Thirty works of art, of various media, were curated by Furman Associate Professor of Art Michael Brodeur who says, “The theme of this year’s exhibition, Various Selves, lends itself to many approaches and interpretations. In my deliberations, I aimed to embody the concept of self and ‘the other’ implied in the theme either through metaphorical expression, exploration of self, or portrayal of others.”

UES Director Beth Crews says students, alumni, staff and professors are fortunate to have a community showplace in the Herring Center for displaying their collective creative work. “Evening students are working adults, none of whom are art majors or professional artists. 70 works were submitted for consideration. It’s remarkable to be able to curate so many high-quality pieces from this group,” she says.

Participating artists in this year’s exhibition are:
Erin Albrecht
David Bernardy
Ashton Cartee
Jennifer Cote
Beth Crews
Diana Godwin
Jennifer Grissop
Bryan Hiott
Tammy Moore
Tiffiny Murphy
Scott Murr
Raven Ostlind
Pamela Rastatter
Machelle Simmons
Sam Tisdale
David Williams
