Herron School of Art and Design will showcase recent works by faculty members Phil Tennant, Vance Farrow and Craig McDaniel. The show "Drfiting Towards Another Winter" will run in Herron’s Marsh Gallery Nov. 5 - 23, 2010.
Tennant, professor of furniture design, came to the fine arts department in 1975 to develop the furniture design program. Prior to his appointment, he spent three years as a studio assistant to internationally-renowned furniture artist Wendell Castle in Rochester, New York. He maintains an active professional career as a studio furniture artist, furniture designer and sculptor. His many patrons include private, corporate and public clients.
Farrow is an assistant professor of foundation studies and fine art. His drawings currently revolve around human nature as seen through the figures of ethnic minorities. “I am interested in exceptions rather than rules,” he said, “in the kinds of people that I don’t see often enough in works of art...at least not often enough for me.”
McDaniel is associate dean, director of graduate programs and professor of fine art and will be showing paintings. He is co-author (with Herron faculty member Jean Robertson) of the recent books: Themes of Contemporary Art (Oxford University Press, 1st Edition, 2005, 2nd Edition, 2009) and Painting as a Language: Material, Technique, Form, Content (Harcourt Brace, now Wadsworth College Publishing, 2000). He is the author of articles in Sculpture, Art Journal and New England Review among others. His own art has been featured on covers of Gettysburg
Review, Dialogue, and Arts Indiana, as well as in numerous exhibitions.
