Friday, August 30, 20195:30PM - Sunday, October 20, 20195:00PM
At Longwood Center for the Visual Arts 129 N. Main Street Farmville, VA 23901

Please join us at the LCVA on August 30 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. for the opening reception for Present Continuous: Longwood University Department of Theatre, Art, and Graphic & Animation Design Faculty Exhibition.

Like their colleagues in other academic disciplines at Longwood University, art department faculty members teach full loads throughout the academic year and conduct research in their areas of specialty. For the art department, that means delving into the process of creating works of art, from both aesthetic and technical perspectives. Just as they instill in (and insist on from) their own students, their work is grounded in exceptional craftsmanship and use of materials that support the meaning and intent of their work. The art faculty's range of service to Longwood and experience in the field of art is great; all have a deeply felt commitment to their professions as educators and artists. This year's participants include Mark Baldridge, Brian Barr, Angela Bubash, Kathleen Calhoun, Andy Campbell, Leslie Cook-Day, Keith Cummings, Kerri Cushman, Randy Edmonson, Alex Grabiec, Lisa Johnson, Wade Lough, Michael Mergen, Kelly Nelson, Adam Paulek, Chris Register, Lauren Rice, Jay Simple and Homer Springer.

This exhibition highlights the innovation found in Longwood University's Department of Theatre, Art, and Graphic & Animation Design faculty. In addition to teaching, all of the faculty engage in the contemporary discourse within their respective fields. The collective connection to craft, rigor and material reflects the wide range of practices and inquiry found within graphic and animation design, and visual and performing arts.

Present Continuous is on view August 31 – October 20, with the opening reception on August 30 from 5:30-8 p.m.
