“Castel Sant’Angelo 1”   

 6” x 7” mixed media drawing, Rome, Italy 2011 

Shippensburg University faculty member to exhibit art in October

“Complex Simplicity,” an exhibit of drawings and paintings, will be on display in Kauffman Gallery in Huber Art Center at Shippensburg University Oct. 1 through 25.    

The exhibit includes mixed media drawings, oil, and encaustic paintings created by Michael Campbell, professor of art & design.     

An opening reception is 3:30 p.m. Oct. 4 in the gallery.      

The drawings combine watercolor, acrylic and ink washes with permanent inks on archival paper. The images throughout the exhibit are derived from travel experiences in Italy and study at The Art Students League of New York, New York City. A feeling of place, time and space exists in these graphic, expressive and sometimes minimal works of art.    

The gallery is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, and 9 a.m. to noon and 7 to 9 p.m. Wednesdays.
