The University of Southern Mississippi will have an opening reception of the Faculty Art & Design Show on Thursday, Sept. 6 at 6 p.m. in the Gallery of Art and Design, George Hurst Building on the Hattiesburg campus. The free, month-long exhibition will feature recent works created by the Art & Design faculty of Southern Miss.

Acting as a celebration of the visual arts at USM, the Faculty Art & Design Show will include a broad range of work in drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, and ceramics.

“This show provides a great opportunity for the Art & Design faculty to exhibit together as a collective,” said Museum Director and Associate Professor Mark Rigsby. “It also serves to inspire art students that we are not only art professors, but professional practicing artists as well. What we do is rooted in the practice of making art.”

The exhibition will feature works by professors Allen Chen, Jacob Cotton, DeAnna Douglas, Janet Gorzegno, John Mark Lawler, James Meade, Marcus Michels, Carolyn Norton, Michael Richardson, Mark Rigsby, Traci Stover, Jennifer Torres, David Wilkinson, and Kevin Vanek.

The exhibition will remain available for viewing until Sept. 21.
