Fort Hays State University's Gordon Sherman, associate professor of art, has recently exhibited art work from Topeka to California.
He coordinated the FHSU Alumni Print Portfolio "There's a New Sheriff in Town." It was in conjunction with the Jon Swindler and Dusty Herbig alumni exhibition in the Moss-Thorns Gallery of Art on the FHSU campus.
At the 2006 Wichita Arts Council Annual Juried Art Exhibit, Sherman won the Best of Show Award for his "Passin' Thru" piece, which is a drawing of a hobo.
"When you recieve an award, most times it's a surprise," said Sherman. "It is a gamble that you are able to even be in the show."
Sherman's "What's Left is Right" was at the Sabatini Gallery in Topeka. This work was exhibited as a large scale intaglio print.
"The majority of work in these exhibitions has been a direct result of research opportunities from FHSU graduate school grants and professional development grants," said Sherman.
The Brand 35 Art Exhibition at the Brand Art Center in Los Angeles, Calif., accepted "Leap of Faith," a large scale drawing. It will be on display until Jan. 17.
"This particular exhibition has a topical theme of borders -- physical, intellectual or emotional interpretations of various definitions such as limits, edges, fringes and boundaries, etc.," said Sherman.
