The University of Southern Indiana Art Faculty Exhibition and the James Parrent Memorial Exhibit is open in the Kenneth P. McCutchan Art Center/Palmina F. and Stephen S. Pace Galleries in the Liberal Arts Center on the campus of the University of Southern Indiana. The show will continue until October 30, 2011.

This show marks the first time the University of Southern Indiana art faculty members have exhibited their creative works on the USI campus. Art professors in the exhibit are: Michael Aakhus, Chuck Armstrong, Jill Baker, Sarah Bielski, Mark Brendel, Pamela Combs, Joan deJong, Lenny Dowhie, Henri Helsloot, Stephen Herron, Andrea Hoelscher, Alisa Holen, Xinran Hu, David Huebner, Andrew Kosten, Mary Ann Michna, John McNaughton, Robert Millard-Mendez, Nancy Raen-Mendez, Carolyn Roth, Erich Shelton, Joseph Uduehi, Christopher Walker, Jane Case Vickers, and Kathryn Waters. On exhibit are 69 artworks in a wide range of art media, from painting and sculpture to digital design and interactive media by the 25 artists.

The James Parrent Memorial Exhibition highlights the creative works of James Parrent, a 1977 USI alumnus and an adjunct instructor in art who passed away on January 13, 2011. Mr. Parrent was an outstanding art student at USI who went on to graduate study at Washington University in St. Louis and Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, where he earned his Master of Fine Arts degree. He worked as a landscape designer and taught drawing for many years at USI, and was a much beloved instructor in the department. Twenty prints and pastel drawings are on display, dating from undergraduate work at USI to 2010. Also on exhibit are sets of pastels and fishing flies he collected, the former used to create his drawings, and the latter as subject matter and inspiration for them.

Art Center hours are Monday - Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday, 1 to 5 p.m.
