"Our faculty and staff have interesting lives and pursuits outside of the workplace," said Ed Valentine, professor of art and gallery curator. "We draw, paint, photograph and knit. We make things. We keep our minds and hands active. We are proud of what we do and we want to share it."
The exhibition will feature 45 pieces of artwork from 25 people. The art media types range from watercolor, pastel, graphite, mixed media, oil and acrylic to photography, Photoshop and textile.
The exhibition is free and open to the public.
