Foundations Showcase 2013: Select Works from the Beginning Fine Arts Courses is an exhibition of artwork from the MTSU Department of Art’s Drawing 1, Drawing 2, Two-Dimensional Design and Three-Dimensional Design classes. Collectively these four are grouped as “Foundations” because they develop a proper understanding of the basic principles of art. As such they are required of all students seeking a degree in Art Education, Art History, Graphic Design, or Studio Art

The “Showcase” opens with a reception Monday, September 23, 2013 at 5 p.m. in MTSU’s Todd Art Gallery located near the center of campus in Todd Hall. This is the second show of its kind in four years to recognize and feature first and second year art majors.

The work included was compiled by Foundations Professors Charles Clary and Meghan O’Connor. Asked for comment on their curatorial selections O’Connor responded, “When selecting the work … we received 20 pieces from each foundations instructor. These are works … they consider to be the strongest from their classes. …From this … body of work, we narrowed it down to fit the Todd Art Gallery space.  We chose work that represents the variety within the foundations program, as well as a strong level of craft[smanship]. Projects that explored the elements and principles of design in a creative manner especially peak[ed] our interests.”


The department’s Foundations instructors include: Erin Anfinson, Charles Clary, John Donovan, Kim Dummons, Robert Durham, Jarrod Houghton, Ryan Muldowney, Melissa Newman, Meghan O’Connor, Thomas Sturgill, and Tonya Tewell.
