Third Street Gallery archive: 2008 Exhibitions: 3-D Art by HSU Student and Alumni Metalsmiths, Jewelers and Sculptors


Humboldt State University First Street Gallery is pleased to present,  d  d  D 
3-D Art by HSU Alumni Metalsmiths, Jewelers and Sculptors
opening on October 3rd.

“The alumni participating in this show have all developed to a point where they are working at a professional level as artists,” states First Street Gallery Director Jack Bentley.  “The 6 participants demonstrate real evidence of artistic success.  Crucial to their success, however, are the less tangible qualities they all share—a dedication and commitment to making art as a way of life and a deep engagement with their work on poetic and intellectual levels.”

Participating artists are:
Erin House – metalsmithing and jewelry 
Anthony Johnson – sculpture
Brianna Kochick – metalsmithing and jewelry, 
Sierra Pahl – sculpture, 
Lia Sharp – jewelry, 
and Jon Lyn McCallum – sculpture.

The exhibition is billed by First Street Gallery as a clear demonstration of the excellent career preparation that Humboldt State University offers its Art Majors.

Art is one of the highest enrolled majors at the HSU campus. HSU’s Art Department offers classes with 25 full and part-time instructors, multiple, well equipped studio facilities and several campus showcases that enable undergraduates to enjoy an early experience of presenting their works to the public.  Additionally, students enrolled in the Art Department’s Museum and Gallery Practices Program gain practical, hands-on experience as they design, coordinate and curate exhibits at First Street Gallery.

3-D Art by HSU Student and Alumni Metalsmiths, Jewelers and Sculptorswill be on exhibition from October 3 through November 2.  A reception for the artists will be held on Saturday October 4th during Eureka’s monthly Arts Alive program.  HSU First Street Gallery is open Tuesday through Sunday from 12noon to 5 p.m. and is located at 422 First Street, Eureka, California.  Admission is free.  Those planning group tours are encouraged to call ahead.  For more information call 707-826-3424.
