The reception will be held on 8 December, 2010 at 6:30 PM and the exhibition runs until 15 January 2011. The event is open to the public.
Kaleidoscope showcases the diversity among faculty members and the range of materials and approaches involved in the art and design disciplines with the hope that viewers will be inspired by the talents and the creativity at VCUQatar. The Gallery Committee worked with Assistant Professor Don Crow from Art Foundation this year to devise the concept of the exhibition.
Each participant has been given equal space for exhibiting work, i.e. each artist or designer will produce a work about one meter wide and somewhat more than three meters tall (floor to ceiling). Within these dimensions works can comprise all media: flat, sculptural or light-based, including 2-dimensional drawings, hung posters, digital projections, fabric hangings, sculptural objects, not to exceed 30.5 cm or 12 inches in protrusion from the wall. Up to three participants may work individually within the given dimensions, but horizontally on the floor. The works are not all finished artworks, some show a faculty member’s work in progress or research in a particular subject or topic to be developed further.
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. It provides faculty members an opportunity to present their results of current artistic and design research and exploration in the environment of a more select, juried exhibition that might fulfill a research requirement and provides enhanced visibility to both the artists and the work of the university at large.
The exhibition is scheduled from 8 December, 2010 to 15 January, 2011. The Gallery at Virginia Commonwealth University in Qatar is open Sundays to Thursdays, from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, or by prior appointment. A reception will be held at the gallery on 8 December at 6:30 PM. The event is open to the public.
