The Schick Art Gallery begins its 2011-2012 season with the Selected Art Faculty Exhibition, opening with a public reception on Thursday, September 15, from 5:30 - 7:00PM, see images below. Each year the Schick Gallery features four or five faculty members; this year, exhibiting faculty are: Leslie Ferst, ceramics; Deb Hall, graphic design; Robert & Shana Parke-Harrison, photography and sculpture, and David Peterson, jewelry and metalwork.

While the works on view are varied in material and sensibility, there are common threads. The photographs of Deb Hall and Robert Parke-Harrison both explore, through divergent means, human interaction with the environment and with technology. Leslie Ferst's ceramic sculptures embody a dialogue between organic form and utilitarian (man-made) form. David Peterson's meticulously crafted metalwork implies mechanical form, while remaining enigmatic.
