Who
ASU School of Art graduates from the early 1980s present an invitational exhibit of works. Artists include Gary Greenberg, Patty Haberman, Ron Kostoff, Mathew Smith, Polly Smith, F.X. Tobin, Hugh Warford, Victoria K. Weaver, and Alan Weaver.

What
The Déjà vu 1982 exhibit that showcases School of Art alumni from the 1980s is at the Night Gallery in the Tempe Marketplace from March 3 – April 3, 2011. The artists will be in the gallery March 4 from 6–9 p.m.

“Thirty years later, I’m proud to say that many of my colleagues are still heavily involved in the arts in their communities, and continue creating new and inventive works of art,” says exhibition curator and alumni, Mathew Smith. “The variety of ideas, imagery and materials represented in this exhibition is impressive—ceramics, paintings, metals, sculpture, collage—even fabric is found in the works of these lifelong artists.”

The artists featured in the exhibit have won numerous awards, and continue to exhibit nationally and internationally.

The Night Gallery is a community outreach gallery displaying works by ASU School of Art graduate students, faculty and alumni that embraces the role a university can play in the off-campus community.

Unique performances including music, dance, readings, theater and video also are staged at the Night Gallery.
