Triennial 2015 Opens 2015–16 University Museum Season

Posted on 9/8/2015 8:47:22 AM

IUP’s faculty artists from the Department of Art are featured in the opening exhibition of the University Museum 2015–16 season, Triennial 2015. The exhibit will run September 12–October 17, 2015.

The works created and collected by the IUP art faculty enrich the experiences of their students in the classroom each semester. These inspirational works will now be shared with the community through this group exhibition. The collaborative Triennial exhibition provides varied styles and mediums to interest and inspire the most diverse of audiences.

Triennial 2015 features works by Sean Derry, Tony DiMauro, Ivan Fortushniak, BA Harrington, Nathan Heuer, Maura Keeney, Steve Loar, Sharon Massey, Chris McGinnis, Susan Palmisano, Bob Sweeny, Marissa Sweeny, Kevin Turner, and Rhonda Yeager.

The exhibit also includes works from the private collections of art historians Irene Kabala, Brenda Mitchell, and Penny Rode.

An art historian and faculty member, Mitchell describes the items in her private collection as representing a personal or professional relationship. Of the artists whose work she collects, Mitchell states that “Each artist has taught me something important and made me think in new ways about the world we live in.”
