Augusta University Department of Art Biennial Faculty Exhibition

Augusta University Department of Art Biennial Faculty Exhibition

A selection of photographs, prints, paintings, and sculpture by the Augusta University Department of Art faculty members are included in the sixth Biennial Augusta University Art Faculty Exhibition on view in the Main Gallery of Ware’s Folly November 3 – December 9, 2016.

Returning once again to the Gertrude Herbert Institute of Art, this biennial exhibition highlights the prominent artists and educators on staff in the University’s Art Department and features a compilation of original works in a variety of media. The works demonstrate a striking range of perspectives and techniques, illustrating the depth and talent of these professional art educators and their value to the community. The exhibit also serves as an extraordinary setting for the Institute’s annual fundraiser, Oysters on Telfair, which will take place the evening of November 3, 2016 from 7:00 – 10:00 p.m.  The event features a silent art auction of works from local artists, music by the Crosstie Walkers, Cajun fare by Tastefully Yours, open bar and an array of wonderful raffle items. Tickets are $75 and can be purchased online at TixClix or by calling the Institute at 706.722.5495.

The relationship between the Gertrude Herbert Institute of Art and the Department of Art at Augusta University, formerly Augusta State University, has long been mutually beneficial, and the Institute greatly values the combined efforts the school has made to develop visual arts appreciation and quality throughout the greater Augusta area.
