Ouachita Baptist University’s Department of Visual Arts is hosting an art exhibit in its Rosemary Gossett Adams Gallery through March 28 that features the work of its faculty members. A reception for the exhibit will be held Tuesday, March 26, at 11 a.m. in the first floor of the Adams Gallery, which is located in Moses-Provine Hall. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
Faculty members featured in the exhibit include: Donnie Copeland, chair of the Department of Visual Arts and associate professor of visual arts; Kara Gunter, adjunct instructor of visual arts; Cary Roberson, associate professor of visual arts; Ferris Williams, assistant professor of visual arts; and René Zimny, assistant professor of visual arts.
“I am pleased to be part of this exhibit and this group of faculty. Each of us has provided something different and personal for the show,” Copeland said. “The variety of media and themes is also a pleasure as there is quite a bit to see and consider.”
A variety of media are included in the exhibit, including: illustration, graphic design, glass casting, fibers, video, abstraction and mixed media.
“As a new faculty member, I was excited about participating in this exhibition, especially during my first year at OBU,” Roberson said. “All of the faculty in the department are practicing artists and designers, and we don’t often get to see what the others are working on outside of the classroom.”
“I’m also honored to work with faculty that displays such a range of artistic and creative talent and expertise,” Zimny said. “I think it speaks well to the diverse talents within our department.”
“This diversity of work shows our students that, even though we are a small department, the range of possibilities that can be created by them is pretty vast,” Roberson added, “and that they have access to a group of faculty artists and designers that can help guide and support them on their personal creative explorations.”
