CONCORDIA ART EXHIBITION OPENS ON MOVE-IN DAY
Concordia College’s art exhibition “Once and Always Here: Recent Work from Graduate Students and Faculty in Ceramics at the University of Iowa” opens Sunday, Aug. 25, on Move-In Day for new and returning students. The exhibit runs through Tuesday, Oct. 15, in the Cyrus M. Running Gallery. A public reception will take place from 4-5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 15, in the gallery with artist remarks at 4:15 p.m.
This exhibition showcases current work in ceramics and mixed media by three faculty members (Andrew Casto, Josh Van Stippen, and Benj Upchurch) and six graduate students (Brandt Weiland, Rosa Ballena, Donté Hayes, Dia Webb, Maria Alarcon Aldrete, and Timmy Wolfe) from the University of Iowa. Working in proximity to each other daily, the artists represented here constitute a community of makers driven in their shared commitment to excellence and pushing the boundaries of contemporary ceramic practice. It is the hope of the group that these works will spark creative discourse among viewers and exist as a current survey of the state of ceramics at the University of Iowa, one of the first MFA programs in the United States.
Gallery hours are 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday and 1-4 p.m. Sunday.
The exhibit and reception are free and open to the public. For more information call the art department at 218-299-4623.
