Rust Belt Drew Robinson Trexler Library Art Show

"Rust Belt" by Drew Robinson '13 will be featured in Trexler Library's first annual student art show from March 20 until April 30.

On Tuesday, March 20, at 4:00 p.m., an opening reception will be held at DeSales University’s Trexler Library to premiere the school’s first annual student art show. The exhibit will run until the end of April.

Paintings, drawings, paper sculpture, and photography, as well as other styles, will be showcased. “Although DeSales University does not have an art gallery like other Lehigh Valley colleges, we wish to showcase the untapped talent at DeSales,” said Deborah Burrows, instructor in the performing arts, liberal arts, and social sciences.

Many of the selections will come from studio art courses taught by Burrows, but she stresses that the gallery is open to all students. Photography from students of Jack Lerch, TV/film specialist and instructor in the performing arts division, will also be included.

According to Debbie Malone, library director, “We’ll have about 40 pieces in the show, so the art will be displayed throughout the building. We’ll make a floor plan available for the show that will indicate where each is hanging.” Most of the pieces will be located on the first floor.

“It’s a chance to highlight some of the talent here. Students can appreciate the different styles,” Burrows said. “It’s not just about the art students. There’s real, untapped talent from students in all majors.”

It is hoped that the gallery will become a yearly event. In the future, Burrows would like to showcase staff and faculty art with the student art pieces.
