the public.
The exhibition features the works of 30 artists who teach in University programs including the Department of Visual Arts and Art History, the School of Communication and Multimedia Studies, the School of Architecture and two artists who work in the FAU Libraries. The artists work in a variety of media, including drawing, painting, sculpture, photography and video. Many of the artists have had solo and local, national, and international exhibitions, and many have had their works featured in major private and museum collections. There are also several past South Florida Cultural Consortium Fellowship winners in the exhibition.
"The Biennial faculty exhibition is a great opportunity for the public to see the excellent visual artists working at FAU," said Rod Faulds, director of University Galleries. "It's also so great and necessary for art students to see what their professors do."
The University Galleries are open Tuesdays through Fridays, 1 to 4 p.m. and Saturdays, 1 to 5 p.m. The Galleries also are open during other hours for class, school and group tours by appointment. The Schmidt Center Gallery is located in the Performing Arts building (No. 51) marked by a tall, white cubicle tower. Parking on the University campus is subject to strict regulations. Visitors should stop at the information booth on Glades Road and Northwest 10th Avenue to get a parking pass or park in metered spots.
The "2015 Biennial Faculty Art Exhibition" is produced in collaboration with the Department of Visual Arts and Art History. The University Galleries exhibition and education programs are supported in part by the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County, R.A. Ritter Foundation, Beatrice Cummings Mayer and individual contributors. Museum Education programs are made possible by the Kaye Endowment for Arts Integration.
