“The Edge Show,” through April 10

Through Wednesday, April 10

University of Dubuque’s Bisignano Art Gallery, 2255 Bennett Street, Dubuque IA

An annual fine-art showcase involving students in the Department of Digital Art and Design at the University of Dubuque, The Edge Show is the latest exhibition at the institution’s Bisignano Art Gallery, this celebration of dazzling young talent on display through April 10.

Approximately 30 student artworks are presently featured in The Edge Show, with the digital images and illustrations include digital paintings, graphic illustrations, imagined landscapes, contemporary icons, expressive portraits, and abstract expressions. All digital art and design majors are required to submit one digital artwork that they have created for the showcase, and no one is allowed to use a class project.

“The DART program’s emphasis is on client-driven projects, not in the fine arts,” said Sheila Sabers, MAC, head of the Department of Digital Art and Design and assistant professor of digital art and design. “The Edge Show allows our students the experience of presenting digital expressions in a fine-arts format for the gallery. Students have an outlet to explore composition, process, and media outside the classroom using their objectives and establish their visual voice to communicate through image.”

The mission of the Charles and Elizabeth Bisignano Art Gallery is: to serve University of Dubuque students, faculty, staff, and the surrounding community by bringing diverse exhibit to campus; to support the mission of UD by connecting visual arts to other disciplines via educational programming and collaborations; and to promote UD to the tri-state area and beyond by welcoming the public to attend (in person and virtually) the exhibits. The Bisignano Art Gallery is the programming arm and primary resource for the Digital Art and Design Department. The gallery features at least 10 original, in-house curated exhibitions per year. It also serves as the primary display space for students and faculty on campus, providing opportunities through juried student shows, Senior Thesis exhibitions, and faculty shows.

The Edge Show will be on display through April 10, with regular gallery hours noon to 5 p.m. on Monday through Friday. Admission is free, and more information is available by calling (563)589-3267 and visiting Dart.dbq.edu/gallery.
