Here’s another installment of our “Professors-Are-People-Too” series: there will be an opening reception for the 2012 Selected Art Faculty Exhibition (unnecessarily awkward title, I know) at the Schick Gallery tomorrow night.

Each year, the Schick displays the work of several faculty artists. This year, the artists include: Trish Lyell, drawings; Deborah Morris, paintings; Victoria Palermo, sculpture, and Matt Wilt, ceramics.

The exhibition will run from September 13 to October 21.

Thursday, September 13 in Schick Gallery @ 5:30pm

Schick Faculty Exhibition

Monday, October 11th, 2010

As it has done for the past several years The Schick Art Gallery is once again hosting a small exhibition of work from a select few of the studio faculty in the art department. This year’s show, which opened this past Thursday, features work from John Galt, Patrick Kelley, Sangwook Lee, Iona Park and Doretta Miller.

John Galt’s recent cast iron and bronze sculptures seem to hover between animation and rest, evoking suggestions of animal, vegetable, and boat-like forms. Digital prints and video stills by Patrick Kelley probe the cultural interface between language, memory, and perception; while relative newcomer to Skidmore, fiber artist/sculptor Sangwook Lee, exhibits a playful range of three-dimensional works that comment on the interplay of American and Asian cultural images and identities. Doretta Miller and Iona Park show recent oil and mixed-media paintings, respectively. In oils on canvas, Miller renders “chair portraits” as metaphors for human subjects, while Park infuses oil on panel paintings with scorched paper, layered texture, dry pigment, wax, and varnish in abstractions that give rise to meditative spaces redolent of landscape. <skidmore.edu>

Tuesday afternoon at 4pm in the gallery the featured faculty artists will discuss and answer questions about their recent art, ideas, and artistic process.
