Bevier Gallery at Rochester Institute of Technology will host the College of Imaging Arts and Sciences “Faculty Exhibition”—an annual exhibit showcasing recent work by full and part-time faculty members from RIT’s School of Art, School of Design, School for American Crafts, and Foundations. The show runs from Dec. 7 to Jan. 13, with an artist reception scheduled from 5 to 7 p.m. on Dec. 11.
“The faculty is usually so immersed on campus with a multitude of day-to-day responsibilities related to teaching that their own substantial creative endeavors often go unseen or unnoticed,” says Thomas Lightfoot, School of Art associate professor.
“This annual opportunity in the Bevier Gallery brings to the forefront one of the most critical elements faculty in these areas have to offer, their creative activity. Whether it is in the form of fine art, craft or design, being involved in their field makes teaching real, not just a remote concept.”
Bevier Gallery is handicapped accessible and located in the James. E. Booth Building, 73 Lomb Memorial Drive. Regular gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday; 7 to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday; 1 to 4:30 p.m. Saturday; 2 to 4:30 p.m. Sunday. Admission is free and visitor parking is available in E and F Lots. For more information, call (585) 475-2646.
