Fort Hays State University's Art Department plans an eventful year with several exhibitions for the fall 2005 and spring 2006 semesters.
Unless otherwise noted, all exhibitions will be in the Moss-Thorns Gallery of Art in Rarick Hall on the FHSU campus, which is open on weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. With the exception of the Faculty Exhibition, all shows will include an opening reception from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. on the first day of the exhibits.
To kick off the series, the art faculty will hold its annual show on Oct. 6, displaying its own collection of artwork. The work will be on display from Sept. 30 to Oct. 28.
Visiting artist Robert Schweiger will follow the faculty exhibition with his printmaking display from Nov.4 to Dec.9.
