Rasmussen Art Gallery hosts some of its own with “New Work,” the art department faculty exhibition beginning on February 16 and showing through March 17. “New Work” will feature the art of seven Pacific Union College faculty members and include everything from photography to calligraphy.
“It is a privilege to work with such talented faculty and artists,” says designer and assistant professor of art, Milbert Mariano. Mariano’s work will be shown along with the creations of Jerry Dodrill, Rita Hoshino, Thomas Morphis, Cliff Rusch, Bob Seyle, and art department chair, Tom Turner. Despite busy teaching schedules, the latest ceramics, paintings, photographs, and graphic designs showcase the artists’ continued exploration of new concepts and materials. Many of the them have also been featured in solo and group shows around the country.
The faculty show sets a high standard for aspiring student artists at Pacific Union College. “It’s great that the students can see their professors active in creating new work,” explains Mariano. Student art will be featured in an upcoming exhibition.
