This exhibition focuses on recent work by the studio and graphic design faculty at Augustana College. Their practice is as varied as their media - from conceptual to process-based - and belies the breadth of teaching embodied by the art faculty. The varied approaches to art-making is a strength of the program, and provides for our students a multiplicity of perspectives from which to approach their own learning about theoria (thinking), poiesis (making), and praxis (doing).

This exhibition includes works by:

Kelvin Mason, Vickie R. Phipps. Megan Quinn, Trew Schriefer, Rowen Schussheim-Anderson, Corrine Smith, Ronda Wright-Phipps, Peter Tong Xiao
