ARTIST + TEACHER = INSPIRATION2
 

LOGAN, UT – Five art teachers from around the state are coming together to exhibit their work in “Artist + Teacher = Inspiration Squared,” showing Nov. 19 – Dec. 14 at Utah State University.

           

“This exhibit is to celebrate teachers in secondary schools who are also practicing artists,” said Dennise Gackstetter, lecturer of art in the Caine College of the Arts. “They inspire their students and show them it is possible to have a career as an artist.”

           

New this year, “Artist + Teacher = Inspiration Squared” is a chance to showcase practicing artists/teachers. Each teacher was chosen based on recommendations from USU art students.

           

“Many art students are here because a secondary teacher encouraged them to become an artist,” said Gackstetter.

           

The teachers highlighted in this exhibit are Zan Burningham, Roger Rigby, James Rees, Lester Lee and Lori Monson. Two of the highlighted teachers live in Cache Valley, Burningham teaching at Sky View High School in Smithfield and Rigby teaching in Logan.

           

“I am interested in seeing how others have maintained a sense of equilibrium between the role of teacher and artist,” said Rees, teacher at Provo High School. “For me it is an ongoing struggle.”

           

This exhibit is showing in the Tippetts Exhibit Hall, located in the Chase Fine Arts Center on USU’s Logan campus, open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. “Artist + Teacher = Inspiration Squared” is free and open to the public. For more information, visit the Caine College of the Arts Box Office in room 139-B in the Chase Fine Arts Center, call 435-797-8022 or see the college website (arts.usu.edu).
