“Secret” Artists from the USM Community Exhibition is an exhibition that allows students, faculty and staff to showcase their own art projects, that they work on in their free time away from the university. Artists cannot enter any work that was an assignment or required as part of their career. Shelby Prindaville, director of the art program at USM, said that people tell her all the time they make their own art work aside from required projects.
The exhibition will run from October 26 to November 6. On Friday, October 26 there will be a reception with refreshments from 3 to 5 p.m. to celebrate the artwork that was submitted. The Exhibition will be in Goppert Gallery in Xavier Hall.
“Right now there are four pieces that have been brought in,” Professor Prindaville said. She is hoping for more students, faculty, and staff to drop off more artwork as the cut-off date gets closer. The last day anyone can turn in their artwork is October 23rd.
