Faculty Biennial show opens at APSU

Austin Peay State University art professors are often commended for inspiring students in their classrooms, but that type of praise can occasionally overshadow their skills as gifted, professional artists.

“The Faculty Biennial” opens August 25 in APSU’s Trahern Gallery. The show will remind the community that high-caliber artists continue to work at the University. The exhibit, which is free and open to the public, runs through Sept. 12, with a reception from 5-7 p.m. on Sept. 4.

“Continuing one’s art practice is essential,” Michael Dickins, APSU gallery director, said. “It’s how our faculty further define their craftsmanship and skills that they then can pass along to the students in the classroom.”

The exhibit will feature works by Paul Collins, McLean Fahnestock, Barry Jones, Rachel Bush, Suta Lee, Ken Shipley, Virginia Griswold, Susan Bryant, Billy Renkl, Michael Dickins, Jennifer Snyder, Tammy Smithers, Cindy Marsh and Kell Black.

“The faculty biennial gives the students and the community a chance to experience recent work created by the APSU art faculty,” Dickins said. “It’s also an opportunity for our students to see that their professors are professional artists and are valuable resources for them to take advantage of during the semester.”

For more information on the exhibit, contact Dickins at dickinsm@apsu.edu.
