New student exhibit ‘shows the diversity’ at Todd Art Gallery

The MTSU Department of Art’s Student Gallery Committee is inviting the public to a new exhibit at the Todd Art Gallery, “Nous,” a salon-style display featuring a variety of student works from across the creative spectrum.

Nous logo web“Nous,” which is French for “we” or “us,” is open through Thursday, April 11.

“‘Nous’ is a show that provides us the opportunity to show the diversity of the art department,” said sophomore studio arts major Amber Lelli, the exhibit curator.

“It includes student artists at all different skill-levels using different mediums … (and) is intended to embody as much student work as possible while exploring different gallery showings in our new (Todd Gallery) 210 space. This show gives us a glimpse into our current art community… at Middle Tennessee State University and how each student is growing on their own creative paths through this program.”

The exhibit features 90 examples of student artists’ work in book arts, ceramics, printmaking, painting and sculpture, as well as graphic design and the foundation areas of drawing and two-and three-dimensional design. Photography, mixed media, digital art and other emerging art forms are also included.

The work spans the entire exhibit space, displaying art wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling.

Todd Art Gallery exhibitions and receptions are always free and open to the public. The gallery is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and is closed on state and university holidays.
