HUB-Robeson Gallery Showcases SoVA Faculty Exhibition

Brian Alfred

The HUB-Robeson Galleries are proud to present artwork created by Penn State School of Visual Arts faculty in the Robeson Gallery from September 29-November 16. A free and public reception celebrating this exhibition will be held on Tuesday, November 14 from 5-7 p.m.

Visual artists at Penn State see things many of us mostly miss—they take the chance of curiosity and meld it with the obscurity that surrounds us to yield the unpredictable and the spectacular, the playful and the purposeful. Now we see it, now we know it. The many motions of making and the private persuasion of shaping push the limits of material and matter, re-charge technologies of form fitting, re-claim the mysteries of material thinking, re-animate audacious change, and re-vision art as nothing, and as everything else.

On view is work by full-time faculty who teach visual arts and design in SoVA studios and digital labs as part of their academic and professional practice. Participants include Brian Alfred, John Bowman, Paul Chidester, Bonnie Collura, Robin Gibson, Shannon Goff, Lonnie Graham, Andrew Hieronymi, Tom Lauerman, Cristin Millett, Jerrold Maddox, Eduardo Navas, Heleo O'Leary, Liz Quackenbush, Eric Roman, Carols Rosas, Steven Rubin, Jean Sanders, Keith Shapiro, Rudy Shepherd, Ann Shostrom, Stephanie Snider, Chris Staley, Ann Tarantino, and Robert Yarber.
