'Blind Jury' features School of Art faculty in all-inclusive exhibition

January 28, 2011

All ASU School of Art faculty members in the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts teaching during spring 2011 are invited to display works of art in Blind Jury, an all-inclusive faculty exhibition. Exhibiting faculty include: Mary Hood, Adriene Jenik, Muriel Magenta, Kathryn Maxwell, Ellen Murray, Jerry Schutte, Forrest Solis, Mary Stokrocki, Jim White, and many others. Blind Jury runs Feb. 3-27, at the Night Gallery, which is located at the Tempe Marketplace. 

Blind Jury showcases the entire School of Art faculty at the Night Gallery, and is held concurrently with a curated exhibit at the ASU Art Museum that features several ASU School of Art faculty members.

“The Night Gallery, because of its size and its ease of access, is a perfect place for such an exhibit and I hope it will continue,” says Adriene Jenik, professor and School of Art director.

Jim White is an ASU School of Art sculpture professor and faculty advisor for the Night Gallery. He agrees that the Night Gallery exhibition provides easy community access to works created within the School of Art, which is beneficial for both faculty artists and the public.

“This should be one of Night Gallery’s best exhibitions. This is an opportunity to show the community the diversity and caliber of the art faculty in the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts. It’s also the first exhibition in the Night Gallery that is large enough to fill the entire space. I’ve been excited about this exhibition since it was first planned,” White adds.

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. Night Gallery is a constantly changing, 3,800 square-foot exhibition and experimental art space made possible through a partnership between Vestar Development Company and the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts. Unique performances including music, dance, readings, theater and video also are staged at the Night Gallery.

The Blind Jury exhibition and meet-the-artists event are free and open to the public. See Blind Jury Feb. 3-27 at the Night Gallery, which is located at the Tempe Marketplace, 2000 E. Rio Salado Parkway, Tempe, AZ. The gallery is on the west end and south side of “The District” between Barnes & Noble bookstore and Aeropostale. Meet the Artists: Friday, Jan. 4, 6-9 p.m. Night Gallery hours: 6-9 p.m., Tuesday-Sunday.
