The Cress Gallery of Art announces the first exhibition of the academic year with the public opening of The 2009 UTC Department of Art Biennial Faculty Exhibition, featuring visual art in a variety of disciplines and media. This art was created within the past two years as part of the ongoing research and professional development of the Department of Art’s individual educators.
The 2009 Faculty Exhibition presents fresh and provocative perspectives, covering contemporary trends of the formal aspects of art making to the challenges and global dilemmas faced by contemporary society.
Both traditional materials and digital/new technologies are employed in the work of this exhibition of full-time and adjunct faculty from the department’s expanding professional programs of Painting and Drawing, Graphic Design, 3-D Studio Arts, Photography/New Media, and Art Education.
Participants include Alan White, Ron Buffington, Maggie McMahon, Dan Bethune, Phillip Lewis, Jessica Westbrook, Leslie Jensen Inman, David Young, Robert Cox, John Tallman, Mia Bergeron, Mark Bradley-Shoup, Susan Seaton, Adam Trowbridge, Juanita Tumelaire, Angela Dittmar, and Matt Greenwell, Head, Department of Art.
