Faculty art show

The Dishman Art Museum is currently exhibiting new work, including paintings, prints, drawings, photography, sculpture, ceramics and graphic design, from Lamar University’s art faculty.

“This is a show that we welcome students back to school with, and give them a chance to see what their faculty have been doing over the summer,” said Donna M. Meeks, chair of the Department of Art. “Just as the students present their work to us, we present our work to them once a year.”

The annual showcase highlights work created by Keith Carter, Kurt Dyrhaug, Xenia Fedorchenko, Sherry S. Freyermuth, Donna Meeks, Prince V. Thomas and Christopher J. Troutman. The show will also display works by adjunct faculty members Linnis Blanton, Greg Busceme and Rose Matthis, as well as studio staff members Tammany Burchinal and Neal Pitak. A closing reception for the exhibition will be held Friday, Sept. 18, from 6:30-8:30 p.m.

“The reception will be a great time for LU students, faculty and staff to gather with the community and celebrate the start of school,” said Meeks.

The Dishman Art Museum is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Admission and parking are free. For more information, call (409) 880-8959 or visit lamar.edu/dishman.
