Brigham Young University-Idaho's Department of Art will host its biannual faculty art show beginning on Friday, May 3. The show will be held in the Jacob Spori Art Gallery and will feature over 35 pieces completed by the faculty from within the department. The faculty art show will commence with an opening reception on Thursday, May 2 from 7-9 p.m.
The exhibit aims to explore the many different disciplines taught within the department including sculpture, painting, ceramics, graphic design, and photography.
"I want people to open their minds and gain new insights as to what art is and can be," said Kyoung Dabell, Art Gallery Assistant. "Within this show there are many abstract compositions like sculptures and paintings, as well as other conceptual pieces that make you want to think and develop your own idea and understanding of what those pieces might be and what they represent."
The exhibit will run until Friday, May 24. Faculty, students, and the community are all invited to enjoy what organizers hope will be a thought-provoking experience. More information about the faculty art show can be found online at www.byui.edu/spori-gallery.
