Call for Artists - Visual Abundance

Bring your classroom to ours. And showcase your students' work in our upcoming gallery.

Regional Art Education Invitational: "Visual Abundance"

The Mount Mary University Art & Graphic Design Department invites teachers to create projects with their students for exhibit in response to Michael Velliquette’s work. We encourage you to choose relevant content that represents your interests in harmony with the inspiration derived from Velliquette’s work.

Visual Abundance will explore the themes in Michael Velliquette's work and reflect on his creative process as it relates to the nature of matter, sensation, perception, reaction and consciousness. Explore his  work in two ways: Marian Art Gallery exhibit, What We Are Looking For is What is Looking, previously shown, January-February 2016, or view Michael Velliquette’s website.
