The exhibition features varied media ranging from painting, drawing, photography, and ceramics to illustration, printmaking, mixed media, video, and digital art – all of which highlight the talent and creativity of the individual artist. But Art + Design faculty at Sage are not only artists; during the academic year, they teach classes, advise students, serve on committees, and otherwise make themselves invaluable to the campus community. It is the special gift of a faculty exhibition to highlight these artist/teachers – people dedicated not only to making art, but to teaching and inspiring young artists. This exhibition is a testament to their passion and dedication as artists, and their work encourages us to think deeply about our own perceptions of the nature of progress, the environment, violence, power, spirituality, gender, and more.
