Georgia Southern Betty Foy Sanders Department of Art presents 2018 Faculty Exhibition
The Georgia Southern University Betty Foy Sanders Department of Art will open its 2018-19 exhibition season with its biennial Faculty Exhibition. The exhibition will run concurrently at the Statesboro and Armstrong campuses in August.
The 2018 Faculty Exhibition will feature a range of interdisciplinary works of art, design and research, created by the art and design faculty on each campus.
“This is always one of my favorite exhibitions to put together,” said Jason Hoelscher, gallery director of the Center for Art and Theatre on the Statesboro campus. “The Georgia Southern faculty has such a wide range of ideas, approaches and expertise that it’s always exciting to see the end result. The fact that this year, for the first time, we will have an intermingling of work by the faculty from both campuses on both campuses, should make for a dynamite exhibition.”
Raymond Gaddy, gallery director for the Fine Arts Gallery on the Armstrong Campus, said the exhibition is exciting because of the collaboration.
“Any exhibition that involves numerous artists who come from a variety of disciplines and perspectives is fun and challenging to put together,” Gaddy said. “This years’ faculty exhibition will be all the more exciting as we’ll be bringing two talented groups together. It promises to be a vibrant collaboration and a stimulating start to the new year and new partnership.”
In Statesboro, the exhibition will last from Aug. 13 to Sept. 14 at the Center for Art and Theatre’s Contemporary and University galleries. A reception will be held on Wednesday, September 5 from 5 to 7 p.m.
In Savannah, the exhibition will be on view from Aug. 13 to 31 in the Fine Arts Gallery inside the Fine Arts Hall. A reception will be held Wednesday, August 29 from noon to 1:30 p.m.
All events are free and open to the public.
