Several University of Tampa faculty members are having their artwork featured in an exhibition titled
, which opened May 2 at C. Emerson Fine Arts in St. Petersburg.
The exhibit brings together a selection of mixed media pieces by 13 different artists, all who are affiliated with UT.
“The purpose is to see what people can do by interaction,” said
Santiago Echeverry, assistant professor of art, one of the artists
featured in the exhibit.
While each of the featured pieces
of artwork is the creation of the individual artist, the exhibit is
billed as showcasing the influence that friends and coworkers have on
“You can see that there are certain patterns in the works,” Echeverry said.
Lori Johns, a graduate of the UT Class of 2005, manages the C. Emerson
Fine Arts Gallery where the exhibit is taking place. The exhibit is the
second time in as many years that the group of UT faculty has been
featured at the gallery.
Other faculty members showing their
work at the gallery are Dr. Catherine Chastain-Elliot, associate
professor of art history; Kendra Frorup and Doug Sutherland, both
assistant professors of art.
UT alumni Roger Chamieh, Carl
Cowden III and Michael Massaro as well as adjunct instructors Yoko
Nogami, Rebecca Skelton, Jeff Whipple and Britzel Vasquez are also
exhibiting their work.
The exhibit, which runs through May 31, includes digital media, drawings, paintings, printmaking and sculpture.
