REXBURG, Idaho— For its first exhibit of the semester, the Spori Art Gallery at Brigham Young University-Idaho will be displaying the work of the university’s Art Department faculty from Jan. 18 through Feb. 7.
The gallery, open to the public from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturdays, will be filled with a variety of artwork with different styles, subjects, and media. Visitors can expect to see works of ceramics, illustration, graphic design, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, and more.
An opening reception will be held for the exhibit on Jan. 17 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the Spori Art Gallery for those who would like to meet the artists, get a first view of the exhibit, and enjoy light refreshments.
“This is an exciting occasion for students and visitors—particularly for the art students. They get to see what their teachers can do outside of classrooms—not as teachers, but as exhibiting artists themselves,” said Spori Art Gallery Curator Kyoung Dabell.
The Spori Art Gallery aims to provide opportunities for students and the local community to be surrounded by and enjoy works of art. The gallery often features artwork from local and regional artists, as well as the university’s permanent collection. Private tours are available to groups of 15 or more and can be reserved by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
