The ecce gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new work by local talent, Andrew Stark, professor in the Department of Art & Design at MSUM. The artist’s style draws broadly from the history of painting, with strong connections being made from the renaissance, Rubens, as well as contemporary influences such as Gerhard Richter. Andrew’s recent large-scale work contains dense compositions that achieve both a richness and an electricity. The collection conveys elements of old master figure painting, and seeks to create and explore interactions between figure painting and abstract mark-making. Read the rest of this entry →

Within the plan, five low enrollment majors would be phased out and some academic departments merged. The plan would result in 16 fewer temporary faculty and six fewer tenured or tenure-track faculty, with the exact number depending on how many faculty accept a second round of early separation incentives.
