In addition to the annual faculty show's display of recent paintings, drawings, prints, photos, ceramics, sculpture, glass works and installations, I invited our talented faculty to also create works specifically addressing the theme, “Homage.”

During our careers as professional artists and art educators, we have all learned from and been inspired by other artists. The show, which is on display Sept. 7 through Oct. 12, is designed to acknowledge and pay tribute to some of those artists.
