From digital art to work inspired by Sept. 11, the annual faculty art show at the University of Virginia’s Fayerweather Gallery features a variety of media and subjects.


The exhibition, which opens Monday, Sept. 2, and runs through Thursday, Sept. 26, includes digital art by visiting artist Bogdan Achimescu, who returns to the McIntire Department of Art from Romania. He was artist-in-residence at U.Va. during the spring 2000 semester. He has been teaching digital art in summer school and will continue during the 2002-03 academic year. A drawing and print artist, Achimescu has expanded his palette to include the digital medium.

Inspired by the events of Sept. 11 and a quote from novelist John Gardner, who describes art as “lightening,” sculptor William Bennett’s piece, “Falling House: Like Lightening,” takes advantage of the unique space of the gallery and makes a connection between the interior space of the gallery and the outside.

Also in the show will be recent work by Richard Crozier, Dean Dass, Lydia Gasman, Philip Geiger, Sanda Iliescu, Megan Marlatt, Akemi Ohira, Lincoln Perry, Eric Schmidt, Elizabeth Schoyer, David Summers, William Wylie and Kevin Everson, who was a fellow at the American Academy in Rome last year.

Fayerweather Gallery is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
