Now On View: WAM Annual Faculty Exhibition
The Higgins Education Wing will exhibit artwork created by faculty members of the Studio Class Programs department from November 4, 2016 – January 19, 2017. Our Annual Faculty Exhibition presents 38 works of art by 23 artists who currently teach and assist at the Museum in the areas of painting, mixed media, printmaking, and more. The exhibition features a wide range of visual practices, spanning many genres and media.
As working professional artists and educators who balance their own art making with teaching at WAM, the faculty exhibition allows students, the community, and the public the opportunity to experience the diversity of approaches each artist employ. WAM’s Studio Class Programs faculty is a strong and diverse group, exploring a range of traditional and contemporary mediums and themes.
View the exhibition and meet the artist at this special closing reception on Thursday, January 19, 5:30-7pm. The exhibition is free and open to the public. The Higgins Education Wing is open Sunday–Saturday, 9am-5pm.
