KOKOMO, Ind. — Indiana University Kokomo students already know their fine arts and new media faculty do excellent work in the classroom.
Starting Wednesday, October 24, students and the community can see what five of them do creatively outside the classroom, with the opening of the New Media and Fine Art Faculty Exhibition.
The exhibit includes prints by Minda Douglas, assistant professor of fine arts; sculpture and video work by Gregory Steel, assistant professor of fine arts; graphic design pieces by Erik Austin Deerly, assistant professor of new media communications; jewelry by Susan Skoczen, lecturer in fine arts; and ceramics by Walter C. Brown III, adjunct faculty in fine arts.
Skoczen, who is also art gallery director, said the exhibit showcases the diversity of interests in the fine arts faculty.
"There are traditional ways of working, such as printmaking and ceramics, that date back to many thousands of years, but are contemporary in design. Then there are digital pieces that reflect contemporary ways of creating art and show what it means to be in the new media program at IU Kokomo."
The exhibit opens with a reception from 4 to 7 p.m. October 24 in the Art Gallery, 2300 S. Washington St. The exhibition continues through December 6. The Art Gallery is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday, and noon to 4 p.m. Saturday. It is closed Sunday, Monday and Friday. Free parking is available on campus.
Indiana University Kokomo serves north central Indiana.
