The Dedo Maranville Fine Arts Gallery is Thrilled to be back live and in-person, and proud to kick off the 2021-22 Arts Season with the Art & Design Faculty Exhibition. This multi-media exhibition will feature a wide variety of media, aesthetic outlooks and visual expression, representing the broad range of interests and talents of the VSU Art and Design faculty. This very popular annual event is where art faculty members show that they don’t just “talk the talk,” but also “walk the walk,” as all studio instructors are also practicing artists.
Students, patrons, art lovers of all stripes, and community members alike will enjoy seeing the exciting new work by full and part-time art faculty, and listening to live music by the VSU Music faculty member, David Springfield.
Come celebrate the Arts with us!
