A few recent faculty accomplishments to be celebrated!

Kim Martinez (Painting & Drawing) & Beth Krensky (Art Teaching) are in the group exhibition NEW DIRECTIONS at Novi Hram (The New Temple) at the XXXVIII International Winter Festival Sarajevo. Running February 7 - March 21, 2022, NEW DIRECTIONS is an exhibition that speaks to a new era, one which struggles to learn to live with COVID-19. The exhibition addresses artists’ concerns as they meet the challenge of a world which navigates the medical and political complexities of a pandemic. Every country has been overwhelmed with friends and neighbors dying from coronavirus. Moreover, a BLACK LIVES MATTER Movement has arisen in the United States as hate is ever present in American society. We have been in human hibernation, remaining home-bound, fearful of contracting the virus.
