From the Vault: 40 Years of Excellence at UA’s Emily Davis Gallery
Opening reception: Thursday, December 4th, 5:30-7pm.
Exhibition dates: December 4, 2014-February 13th, 2015
“From the Vault” explores the history of the Gallery and its collection with an array of works by visiting artists, professors, and alumni from the school. Works on display include a variety of media, from ceramics to printmaking and painting. These works highlight different artists and eras in the gallery’s history, allow viewers to experience a deeper understanding of and appreciation for the collection.
The Emily Davis Gallery has a history of bringing in international artists as well as national contemporary artists. In addition to drawing visitors from around the area, the Gallery has played an important role in educating University of Akron students about curating, installing, and preserving artwork. This exhibition will highlight that history and invite visitors to explore artworks from the permanent collection.
Developed from a medley of themes of corruption, censorship, filters and layers, the exhibition “Façade” runsNov. 24 through Dec. 4 in the upper and lower atrium and Projects Gallery of Folk Hall, home of UA’s Myers School of Art, 150 E. Exchange St., Akron. The exhibition and parking are free.
The free opening reception is Thursday, Dec. 4 from 5:30 to 7 p.m.
Organized by UA’s Advanced Graphic Design class, “Façade” features student interpretations of the relationships between exteriors and internal substance. Guided by Assistant Professor Markus Vogl during this fall semester, the art students designed the show’s theme and content, as well as their individual displays.
