2018 Faculty Art Exhibition on the way

Mallory Pautz

The biennial 2018 Faculty Art Exhibition, to be located within the Bradley Fine Arts building at Lakeland University, will kick off Friday evening with an hour-long Opening Reception beginning at 4:30 p.m. 

 The featured artists include faculty members Bill Weidner, Dionne Landgraf, Mark Weber and Monique Brickham. Each artist will have an opportunity to introduce themselves and their works to attendees, and will be available throughout the reception to answer questions viewers may have about their respective art.  

 Photography is one of the forms Weidner has recently taken more interest in as an artist. Though he’s taught photography at Lakeland for nearly three decades and has a long history with two-dimensional work, his wife has been a major influence in this new direction of photographs as individual artworks. The two were married earlier this year, and Weidner describes his delight in both creating in this new form while also being able to share and critique each other’s works. 

 This will be the second Faculty Art Exhibition for Brickham, a graphics design professor at Lakeland University. This year, Brickham’s third as a Lakeland University faculty member, various logos designed for area businesses will be showcased, proving art forms can be both creative and functional. 

 Weber, a graphic designer, commercial illustrator, and Howards Grove high school baseball coach, has a penchant for logos, graphics, and multiple applications. However, this year’s faculty exhibit will emphasize illustrations of families, people, and a few religious works, a recent focus of Weber’s as he approaches retirement from Lakeland University after 15 years of dedication to preparing graphic design students for success in the professional world. 

 Landgraf of Silver Lake will feature both lyrical drawings as well as oil-based landscape paintings of Lake Michigan. “The lake has consistently drawn me physically and spiritually,” said Landgraf of finding her inspiration for the 2018 exhibition. Though Landgraf has shown her work at Lakeland University several times throughout the years since her first experience, the 1989 Lakeland College Invitational, she continues to be thankful for the honor. 

 After the reception, the exhibit will be displayed Monday through Friday during regular school hours and closes Nov. 9. Fall break may affect the Bradley Gallery’s operating hours. 

 The Faculty Art Exhibition’s Opening Reception is a convocation, and students are encouraged to attend. Light refreshments will also be served at this free event open to the public.
