Local ULM Students and Faculty Showcase Art at Fall Art Crawl
University of Louisiana Monroe Fall Art Crawl is Thursday, November 1 from 5-7 p.m. The crawl features art from ULM students, faculty, and visiting artists.
According to Dr. Jeffrey Anderson, Assistant Director of the School of Humanities at ULM, the Fall Art Crawl gives ULM students and faculty an opportunity to show off their talents through paintings, sculptures, and other art forms. "I've seen some of the artwork ahead of time, and it's as always very impressive," says Dr. Anderson.
The Walker Gallery in Walker Hall features paintings, sculptures, and pottery by ULM students and faculty. The gallery also features prints and photography, as well as a book signing from authors Heather Pilcher and Cyndy L. Robertson for University of Louisiana Monroe Pictorial History. ULM opera students are performing pieces from the opera Candide, which is being performed directly after the art crawl.
Down the hall from Walker Gallery is the Dean's Conference Room, which has photography from ULM Photographer Emerald McIntyre and drone photography from Dr. Sean Chenoweth, Assistant Professor of Geosciences at ULM. The conference room also has refreshments available.
Stubbs Hall has advanced art student studios open so that crawlers can see works in progress and the process that goes into making art. "I took the time to walk through there and saw some really interesting artwork by the students," says Dr. Anderson. "It's amazing how talented and truly advanced they are. You can really start to recognize who did what when you go in there and see the process of how it's done."
Bry Gallery in Bry Hall features student artwork in the foyer and pieces from a visiting artist in the gallery. More information about the Fall Art Crawl is available here.
