Fort Hays State University's Gordon Sherman, associate professor of art, has recently participated in several exhibitions across the United States and was invited to participate in several others.
"Shermantiestablishmentism," an exhibition curated by Sherman for the Hays Arts
Council's summer gallery walk, included works by Sherman, his son Dagan, his
daughter Ariel, and Sherman's printmaking graduate student Brian Hutchinson, Russell.
Three of Sherman's works were accepted for the Creed National Small Print Show in Creed, Colo. Several of Sherman's students were also included in the national exhibition.
In the Texas National 2008 at Stephen F. Austin University in Nacodoches, Texas,
Sherman exhibited a mixed medium intaglio and a monotype print.
Sherman received the highest award in the 39th Annual Smoky Hill Exhibit at the Hays
Arts Council this year for a mixed medium drawing.
Sherman recently had work on display at the Sabatini Gallery at the Topeka and
Shawnee County Library in Topeka entitled "The Printed Image."
Sherman has a current exhibition at the Hays Arts Council satellite gallery at 1010 Main St. Sherman and Toby Flores, assistant professor of art at FHSU, along with several undergraduate and graduate students, volunteered to renovate the space prior to the exhibition. Flores is exhibiting sculpture and Sherman has several large-scale drawings on display. The exhibit is scheduled to run through the end of September. To view it, contact the Hays Arts Council at (785) 625-7522.
Sherman's work was also accepted in the Los Angeles Printmaking Society's theme exhibition, "Identity." The exhibit will be on display at The Craft and Folk Art Museum in Los Angeles, Calif. from Sept. 20 to Jan. 11, 2009.
He is also scheduled to display his work in the 2008 Pacific States Biennial at the University of Hawaii, Hilo. The exhibition is from Oct. 15 to April 21, 2009, at the Hilo Campus Center Gallery.
