UWG Bobick Gallery Presents Kingdom Animalia

by Raven Ponder

For the first year, the UWG Art Department featured an exhibit titled, Kingdom Animalia in the Bobick Gallery. From May 1, 2014, through August 1, 2014, students, alumni and visitors will have the opportunity to view works from UWG alumni and visiting artists. This exhibit is free and open to the public for four months and features various media with animals as the subject matter.

UWG Bobick Gallery Presents “Kingdom Animalia" Kingdom Animalia was created from artwork selected from the permanent collection. The art department's permanent collection holds over 500 pieces dating back to 1964 and is primarily purchased from UWG art students and visiting professional artists. The collection is kept to document the cultural history of the university and art department.

According to the art department website, Kingdom Animalia “explores the different ways we view animals and each artist's work expresses how they interact not only with their medium, but also their surroundings.” The art department provides students with an opportunity to see not only their works on display, but their professors' works as well. The department is dedicated to featuring events that allow students to learn about the many media platforms in the field. Works on display range in media and include painting, ceramics, printmaking and mixed media sculpture.

The Bobick Gallery is located on the first floor of the Humanities building and is the primary exhibition space. The Bobick gallery features many events during the school year to highlight the works of students, alumni and visiting artists.
