Opening Reception Tuesday Sept. 8, 4-6pm
PSU Art professors dig into their artistic intent and personal process of making by choosing an “object” to pair with their artworks.
What inspires an artist? How do the concepts that inspire artwork evolve over time? Is there a trigger or a significant object that either inspires, is part of the art making process, and/or subsequently seems to have a relationship with the work?
For this year’s Faculty Exhibit, professors were asked to dig into their artistic intent and personal process of making by choosing an “object” to pair with their artworks. The goal of the exhibit will be to create a visual conversation about idea generation through the artwork and object each faculty member chooses. This exhibition twist will evoke new questions and hopefully new ideas for faculty, students, and the community at large. “Object” can be loosely translated. Anything from a photo or a rock to a scrap of paper or an apple (etc.) is fair game. Objects can be serious or playful in nature.
