mixedmediafaculty-1Metropolitan State University Gordon Parks Gallery presents Mixed Media: The Faculty Show as the first exhibit of the school year. The exhibit opens with a reception on Friday, Sept. 12 from 5–7:30 p.m. and continues through Oct. 3. Gallery hours are Mondays–Thursdays, 11 a.m.–7 p.m.; and Fridays–Saturdays, 11 a.m.–4 p.m. The gallery is located in the Library and Learning Center, 645 East Seventh Street, at the university's Saint Paul Campus.

This exhibition features creative works produced by Metropolitan State's fine arts instructors. From paintings and sculptures to photographs and films, this show highlights the multi-disciplinary efforts of resident and community faculty. Participants include: James Byrne, Saint Paul, Joseph Flores, Minneapolis, David Means, Minneapolis, Amy Sands, Golden Valley, Areca Roe, Minneapolis, Erica Spitzer Rasmussen, White Bear Lake, Anne Sugnet, Minneapolis, Alonso Sierralta, Minneapolis, and Petronella Ystma, Saint Paul.

Regarding the exhibition, Erica Rasmussen, resident faculty member and gallery director, said, "Although this exhibition is open to the entire university community, exposure to such a show can be an invaluable tool for students interested in taking art classes. Close inspection of imagery and objects or multiple viewings of short films can reveal subtleties about the work that might otherwise be lost through limited contact or reproductions. Similarly, investigating the work on an intimate level will likely communicate a great deal about an instructor's technical abilities, personal interests and conceptual concerns."

The reception includes a screening of James Byrne's new film, "The Light of Each New Day." The film will be looped in a room adjacent to the gallery. All shows and programs at The Gordon Parks Gallery are free and open to the public.
