The biennial Faculty Show will kick off the fall gallery season at Herron School of Art and Design. This year’s exhibition promises to be eclectic, with 35 faculty members exhibiting from departments including art history, ceramics, furniture design, painting and drawing, photography and intermedia, printmaking, sculpture and visual communication design.

“All tenured and tenure-track faculty, lecturers and program technicians were invited to participate,” said Herron’s Gallery Director Paula Katz. “It’s always interesting to see who has work available to show and what the artists, designers and scholars in the show have been creating recently.”

Participants include: Anila Agha; Lesley Baker; Karen Baldner; Andrew Davis; Stephanie Doty; Ray Duffey; Valerie Eickmeier; Vance Farrow; Reagan Furqueron; Anita Giddings; Linda Adele Goodine; Stacey Holloway; Robert Horvath; Marc Jacobson; Lauren Kussro; Flounder Lee; Craig McDaniel; David Morrison; Eric Nordgulen; Kathleen O’Connell; Stefan Petranek; William Potter; Mark Richardson; Danielle Riede; Jacob Ristau; Eva Roberts; Jean Robertson; Cory Robinson; Helen Sanematsu; Lukas Schooler; Meredith Setser; Sherry Stone; Phil Tennant; Christopher Vice; and Andrew Winship.

Also opening in the Marsh Gallery August 3 and continuing through August 24 is Russian Posters, a sampling from a collection produced by 20 contemporary Russian poster artists and shown during Moscow Design Week to mark the 120th birthday of the Russian graphic designer Aleksandr Rodchenko.

Rounding out the season opener August 3 through August 24 in the Basile Gallery is a thesis exhibition by Amina Khazie, M.F.A. candidate in Furniture Design.
