Alex Chamberlain, Associate Professor and Art Department Chair said, "As the Art Department at DSU grows in both students and faculty, the showcase gives us an opportunity to display the increasing depth of talent, skill, and diversity that defines us. This year's showcase should have more faculty work and higher quality student work than ever before, and we're excited to share it with the community." Additionally, the Eccles Grand Foyer will feature two Art Department Faculty Members. McKenzi Dye, is a visiting Instructor of Photography and Meaghan Gates, is an Assistant Professor of Art with a specialty in ceramics. Dye said of her photography work, "I create intimate photographs from my personal life, interweaving people and place to tell a narrative about loss and love and our connectedness in the human experience." The ceramic sculptures by Gates are biomorphically based and created using multiple techniques. Gates explained, "Drawing inspiration from the natural world, my work captures moments of both beauty and the grotesque through precarious moments of flux."
