Terre Haute, IN - The ISU Department of Art welcomes the beginning of the academic year with "You are here. Faculty Exhibition 2009."

This annual exhibition will feature recent work of the Department of Art faculty beginning Sept 17- Oct 2, with a public reception with the artists from 5 - 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 17. The reception catering is sponsored by M. Mogger's Restaurant & Pub. The reception is open and free to the public and is wheelchair accessible.

"You are here" is representative of the established talents of the ISU Department of Art, offering a rich survey of drawing, painting, sculpture, ceramics, photography, and video. The exhibition will feature Alma Mary Anderson, Chester Burton, Erin Caldwell, Ray Chen, Glenn Dunlap, Fran Lattanzio, Nancy Nichols-Pethick, Bradford Venable, and Sala Wong. The exhibition is a unique opportunity for students and the community to view the quality of workmanship that is not only taught but executed by art professors at ISU.

The University Art Gallery is located in the Center for Performing and Fine Arts at Seventh and Chestnut streets. The gallery is open to Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. and Thursday from 11 a.m. - 8 p.m. All gallery events are free and the facility is wheelchair accessible. For additional information call 812-237-3720.

The University Art Gallery hosts exhibitions, visiting artists, and scholars throughout the academic year. Its mission of exposing cutting edge contemporary art to ISU and Terre Haute would not be possible without the generous support of Arts Illiana, Indiana Arts Commission, College of Arts and Sciences, and the Department of Art.

The University Art Gallery would like to extend a special thanks to M. Mogger's Restaurant & Pub, located at 900 Poplar, for providing hors d' oeuvres at the reception. Their support of cultural events here in Terre Haute greatly appreciated.
