Exhibit of art collected by NSU faculty, administrators will open Monday

Northwestern State University’s Department of Fine and Graphic Art will present an exhibition of artwork from the personal collections of faculty and administrators. The exhibit, curated by Matt DeFord and Nina Murray, will open with a reception from 5-7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 24. The show will run through Dec. 9 in Orville Hanchey Gallery.

“There are wonderful stories to share about these pieces,” said DeFord, who invited art faculty and others to submit pieces from their homes and/or offices for consideration. Information on each piece and its artist will be available with a variety of styles and mediums represented.

The Oct. 24 reception is free and open to the public. Hanchey Gallery hours are 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday-Thursday and 8 a.m.-noon on Friday.
