The Cal Poly Pomona art department faculty will be displaying their passions and creative projects to the public at the Don B. Huntley Gallery located in the fourth floor of the University Library.
The Faculty show will return this year on Wednesday, April 17 with work from six full-time and part-time art department faculty members.
On opening day, April 17, there will be a reception held from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
“My piece focuses more on the ocean and the city pollution and how we don’t value our environment and the next generation will have to clean it up,” said Ann Phong, an art professor.
Phong’s pieces that will be included in this year’s faculty art show are titled “Yesterday’s Precious, Today’s Trash” and “Nature in the Cities.”
“My painting is not flat because I put a lot of objects on it,” Phong said. “I cut the canvas and rebuild it and I use pretty and vibrant colors to attract the viewer to look at my work longer.”
Devora Orantes, an assistant art professor, explains that there are going to be “highly detailed drawings, a lot of repeating elements such as ink on paper or like a lot of black-and-white or positive and negative relationships.”
Orantes also explained how students get to see their professors’ creativity, talents and what inspires them.
“We have these professors that are day in day out giving us lessons on foundations or what not,” Orantes said, “so I think it’s interesting or fascinating to see what kind of work these instructors are creating or what drives them and their personal inspirations.”
The exhibit will be on display through May 13.
The gallery is open Wednesdays and Thursdays from 4 to 8 p.m. and Mondays, Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 4 p.m.
Admission is free.
