“Aunspaugh, 1984-2003” will open at U.Va’s Fayerweather Gallery on Friday, Nov. 7, and run through Wednesday, Nov. 26. The show features works by past and present Aunspaugh Fellows, a program that grants outstanding studio art students an opportunity to remain at University of Virginia a year after graduation as fifth-year interns.

“This program has been very successful,” said studio art professor Dean Dass. As part of the program, the fifth-year fellows create portfolios for application to graduate school. “We’ve been placing them in top art schools,” Dass said.

The exhibit will open with a lecture by Rosemarie Fiore, a 1995 Aunspaugh Fellow and acclaimed artist working in New York City. Fiore will speak about her work, which focuses on the relationship between man and technology. A reception will follow her 5 p.m. talk.

Fiore credits the program with providing her time and space to create a focused body of work.

“The program supported and encouraged me to become an artist,” she said.

Fiore returned to U.Va. to teach for a year after she received an M.F.A. from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

Other artists whose work will be exhibited include Nellie Appleby; David Bendernagel, an M.F.A. student in the creative writing program at the University of Washington; Maggie Booth, currently studying in the University of Iowa’s number-1-ranked graduate printmaking program; Thomas Doran, who received and M.F.A. from the Tyler School of Art, and Jonathan Durham, who received an M.F.A. from UCLA — both currently teaching at U.Va.; Laurie Edwards; Sara Hutson; John Leahy; Judith Leeman; Roland Lusk, currently studying at Cranbrook Academy of Art; Leora Sheridan; Marc Snyder; and Marti Hayken.

On Saturday, Nov. 8, participating Aunspaugh artists will give a series of gallery talks in Fayerweather Hall.
