The “USU Regional Campus Art Exhibition” will be displayed from Sept. 4 – Oct. 4, at Gallery East, located in the SAC Building of USU Eastern’s Price campus. The exhibit features student artwork from Brigham City, Eastern and Eastern San Juan USU campuses.

“Since the regional campuses and distance education programs’ of USU are increasing, I thought it would be great to showcase the work being created in art classes offered at these campuses,” said Tyler Vance, former adjunct instructor for the USU art department, who taught painting and drawing at both the Logan and Brigham City campuses.

Vance, organizer of the exhibit, collected work from instructors at all regional campuses offering courses in visual art.

 The exhibition will feature student work reflecting the variety of projects and class levels available across the USU regional campuses. The student work, which includes both two-dimensional and three-dimensional work, comes from non-major basic classes to major advanced classes.

 “This is the first time work from three different USU regional campuses has come together for a single show, which I’d love to make a yearly tradition,” said Vance. Several noteworthy pieces by students at USU Eastern are included in the exhibit.

“As always,” says Gallery East director, Noel Carmack, “the work of USU Eastern’s art students shows favorably among the college art students in the state.”

The “USU Regional Campus Art Exhibition” is a traveling exhibition that started in Logan and has travelled across USU regional campuses located in Brigham City, Tooele and Moab.

The “USU Regional Campus Art Exhibition” will be open to the public September 4 – October 4 at Gallery East on USU Eastern’s Price campus. An opening reception will be held Friday, September 7, from 7-9 p.m. in Gallery East. The gallery is free and open to the public during the academic year.

Gallery East’s fall 2012 hours are Monday through Thursday 11 a.m. – 5 p.m., closed Fridays, weekends, and holidays. If you have any questions, contact Carmack at 435-613-5241 or by e-mail at [email protected].
