Selected Art Faculty Exhibition

Reception: Thursday, October 15, 5:30-7:00 pm
Gallery Talk: Wednesday, October 21, 10:30 am

Important connections between faculty and students occur when faculty exhibit their work on campus. This exhibition presents an opportunity for students and the community to become more closely acquainted with department faculty as artists.

Small groups continue to rotate for annual faculty exhibitions. This year's featured artists are Kyle Ford, Trish Lyell, Janet Sorensen, Peter Stake, and Joanne Vella. Ford will exhibit photographs, Lyell will show drawings, and Sorensen, Stake, and Vella will exhibit paintings. These artists are able to show a larger number of works than faculty members have exhibited in previous years when more than 20 artists participated in the annual exhibit. Skidmore studio art faculty have shown regionally and nationally, and most have gallery affiliations in one or more major cities throughout the country, are represented in numerous public and private collections, and have been the recipients of significant awards.

The Skidmore College studio art faculty consists of 12 full-time professors and five full-time and five part-time visiting assistant professors, representing a wide variety of disciplines including art theory and foundations, ceramics, communication design, drawing and painting, electronic media, fiber arts, metals, photography, printmaking, and sculpture.
