March 6 – May 12, 2018
The works in this exhibition represent the studio practices of 15 members of the Kansas State University Department of Art. These works, made within the last two years and varying in concept and construction, feature the disciplines of ceramics, drawing, fibers, graphic design, painting, photography, sculpture, and new media. The artists are a diverse group from across the nation and around the world who now call Manhattan, Kansas, home. Chad Alligood, chief curator of American art at the Huntington Library and formerly curator of the critically acclaimed Crystal Bridges “State of the Art” exhibition, will make remarks in the gallery during the exhibition opening reception. A digital catalogue, with a foreword by Alligood, will accompany “Here, and Now.”
Participating faculty members are Kevin Bernstein, Carlos Castellanos, Geraldine Craig, Nicholas Geankoplis, Matthew Gaynor, Rebecca Hackemann, Daniel Hunt, Shreepad Joglekar, Nancy Morrow, Mervi Pakaste, Teresa S. Schmidt, Jason Scuilla, Daniel Warner, Erin Wiersma, and Dukno Yoon.
