Kirk Newman Art School Faculty Review

December 18, 2021 - March 13, 2022

This biennial exhibition reveals why the Kirk Newman Art School’s faculty are among the leading artists in Southwest Michigan. Featuring new directions in the work of more than 40 professional artist-educators, this exciting display of media and techniques gives viewers a glimpse into the artistic prowess of our faculty. Highlighting a diverse range of talents, expect fine artwork in ceramics, sculpture, painting, jewelry, photography, fibers, and more.

Although many of these award-winning artists exhibit across the region, this is an opportunity to experience their works together, as a team dedicated to sharing the visual arts with everyone inside and beyond the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts’ studios.

Be the first to see the exhibition! Join us at the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts for an opening reception on Friday, December 17, 2021 from 6-7:30pm.
