Three new professors joined the Art and Design Faculty in the fall and this is the first chance to see their work up- close. Alessandra Sulpy is originally from New Jersey and attended Indiana University for her Master of Fine Arts. She is a figurative oil painter who is increasing working in more abstracted and surrealistic ways by creating unfamiliar worlds that start to cross over into familiar ones. Currently Alessandra teaches Drawing 1 and Drawing 3, and this summer is co-teaching an art course in Florence, Italy with Jay Merryweather. A southern Utah based fine art photographer who specializes in historical and alternative photographic processes, Rheana Gardner, received her Master of Fine Arts in Photography from the Academy of Art University. Deborah K. Snider, she holds Masters of Arts degrees in Art Education from University of Colorado at Boulder and a Master of Fine Arts in Interdisciplinary Arts from Goddard College. Three of her fabric collages were published in the 2010 Lark Books "500 Art Quilts," one of which won an Honorable Mention in the "Art of Our Century" juried exhibition at the Woodbury Art Museum in Orem, Utah. She is Assistant Professor of Art Education at Southern Utah University.
