BYU-Idaho Spori Art Gallery to display faculty artwork
REXBURG — Brigham Young University-Idaho art department faculty are exhibiting their personal artwork.
This coming Jan. 18, to Feb. 7, the Jacob Spori Art Gallery will exhibit artwork created by art faculty. The gallery is open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. during the week and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturdays.
On Jan. 17, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. an opening reception will be held in the Spori Art Gallery. Visitors can come to meet the artists, get a first look at the artwork and enjoy light refreshments.
“This is an exciting occasion for students and visitors, particularly for the art students. They get to see what their teachers can do outside of classrooms; not as teachers, but as exhibiting artists themselves.” Spori Art Gallery curator Kyoung Dabell said. “The faculty have been teaching various art principles in their classrooms, and now the students get a chance to see those principles in action.”
BYU-Idaho exhibits the work of different local and regional artists. The Spori Art Gallery gives the community and students a chance to be surrounded by and enjoy the artwork.
Artwork varying from ceramic work, illustrations, graphic design, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture and other forms of art can be found in the gallery. According to Dabell, most of the exhibits feature a single artist working with one medium. This exhibit brings multiple forms of art for visitors to enjoy.
“It’s an exciting exhibit for visitors and the campus at large because they can see a variety of styles and subjects in a variety of media that are taught on campus,” Dabell said.
