I am honored to share that my former graduate school professor Kelli Scott Kelley is exhibiting in USM’s Goppert Gallery, with an opening reception this afternoon! Here’s the press release for more details. Come join us if you’re in or around Leavenworth today, or stop in over the next couple weeks!
We are hosting an interesting spontaneously-added exhibition this week in USM's Goppert Gallery - Joy Anne Duquette's Sightings and Daydreams, with the opening reception having taken place on Friday, January 26th. Since it wasn't in our original gallery schedule, it's only up through this next Friday, February 2nd at 3pm, so if you want to see it you should come by soon! Here's the press release for the show.
I met Ariel while in residency at La Maison Verte this past summer, and now she's coming to exhibit with USM in Goppert Gallery! Her work will be on display February 17-March 10, with an opening reception tomorrow from 3-5pm.
Here's the full press release!
Sorry for the slight gap in posts - it's been a very busy couple of weeks! I did want to pop in and let you know that tomorrow afternoon is the reception for our latest guest artist, Assistant Professor of Art Hannah March Sanders of Southeast Missouri State University in Cape Girardeau. Hannah is a fiber artist and printmaker often working in collaboration with her husband, and I am very excited about her exhibition! Here's the press release for her exhibition, if you'd like more details!
I also neglected to highlight our previous guest artist, so I'll do that now as well. Illinois painter Scott Thomas Arthur exhibited in USM's Goppert Gallery from September 9th through the 30th. His press release is here.
I met both of these talented artists while in graduate school at LSU, and was very excited when they both agreed to exhibit particularly because both were willing to drive over to Leavenworth and actually be present for the reception as well as guest lecture my Portfolio Seminar class. This allows students and reception attendees the ability to really connect with the artists and their artwork in a way that they just can't when they only have access to the artwork.
