Art Exhibits To Feature Works By Faculty, Students

March 29, 2001

The annual art exhibits that feature works by Baylor University art faculty and students will open Friday, April 6, in the Hooper-Schaefer Fine Arts Center. The faculty show will be held in the Martin Museum of Art and the student exhibit will be in the University Art Gallery. Both exhibits will run through April 28.

"This is the fourth year for the combined faculty-student exhibits, and it has worked nicely," said Dr. Heidi Hornik-Parsons, associate professor and director of the Martin Museum. "I find it interesting to see influence the teachers have on their students and how the students show that influence in their work."

The faculty exhibit will feature pieces in a variety of medium, including sculpture, painting and ceramics. Eleven faculty members submitted three to five pieces each for the exhibition.

"This is a very large show, and it is representative of the different areas we teach in the art department," Hornik-Parsons said.

The student exhibit is a juried show. The pieces selected for exhibition were chosen by Victoria Star Varner, associate professor of art at Southwestern University. More than 200 art works were submitted to Varner for her review. All the student art work on exhibit was completed during the past year in a Baylor art class.

A reception for both exhibits will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday, April 5. The University Art Gallery and Martin Museum of Art are open Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday from noon to 5 p.m. and during matinee and evening performances of Baylor Theater. There is no admission charge.
