In addition to their work in the classroom, each member of BSU’s TAD faculty maintains an active role in the art community through exhibitions of their work, workshops and participation in professional and community organizations that promote art and design. The faculty show includes the work of:

  • Butch Holden, professor of technology, art & design

  • Sachel Josefson, assistant professor of technology, art & design
  • Michael Lund, assistant professor of technology, art & design

These faculty members will be displaying work in a variety of media, including ceramics, painting, drawing, photography, computer graphics and woodworking.

“Although not all professors in the show teach art and design, they all believe in the creative process and the influence that creativity plays in any student’s development,” Laura Goliaszewski, Talley Gallery director, said.
The faculty show and all activities at the Talley Gallery are supported by student activity fees.

Opening Reception

An opening reception for the faculty show will be held from noon-3 p.m. on Jan. 14.
