The Arkansas State University-Beebe Art Department is currently displaying works of art by ASU-Beebe faculty and staff, which is entitled FacStaff Show. The exhibit will be on display through Friday, April 18.
“The exhibit reveals a new light on the people we work with on our campuses,” said instructor of art, Thomas Fernandez. In the exhibit are paintings, photographs, various quilts, a wedding dress and 3-D prints to name a few.
The Computer Aided Drafting and Design (CADD) Department created a 3-D replica of the Iron Man mask. Also, an art instructor at the ASU-Beebe-LRAFB created a chiffon wedding dress out of salvaged material. “These are great pieces of original artwork,” said Fernandez.
ASU-Beebe is the only two-year college in the state of Arkansas that offers an Associate of Fine Arts (AFA) degree. The AFA degree has an emphasis in vocal music or instrumental music, theater, graphic design, or creative arts enterprise. This degree is a comprehensive two-year curriculum designed specifically for transfer toward a bachelor’s degree in fine arts.
The FacStaff Show may be viewed at the England Center Art Gallery, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. through April 18. The gallery is located at the corner of Center and Orange Streets in Beebe. For more information, contact the gallery at (501) 882-4495.
