“Things Observed” is the theme of this years’ art department faculty exhibit now in the Whipple Fine Art Gallery. Faculty members Renee Couture, Ted Isto, Greg Rice and Susan Rochester are displaying their respective talents in a presentation of photography, pottery, clay works and modern art.

“The faculty in our department all have active art professions. This exhibit helps students get a feel of where the faculty is coming from before and while they take art classes from us,” said Rochester, associate professor of art and department chair.

She noted it was interesting how the observation of the world in different ways came out in each professor’s various works. One of the more unique pieces is the modern art exhibit by Couture featuring light, linens and laundry.

The show opened Sept. 28 and closes Nov. 11. Some of the artwork is for sale.

If visitors are interested in purchasing a piece, they may contact Rochester or department secretary Haley Stammen at (541)440-4691.
