VARTS Faculty Rockin' It!

Just a few updates on our incredible VARTS Faculty:

Longtime and much beloved Photography Professor, Denny Moers will have a reception for his work installed in the Administration building as part of our ongoing Art on Campus series.

Professor Tayo Heuser is one of the great treasures of the Visual Arts program, teaching Figure Drawing, Sculpture and next semester, Stone Carving.  She is featured in the latest Networks, RI documentary series in this beautiful piece below (music by her son, Julian Shore).  We're so proud of her!

Tayo was born in Washington D.C., and grew up in Africa and Europe. She received her BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, RI and Masters degree from Vermont College in Montpelier, VT. Currently, she lives and works in Providence, RI. Heuser's most recent sculpture and drawings were featured in her solo exhibition at Cade Tompkins Projects in 2011 in Providence R.I. In 2009-2010 her sculptural drawings were featured at the Phillips Collection in Washington DC. for a year long solo exhibition. Recently she exhibited at the Exhibition Gallery at Roger Williams University in Bristol, RI, as well as at the Cynthia Reeves gallery in NYC, the Center for Contemporary Non-objective Art and the H29 gallery in Brussels, Belgium as well as in group exhibitions at the Chateau de Fernelmont in Belgium, the Margarete Roeder Gallery in NYC, the Dorsky Gallery in Brooklyn, NY and the Chazan Gallery in Providence, RI.
