Faculty Exhibition at Boston University School for the Arts


An exhibition of work by artists who teach in the Visual Arts Division of the Boston University School for the Arts opens at the Boston University Art Gallery on Friday, September 17 and continues through Sunday, October 24, 1999.

The exhibition features a diverse and distinguished group of artists working in a variety of media. Exhibiting artists include painters John Walker, Harold Reddicliffe, Richard Raiselis, Peter Hoss, Hugh O'Donnell, Stephanie Kay, Sam Lacombe, Stuart Baron, Gunta Kaza, Alfred Leslie, Nadine Zanow, and Margaret McCann; sculptors Carol Keller, Nick Edmonds, Ed Smith, Ed Gerwe, Isabel McIlvain, and Katharine Wales; printmakers Deborah Cornell and Sid Hurwitz; photographers Ulrich Mack and Stephen Frank; art educator Janet Olson; and graphic artists Laura Giannitrapani, Alston Purvis and Richard Doubleday.

The Visual Arts Division of Boston University's School for the Arts offers a classically structured educational experience based on intensive studio training in drawing, painting, sculpture, and two - and three - dimensional design. The program emphasizes visual education, technical skill, and aesthetic understanding - the cornerstones of art that make persuasive self expression possible. Artist alumni include sculptor Julia Shepley, and painters Robert Guillemin (Sidewalk Sam), Jon Imber, Brice Marden, and Richard Yarde.
