Bell Gallery spotlights faculty artwork in Faculty Exhibition 2000

A multimedia exhibit features the work of 14 artists in the Departments of Visual Art and Modern Culture and Media now through May 30 at the David Winton Bell Gallery.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Faculty artists at Brown University have made their mark on canvas, glass and video, among other things, for the multimedia Faculty Exhibition 2000 at the David Winton Bell Gallery.

The exhibition, which runs through May 30, features recent works by faculty from the Visual Art and Modern Culture and Media departments. It includes works in a wide range of media, from painting, drawing, sculpture and photography to computer animation, printmaking and video.

The themes of the artists’ work are as varied as the media they use. Khalid Kodi vividly portrays the human toll of famine in Sudan through wall sculpture and slides. Walter Feldman illustrates Hayden’s oratorio “The Creation” through a series of color woodcuts, while Marlene Malik explores the relationship between mothers and daughters in a video documentary. (Editors: Black and white and color images are available from the News Service.)

“The faculty exhibition is an integral part of the gallery program, and it’s always very popular,” said Bell Gallery director Jo-Ann Conklin.

This year’s exhibit includes works by regular faculty and visiting instructors. Participating artists, in addition to Kodi, Feldman and Malik, are Paul Badger, Leslie Bostrom, Tony Cokes, Wendy Edwards, Richard Fishman, Roger Mayer, Jerry Mischak, Francois Poisson, David Reville, Janos Stone and Leslie Thornton.

The exhibition is free and open to the public from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. The Bell Gallery is located in the List Art Center, 64 College St. For further information, call (401) 863-2932.
