CANYON, Texas — West Texas A&M University art instructors are doing their own version of “What I Did This Summer”-style reports.

Seven instructors are featured in a faculty art show now on display in the Dord Fitz Formal Gallery in Mary Moody Northen Recital Hall.

“We always start the school year with the faculty exhibition to show what the faculty has been up to during the summer and to set a professional example of work for the students,” said Jon Revett, associate professor of painting and drawing. “The main intent is to inspire the students to make better work and understand the importance of exhibiting. This year is exciting because we have several new participating artists.”

New instructors Misty Gamble (sculpture), Terry Martin (art education) and Victoria Taylor-Gore (design and photography) are exhibiting their works alongside veteran faculty members Revett, Rob Weingart (foundations), Michael Longhofer (computer art and life drawing) and Marcus Melton (graphic design).

“I’m really excited to be here at WT again — and what a dynamite show!” said Taylor-Gore, who earned her bachelor of fine arts at the University. “There are such talented faculty members in the WT art program. It’s very inspiring to work alongside such a talented group of people.”

“Being asked to hang a piece alongside my colleagues is the best warm welcome an art teacher can ask for,” Martin said.

The exhibition, on view through Sept. 26, features painting, mixed media, photography, sculpture, digital works and a video installation. Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays.

Highlighting the work of faculty is in line with the planning principles of the University generational plan WT 125: From the Panhandle to the World.
