Exhibition: Focus on Faculty | Sabbatical 2020
Focus on Faculty | Sabbaticals
Reception: March 18, 5-7pm
Each year KCAD faculty are awarded sabbaticals in order to pursue research, develop new bodies of work, or to deepen and enrich their teaching practice. Please join us as we share the results of the recent sabbatical of Printmaking Professor, Mariel Versluis.
The work in the exhibition one fine day by Mariel Versluis, is a response to current issues overwhelming our planet. She explores the over-population of humans and the resulting political turmoil and societal tragedies, while also connecting these significant issues to her own deeply personal stories. It is through the physical process of working in the studio, with her horses, dogs, and other animals, that she gains an understanding of herself, and ultimately, her collective relationship to an increasingly threatened and fragile natural world.
