Faculty and Staff Exhibition

Faculty and Staff Exhibition

A Faculty and Staff Exhibition showcasing the talent of the artists who teach and work in Humboldt State University’s Art Department will be featured at Humboldt State University First Street Gallery in Old Town, Eureka, California. The exhibit will run from August 24 through September 19.

“The students benefit greatly from the broad and diverse artistic backgrounds of the staff and faculty of the H.S.U Art Department,” commented Jack Bentley, Director of the First Street Gallery. “This exhibition demonstrates how Humboldt State’s Art Department provides students with practical, living models of individual success in the art world; while also providing them with the critical abilities to understand and interpret a variety of practices in the visual arts.”

This particular exhibition will give students and the public an opportunity to see how the instructors at H.S.U. approach their own art, outside of the classroom. The public will be introduced to a wide range of themes and styles, which include works in ceramics, drawing, graphic design, jewelry, metalsmithing, painting, photography and printmaking and sculpture.

The gallery will also exhibit pieces by some former professors.  Bentley cites the inclusion of these artists in the show as a way to demonstrate the depth and the evolution of the Art Department.

A reception for the artists will be held on Saturday, September 4th from 6-9 p.m. during Eureka’s monthly Arts Alive event.  Celebrating its twelfth year of service to HSU students and to the North Coast community, Humboldt State University First Street Gallery is open Tuesday through Sunday from 12 to 5 p.m. and is located at 422 First Street, Eureka, California. Admission is free. Those planning group tours are encouraged to call ahead.  For more information call 707-826-3424.
