Faculty artist: Assistant Professor of Art and Design Lauren Kussro 

An exhibition of art created by art faculty will be on display in University of Houston-Clear Lake’s Art Gallery, with an opening preview reception Nov.15 from 5-7 p.m. The exhibition opens Nov. 15 and runs through Dec. 18.  

Six full-time faculty and seven adjunct faculty members of UH-Clear Lake’s Art Department are submitting art from across all media, said Assistant Professor of Art and Design Lauren Kussro. “This is a chance for students and faculty to see what the art faculty is doing in their areas of research,” she said. “This will showcase all of us and the work we do.”

Kussro, who teaches printmaking at UHCL, said that she will submit standard prints, a piece made from fabric that’s been screen printed and constructed into 3-D forms, as well as other pieces.

Adjunct professors will be submitting one piece and full-time faculty may submit up to five pieces. “We’ll have works in ceramics, sculpture, collage, drawing, printmaking, video, photography, graphic design and textiles,” Kussro said. “It’s a collaborative effort. We will figure out how the show will be arranged together. I hope this exhibition makes our work more accessible to everyone.”
