Listen to conversation between a student and an art professor
Hi. Dr. Morten. I’m Karen Stern. I met you briefly about a year ago when I was applying to the university.
You were on a panel of professors and you were talking about the art department.
Ah...and you are now a student here. I guess I said the right thing.
Yeah. Right now I am doing the intro courses in the art department, but I’m really interested in painting.
Well, I teach several of the painting courses so I hope to see you in the future.
Actually I was wondering: you are in charge of student art exhibitions at the university gallery, right?
So I know all the exhibitors are students, but I was wondering how you choose the works you exhibit every month.
Is there like a submission process or something?
Now, there is a submission process, yes. We have a gallery review committee, but we already have our exhibitions planned for the rest of the school year.
Generally our exhibitors are third- and fourth-year students, well into their coursework.
Oh, well, I guess that will be something to look forward to then, tell me, do you show all kinds of paintings?
Well, actually we started doing something different with the gallery this year.
We are featuring a specific technique each month, next month’s exhibition, for instance, will feature drip paintings.
