Join us on Thurs., Jan. 10, for the biennial faculty show opening reception. This year, the show is entitled Have Patience With Everything That Remains Unsolved In Your Heart. This quote from Ranier Maria Rilke’s Letters To A Young Poet speaks to the frustration that can occur during the art making process. Art can be a process of uncovering and discovering what lies within. No one knows this better than a teacher of art, who must approach art-making from many points of view: creator, mentor, instructor, community member.
In this exhibition, the tables are turned on the normal school dynamic. Instead of contemplating and giving feedback to other’s work, the visual arts faculty display their own hearts, whether resolved or not, inviting dialogue with their students and the rest of the community.
