The 2007 Fordham faculty art exhibition, featuring the works of 18 professors in the Department of Visual Arts, will be on display in the Center Gallery through Nov. 15 on the main floor of the Lowenstein Center.
The eclectic exhibition features works from a broad range of disciplines, including painting, sculpture, photography, architecture, graphic design, and film and video. Among the mix of works are cardboard and wood architectural models, sculpture, mixed-media collage, abstract paintings, conceptual and traditional photography and video. A reception for the artists will be held in the gallery space on Thursday, Nov. 8, at 6:30 p.m.
“Faculty shows are a staple of all university galleries,” said Casey Ruble, artist in residence and coordinator of the Fordham galleries. “They allow students a chance to better understand their professors’ individual approaches to art-making. . ., and are a critical part of the department’s [engagement] with the school at large.”
Founded in 1841, Fordham is the Jesuit University of New York, offering exceptional education distinguished by the Jesuit tradition to approximately 15,600 students in its four undergraduate colleges and its six graduate and professional schools. It has residential campuses in the Bronx and Manhattan, a commuter campus in Westchester, and the Louis Calder Center Biological Field Station in Armonk, N.Y.
