Faculty Exhibit at JSU Continues through Oct. 27
Continuing through Oct. 27, the faculty exhibit displays features photographs
by Doug Clark and graphic design by Phil Kesler. Both are assistant professors in the art department.
Clark’s photographs are about the spaces, we occupy, both urban and rural environments, according to the photographer. Treating photography
as a fine art opens up unlimited amounts of possibilities for personal expression, according to Clark. His work in this display
falls into three categories: “Altered Landscapes”, “Illumination Series Images I” and “Natural Elements”.
Clark says he loves the environment here in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains and that there is a connection here between
his interest in nature and this area.
In 1993 he hiked the entire Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine over the course of six months, choosing with the camera
what he wanted to see and what he wanted the viewer to consider.
Kesler’s exhibit is from his master’s thesis from Utah State University. It involves posters with different imagery addressing
themes that come from the amendments in the Bill of Rights.
The project required a study of the philosophy of post modernism in art, literature and communication. According to Kesler,
his intention through design media was to speak to the many voices of the people who are affected by the principles of the
Bill of Rights.
