APSU Faculty Biennial Art Show Reveals Diverse Interests

 

The APSU Department of Art LogoHaving just attended the Alumni Art Show at APSU the week before, I was eager to learn what current faculty members in the Department of Art were working on this year. What I found was a diverse but interesting array of entries in the free show at the Trahern Gallery. Ranging from the massive and powerful sculpture of Olen Bryant to the thought-provoking statement art of Department Chair Gregg Schlanger to the intricate linocut of Jesse Shaw, I was pleasantly surprised at the offerings with which faculty members stimulate the minds of art students to provoke their creativity.
