From the Chair

When we last celebrated the DEPARTMENT OF ART & ART HISTORY BIENNIAL EXHIBITION in January 2020, we had no idea how our world was about to suffer and change. Now, in Spring 2022, this sixth biennial show brings us hope, a sense of accomplishment, and a desire for togetherness that we are happy to share with you through the Martin Museum of Art.

The works in this exhibition … represent the creative scholarship by studio artists and art historians. For this biennial, we have invited both permanent and temporary faculty to participate as our department had several retirements in the past two years. These faculty, regardless of rank, have worked diligently to learn how to teach various modalities (online, hybrid; synchronous, asynchronous) over the past 22 months to maintain the high standard of teaching our Baylor students expect. The teaching challenges faced by the studio artists must be reflected upon. The creative works you see in this exhibition were also produced during this same period of isolation (the time of the Covid-19 pandemic), that in itself is remarkable.

As we returned to entirely face-to-face teaching during the fall 2021 semester, we emerged from a life in solitude with minimal social interaction. Overnight, the halls became vibrant again – even with our masks! Please join us in experiencing the visual works of art by our Studio faculty that will (or have already) appeared in juried (peer reviewed) international, national, and regional in-person and online exhibitions. Celebrate the recent publications (previously delayed by Covid) and research projects by the art historians. These are represented in the Martin Museum by installed didactic text and images and in upcoming lectures prior to the end of the exhibition.

We will continue to build character as we re-enter the stream of life - safely and healthfully. Our faculty teach and create with a sense of determination and commitment. My sincerest appreciation to the faculty and staff of the Department of Art & Art History for all that they have done, in every way, since the 2020 biennial exhibition. Special thanks to Allison Chew, Martin Museum Director and her staff: Krista Latendresse, Creative Lead and catalog designer; Elisa Crowder, Education Coordinator; and Reagan Beck, Museum Attendant. The support from the Virginia Webb Endowed Fund, the Ted & Sue Getterman Endowed Fund, and the Martin Museum Art Angels made this exhibition and catalog possible.
