The exhibition showcases a wide range of media that reflect NKU faculty’s diverse areas of practice. The Third Floor Gallery will feature a solo exhibition from Candice van Loveren Geis, which explores cultural identity and the intricacies of heritage.

The complexities of colonialism and immigration are examined through van Loveren’s own familial history. Scanographs depict fragmented portraits that promote a close examination of individual body parts, digital interference, and physical striations that emphasize the limited space that exists when we perceive others and ourselves.

The full list of faculty works on display includes Josh Maier, Marc Leone, Julie Mader-Meersman, Nicholas Bonner, Denise Ayers, Christina Wald, Randel Plowman, Matthew Albritton, Hannah Smith, Julie Burkhardt, Yu Ling Huang, Brad McCombs, Kevin Muente, Paige Wideman, Julia Sebastian, Katherine Colborn, Courtney McManus, Rachael Banks, Richard Fruth, JeeEun Lee, and Christopher Smith.

The NKU Art Galleries are located on the third floor of the NKU Fine Arts Center.
