UNG faculty to showcase art on Gainesville. Oconee campuses

By Staff
DAHLONEGA - Nine University of North Georgia (UNG) professors will showcase their work this month in The 2013 Faculty Biennial Exhibition, held in the Roy C. Moore art gallery on UNG's Gainesville campus. It also marks the first Faculty Biennial Exhibition on the Oconee campus, featuring works from three Oconee faculty members.

The exhibition is an opportunity for full-time and part-time faculty to display their own artwork. The show is an opportunity for students to see the art work of their professors, and is also an example to the public of the "quality and range" of art being produced in the art programs at UNG.

The show features a wide array of artwork, including drawing, painting, ceramics, sculpture, printmaking, and video and mixed media works. Participating faculty for the Gainesville exhibition are John Amoss, Rebecca Brantley, Judson Duke, Jennifer Graff, Hyoungseok Kim, Jennifer Manzella, Erin McIntosh, Sydney Nettles-Coates, and Bebe Williams. The Oconee exhibition will feature works from Isabell Daniel, Stacy Koffman, and Kate Windley.

The Gainesville exhibition opens Feb. 20 and will run through March 20. A reception will be held at noon on Feb. 21 in the lobby outside the gallery. Both events are free and open to the public. The Roy C. Moore Art Gallery is located in the Gainesville campus' Continuing Education/Performing Arts Building. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Wednesday and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday.

The Oconee exhibition will run from Feb. 27 to March 27, and a reception will be held at noon Feb. 28. The Oconee Campus Gallery is located in Faculty Center Building 700, near the bookstore.
