Spring Break Post

Just a brief post as students head off to enjoy a well deserved spring break:

FOLLOW UP:

The Department of Art was honored to have internationally acclaimed printmaker Tom Huck on campus last week. Tom gave a wonderful lecture and slide show about his work and with the assistance of Professor Jim Bailey, worked with students to create a limited edition run of prints. Check out these pics of Tom, Jim, and art majors Keith Miller, Lindsey Weber and Matt Fennell and the print they made together:

Also, be sure to take a look at Tom’s insane MySpace page and add him as your new bestest friend!

The event supports “healthy sexuality that goes beyond barriers, gender and stigma.” Submissions are due April 14th. Contact Blue Mountain Clinic for more details.

ART DEPARTMENT FACULTY AS ARTISTS AND SCHOLARS:

As if hosting a visiting artist, orgainizing a lecture and staying up for 35 hours to assist students in creating prints weren’t enough, Professor Jim Bailey was one of six artists from around to country invited to exhibit in “Book Marks 2008″ at the Birke Art Gallery, Marshall University in Huntington, WV.

In addition, his work was included in the exhibition “Face to Face” at the Jundt Art Museum in Spokane, WA along side such artists as Ivan Albright, Jose Posada, Rembrandt and Diego Rivera.

Professor Bailey will also be a visiting artist in April at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, LA.

HAVE A GREAT SPRING BREAK!
