Each year The Gallery at VCUQatar invites teaching faculty in Art Foundation and the art and design departments to submit proposals for entries into next academic year’s Faculty Focus exhibition. The annual faculty exhibition provides an opportunity for members of staff at VCUQatar to present the results of their current artistic and design exploration in a formal gallery environment, and is intended to inspire, stimulate and participate in the creative activity of the university at large. This is particularly the case with this year’s exhibition - “We decided to open the show to all faculty and staff as a way to show the creative works of everyone who makes up VCUQatar,” said Jurgensen, a gallery committee member. The show comprises a range of art and design works, including 2D, 3D and time based media.
‘F for Faculty’ is scheduled from 14 December, 2011 to 21 January, 2012.
