Pacific Art Faculty Showcase Works at Biennial Exhibit
The Fall 2016 Biennial: Skin in the Game art exhibition began at the end of last month and continues until 29 September. Held at the Reynolds Gallery , the Faculty Biennial: Skin in the Game is a chance for all the professors in the Department of Art and Graphic Design to show off the pieces they have completed.
Last week, there was a reception held at the gallery on September 7th from 6:30pm until 8:30pm wherealloftheprofessors came to lecture about the pieces and what inspired them and their works.
Professor Brett DeBoer is the Department Co-Chair and has contributed four pieces to the exhibit. He was inspired by the writer Robertson Davies and his book series titles “Cornish” and especially the book “What’s Bred in the Bone”. The pieces were to depict the guardian angel figures in the books and were there to hopefully answer some sort of question that only art could answer.
Another great artist was Professor Michael Leonard who had quite a few interesting pieces. One was a picture of his wife that he had spent hours painstakingly editing it to give it the quality of a mesmerizing oil painting. Along with that, he had done some graphic design work for a medical textbook that had very accurate and beautiful betrayals of the human body.
Other department and exhibit members included Professors Lisa Cooperman, Barbara Flaherty, Deanna Hunt, Dan Kasser, Lucinda Kasser, Marie Lee, Jennifer Little, Steve Mehallo, Monika Meler, and Jill Vasileff.
Professor Jill Vasileff was responsible for putting on the whole exhibit which happens every two years, and it is perfect for giving students and the general public a chance to see whattheprofessorsduein their free time when they are not teaching the next generation of artist.
Margareta Brunet, 16’, was there to attend the reception and had just recently graduated from University of the Pacific. She found the whole exhibit wonderful and was proud to see all her previous professors’ pieces of work. She was especially fascinated by Marie Lee’s work because that was her first professor from Pacific. This was the first time she would see her scholar’s work.
All in all, it is a beautiful exhibit and if it sounds interesting make sure to stop by before September 29th. For dates. check out the Reynolds Gallery Calender on the Pacific website at www.Pacific.edu.
