Opening today in the Visual Arts Center (VAC) Gallery is a show of works created by faculty from the MSU College of Architecture, Art and Design.

Visitors to the gallery will see the diverse styles of the artists that include samples of painting, sculpture, photography, furniture design, graphic design, fiber art and printmaking. The works range from representational images depicting figures and portraits to explorations of abstract forms, colors, text and shapes.

Many students in the Department of Art look forward to the faculty exhibit, which typically occurs every other year, as it allows them to see the work and research of their professors.

The 19 faculty and staff artists represented are Chad Anderson, Peter Bain, Alex Bostic, Adrienne Callander, Neil Callendar, Brent Funderburk, Marita Gootee, Rowan Haug, Jeffery Haupt, Jude Landry, Dominic Lippillo, Robert Long, Gregory Martin, Tim McCourt, Soon Ee Ngoh, Jamie Mixon, Linda Sekinger, Jake Weigel and Jim West.

Many of the pieces in the show have won awards or have been part of juried exhibitions. For example, Jamie Mixon’s concert poster for Pink created for the Verizon Arena won an Award of Excellence from the professional creative journal Communication Arts; Jude Landry’s design of The United States of America for a T-shirt print also received recognition from Communication Arts and is represented in the gallery show as a wood cut; Marita Gootee’s “DollarTree Rex,” a cyanotype photogram of a toy purchased from a DollarTree store, recently exhibited at Lightbox Photographic Gallery in Astoria, Ore.

There will be a reception for the show at the VAC Gallery on Thurs., Feb. 20 from 5 –7 p.m. The reception is free and open to the public.

The Visual Arts Center Gallery is located at 808 University Drive. Hours of operation: Tuesday–Friday, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., and Saturday 2 – 4p.m. For more information please call 662-325-2970.

DUPREE | Alex Bostic

Associate Professor Alex Bostic’s painting, DUPREE, is part of the exhibition, Artists by Artists.

The exhibition draws on the historical precedent of artists portraying fellow artists in works ranging from loose sketches to formal portraits.  These works were normally kept in the personal collections of the artists and seldomly seen by the public.

The goal of Artists by Artists is to share such works by outstanding artists from around the state of Mississippi. This exhibition includes more than 75 portraits and provides a rare glimpse into the unique relationships between artists.

The cost of the exhibit is $5 for adults, $4 for seniors and $3 students and is scheduled to open this fall at the Mississippi Museum of Art in Jackson.

The price also includes admission to To Paint and Pray.

Visit the Artists by Artists website for more about the exhibit.
