Providing the Art Department with vastly expanded professional display space, The Martha and Robert Fogelman Galleries of Contemporary Art serves as a valuable education experience for our students. Additionally, it gives the College expanded capacity to bring contemporary working artists to campus to enrich the curriculum and broaden our students’ understanding of today’s art world within the national and international context.
The galleries are open regular University business hours in rooms 230 and 240 of the Art and Communication Building, 3715 Central Ave., across from the Holiday Inn.

This culmination of expertise presents itself through multiple mediums, spanning a wide array of subjective concerns. Topics of loss, remembrance, pain, sexuality and manipulation of nature are represented throughout the photography. Perception and tension challenge tactile reality through sculpture, while color and light reveal an intangible reality. Manipulation and the manufacturing of nature are addressed in ceramic forms. We wish our viewers to join us for this milestone exhibition and to leave Longing, Not Loathing. This event is free and open to the public. For more information call 901-678-2216.
