Troy University’s International Art Center celebrates faculty art show

Troy University celebrated the artwork of faculty members at a reception held at the International Arts Center.

The faculty art show entitled “A Walk in The Forest” was displayed in the IAC featuring artwork created by the university’s own art and design professors.

Interim Chair of the Department of Art and Design Greg Skaggs enlisted the help of students to support their teachers show.

“All the publicity and all the marketing was actually created by students,” says Skaggs. “So they developed I don’t know five, six, seven, eight titles and then I chose one.”

All of the pieces on display are original creations ranging from acrylic on canvas to photography, sculptures and even digital media.

The artwork is on display to give professors a chance to show off their talents to their students.

“Well it’s actually highlighting all of our faculty members or almost all of our faculty members that get to showcase a little bit of their artwork,” says Art and Design Professor Kelly Berwager. “You know I think students don’t see us as producers of art so it’s kind of cool that they get to see us as artists. So it’s just a sampling of everybody’s artwork.”
