Lecture and Slides: Friday January 23, 2004  4-5pm

Artists will be at the reception to discuss their work.

The exhibition features recent work by former LSU painting grads as well as current painting grads and was organized to show a line of students from the same program (often times taught by the same teachers) in various stages of their careers.  For many students, years of intense effort culminate in graduation and then what?  The (re)visiting artists will meet with the current graduate students on Friday to discuss life after grad school. 

Come check out the exhibition and see if you can trace the Lineage among the exhibited works.

99  An Unusual Art Sale II

Be one of the first ones through the door for this amazing art sale.  Artists from across the state including Edward Pramuk, Kathleen Lemoine, Michael Crespo and Libby Johnson will donate their work to the LSU School of Art Gallery to be sold on a lottery basis for the incredible low price of $99.00.  This means anyone can afford to start collecting art, especially students.  One of the highlights of last years events was seeing students delightedly walk away with works they might not otherwise have access to.  It was great fun for bargain hunters and art lovers alike. The artist names will be revealed after purchase.  Can you tell who created what without a label? The unframed pieces will be up for viewing only during the week from Tuesday  Friday 10-4 and Saturday 12-4.  The Gallery door will close at 4pm and will reopen at 6pm for the Sale.  Live music, door prizes and delicious refreshments will make the evening a party.  All proceeds will go towards the School of Art Gallery support fund to help pay for exhibition expenses.  

Last year this event was a roaring success.  Come join in the fun, get a great piece of art for practically nothing and help support the Gallery.
