The Department of Visual Arts to Host a ‘Haunted Halloween Gallery’
By B. Marsalis Edwards, Student Intern
Alabama State University’s Department of Visual Arts will host a “Haunted Halloween Gallery: A Terrifyingly Creative Event,” on October 31- November 14. The exhibit, which will be held at the Tullibody Fine Arts Center’s Warren/Britt Gallery, will showcase works from students, faculty, staff and local artists. The event is free and open to the public.
The exhibit will kickoff on October 31 with a reception at 11 a.m. and will include food and prizes. Attendees are encouraged to wear costumes, although they are not required.
Alana Taylor, art professor at ASU, said the exhibit is designed to get more students interested in the programs offered in the department and to create overall excitement about art.
“We would like the students to see that the Department of Visual Arts offers an array of art classes students can take as electives, even if they are not art majors,” Taylor said. “We have film/photography, drawing, print making, digital media/animation, ceramics and sculpture and many other classes. We also have an art club and are currently working on a photography club.”
Artwork submissions are still being accepted for the Haunted Halloween Gallery.
