University faculty to showcase art in biennial exhibition
(Feb. 20, 2013) For the first time, the University of North Georgia’s Faculty Biennial Exhibition features professors from the Oconee campus. The exhibit opens Feb. 27 in the Oconee campus gallery and opened Feb. 20 in the Roy C. Moore art gallery on UNG’s Gainesville campus.
Held every two years, The Faculty Biennial Exhibition is an opportunity for full-time and part-time faculty to display their own artwork. This show is a great opportunity for students to see the kind of art their professors are making, and is also an example to the public of the quality and range of art being produced in the art programs at UNG. The show features a wide array of artwork, including drawing, painting, ceramics, sculpture, printmaking, and video and mixed media works. The Oconee exhibition will feature works from Isabell Daniel, Stacy Koffman, and Kate Windley. Participating faculty for the Gainesville exhibition are John Amoss, Rebecca Brantley, Judson Duke, Jennifer Graff, Hyoungseok Kim, Jennifer Manzella, Erin McIntosh, Sydney Nettles-Coates, and Bebe Williams.
The Oconee exhibition will run from Feb. 27 to March 27, and a reception will be held at noon Feb. 28. The Oconee Campus Gallery is located in Faculty Center Building 700, near the bookstore.
The Gainesville exhibition opens on Feb. 20 and will run through March 20. A reception will be held at noon on Feb. 21 in the lobby outside the gallery. Both events are free and open to the public. The Roy C. Moore Art Gallery is located in the Gainesville campus’ Continuing Education/Performing Arts Building. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Wednesday and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday.
