Herron School of Art and Design is opening its fall gallery season with a trio of exhibits, including a showing of faculty-created art.
The biennial Faculty Show runs Aug. 10 through Sept. 12 in the Reese, Berkshire and Paul Galleries at Eskenazi Hall, at 735 W. New York St. on the Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis campus. A free public reception for the show will take place from 5 to 8 p.m. Aug. 24.
This year’s faculty exhibition includes the work of 35 faculty members from various departments of the school, including art history, ceramics, furniture design, painting and drawing, photography and intermedia, printmaking, sculpture and visual communication design.
“All tenured and tenure-track faculty, lecturers and program technicians were invited to participate,” said Herron’s Gallery Director Paula Katz. “It’s always interesting to see who has work available to show and what the artists, designers and scholars in the show have been creating recently.”
A sampling of posters from a collection produced by 20 contemporary Russian artists is on display through Aug. 24 in the Marsh Galley of Eskenazi. Titled “Russian Posters,” the collection was shown during Moscow Design Week to mark the 120th birthday of the Russian graphic designer Aleksandr Rodchenko.
A thesis exhibition by Amina Khazie, candidate for a Master of Fine Arts in furniture design, is the third season opener. Khazie’s exhibit runs through Aug. 24 in the Basile Gallery.
Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday; closed Sundays.
