“CONJUNCTION” faculty exhibition…

Today was the opening of the “CONJUNCTION” exhibition of WVU faculty work made at Artists Image Resource.

This show originally was shown at AIR during the 2015 SECAC Conference in Pittsburgh. Faculty took time to talk about their projects during a gallery talk, below are pics of one of the galleries.

Here is a write up from the WVU Student paper: http://www.thedaonline.com/arts_and_entertainment/article_826dd234-c958-11e5-bc28-5f892d79a7b8.html

And a press release from WVU: http://wvutoday.wvu.edu/n/2016/01/15/mesaros-exhibition-to-feature-wvu-school-of-art-and-design-faculty-works

Since 2013, all fifteen WVU studio faculty traveled to Pittsburgh to work with the wonderful printmakers at AIR. Many of them had never done this kind of project before, so it was my job to get the process started, try to make sure that projects were continuing, and see this whole thing through to the end.

The work in this show is better than anything I could have expected to see, I am really proud of the way this all came together. Everything looks amazing in the Mesaros Galleries at WVU! Thanks again to all the faculty for playing along, this was a really fun night!

This was such a fun night, it was really great to be able to hear the faculty talk about their projects and their experiences at AIR. It was also great to be able to see my friends and colleagues interact with AIR, a place that I have such affection for. Great work everybody!
