Works by Valparaiso University faculty and students will be on display during separate exhibits at the Brauer Museum of Art beginning March 28.
The Valparaiso University Art Faculty Exhibition will be on display in the museum’s West Gallery from March 28 to May 13. The exhibit will feature works by nine Valpo studio art instructors. Each faculty artist will be represented by four to six pieces of original artwork. An opening reception is scheduled for 7 p.m. Friday, March 30, at the Brauer Museum of Art.
The museum’s Wehling and McGill Galleries will feature student art. First will be the Secondary School Showcase from March 28 to April 15. This exhibition will highlight art from high school students in the six-county region. An opening reception and award ceremony is scheduled for 6 p.m. Wednesday, March 28, at the Brauer Museum of Art.
“The Secondary School Showcase is a popular annual show where students can see their art displayed in a museum setting,” Brauer director/curator Gregg Hertzlieb said. “I am consistently and pleasantly impressed by the fine works the students submit each year.”
The second exhibit in the Wehling and McGill Galleries is the Valparaiso University Art Student Exhibition, which will be on display from April 18 to May 13. The opening reception and award ceremony for this exhibit is at 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 18.
There will also be a BSFA Senior Exhibition, featuring the art of Taylor Fleming, Adam Jackson, and Ashley Roll. This exhibit, running from April 18 through May 20, will be displayed in Gallery 1212. An opening reception is scheduled for 7 p.m. Friday, April 27.
“The art student and BSFA exhibitions highlight the creative efforts of Valpo students in their studio classes,” Hertzlieb said. “The BSFA exhibition features those three students who are pursuing the more studio-intensive degree. I am always delighted to see the fine work done by these students as they pursue creative expression in their chosen media.”
These exhibitions were made possible through funds provided by the Brauer Museum of Art’s Brauer Endowment, the Brauer Museum of Art’s Robert and Caroline Collings Endowment, Valparaiso University’s Cultural Arts Committee, the Partners for the Brauer Museum of Art, and the Valparaiso University Art Department’s Zahn Fund.
