CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- The University of Northern Iowa Gallery of Art will present the 2003 Department of Art Faculty Exhibition, Monday, Nov. 3 through Nov. 24. The opening reception begins at 7 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 3, in the Kamerick Art Building lobby.
The exhibition is a formal presentation of art media in painting, drawing, printmaking, graphic design, sculpture, ceramics, photography and installation.
According to gallery director, Darrell Taylor, 'Primarily, faculty exhibitions in the department of art are valuable in that they illustrate to students in the studio program some key components of an artist's creative process: researching topics of interest, developing points of view and technical skill, and making persuasive presentations. In addition, such exhibitions are a terrific opportunity for the community to see the most recent accomplishments of these art professionals.'
The exhibition and opening reception are free and open to the public. Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday through Thursday; 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Friday; and, noon to 5 p.m., Saturday and Sunday. The gallery is located at the corner of Hudson Road and West 27th Street, on the main floor of the Kamerick Art Building. Due to campus construction, visitors are encouraged to park in the UNI-Dome south lot and use the Hudson Road overpass to reach the Gallery of Art.
