The International School of Art & Design 2021 Faculty Exhibit is on display now at the Finlandia University Gallery. Gallery Director Carrie Flaspohler joined Olivia Myers on Finlandia Fridays to talk about the exhibit and upcoming artist reception.
Recent works by full-time, adjunct and emeritus faculty representing a diverse range of media and concepts will be on display. Artists include Tom Adolphs, Jon Brookhouse, Carrie Flaspohler, Phyllis Fredendall, Terri Jo Frew, Gini Gesler, Lindsey Heiden, Joyce Koskenmaki, Gray Kotila, and Denise Vandeville. Ceramics, fiber art, digital art, sculpture, drawing and painting are several of the media that will be represented in this exhibit.
“I’ve put a lot of thought into how to run a gallery because the building is actually closed due to the pandemic,” said Flaspohler. “I’ve done a lot this year to make it accessible to a wide group of people and part of that is holding Zoom receptions. I put together a powerpoint presentation with the works in the show and the artists come and present their work just as they would at an opening reception.
“The wonderful part of that is that people can join all over the world. Last reception we had someone from Brazil there so it has opened access in a funny way. It’s one of those funny parts of COVID that has broadened our experience.”
The exhibit will be up until March 19. Please call 906-487-7500 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to set up an appointment to view the exhibit.
A Zoom reception for the artists will take place on March 4 beginning at 7p.m. Each artist will present a brief slide presentation of their work with a question and answer period following the presentation.
