From vivid watercolor paintings of serene scenes and photos of people celebrating the happiest moments of their lives to a sculpture of a foursome singing or screaming a bar room anthem, the A.B. Cohen Center came alive. On Friday evening, the Department of Art held a reception for their latest gallery show featuring pieces crafted by several Xavier faculty members.
Senior art major Monica Schweiger expressed how she is constantly challenged and surprised by the annual faculty show.
“It’s something the professors are working towards on the side and they continue to inspire me in the way that they push their own boundaries,” she said. “As an artist it helps me grow and inspires my own thoughts in a way that I was not necessarily thinking of before.”
The exhibition opened on Jan. 17 and will remain open until Feb. 17. It is open to visitors between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. or by appointment Monday through Friday.
