EJ Hauser in Painting III.
In addition to our core faculty, our nationally recognized Artist-in-Residence program brings a different visiting professional artist to the UT campus each semester. The artist-in-residence (AIR) teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in both Painting and Drawing areas. The AIR, who typically works and resides in New York or other urban centers, acts as an additional bridge between the university and life beyond it.
The 2014 Spring semester marks the AIR Biennial, an exhibition that will include work by recent AIR’s Patricia Treib and Michael Berryhill, current AIR EJ Hauser and forthcoming AIR, Jaya Howey. We are so excited to present work from such high caliber artists right here at the University of Tennessee’s Ewing gallery.
Our current AIR, EJ Hauser, was one of the few distinct artists to receive a prestigious Rema Hort Mann Foundation Award. She will give an in depth talk about her work on November 26 at 7:30 pm in RM 109. Be sure to arrive early, as seating is limited. This is a unique opportunity to see and hear about her work in person.
Josephine Halverson and Keltie Ferris (recent AIR’s) were recently featured in two separate videos produced by Art 21.
The AIR program crucially enriches the marketplace of ideas at the School of Art. Their presence on campus is palpable and the nature of discussion they propel is unparalleled.
