Ink on Japanese Fiber, Relief PrintUpon walking in, I was immediately engulfed in my surroundings.  The multitude of mediums in the Beatrice M. Haggerty Art Gallery is impressive.  Representing  work from Catherine Caesar, David Fiegenschue, Dan Hammett, Frank Krevens, Lyle Novinski, Virginia Marsh, Andrew Myers, Courtney Miles, Kim Cadmus Owens, and Juergen Strunck, this show has something for everyone.  Like Michelangelo took a block of marble and chiseled away a masterpiece, the UD art faculty manipulated wood, vinyl, Japanese fiber, neon signage, and more.

Oil on Canvas

Great color on this one and "Cheap", also by Owens, below.

I love her use of color, especially in the reflections. A MUST-SEE in person!

Lyle's at it again! Want to see the new face of UD? Several of the new plans for UD's aesthetics are on display.

Wood and Plaster

If you like what you see, the exhibition continues through October 3rd.  Read more about it in the UD News.

The ceramics are done by Frank Krevens who is also showing his pieces in a solo show, “Straight-No Chaser” at the MoKAH Art Gallery in Deep Ellum.  This show is in partial fulfillment of Krevens’ Master of Fine Arts and will be on display until September 18th.

My favorite pieces were done by Kim Cadmus Owens (UD Painting Professor), but all were worth taking a stroll over the bridge and through the woods to an oasis at the heart of campus.

Near the entrance to the exhibit, there is a guest book for thoughts, reflections, and comments.  I leave you with the words and thoughts of Dean C.W. Eaker:

“Very nice.  Thank you for sharing your art with the UD community.”
