“The works of art include drawings, paintings, sculpture, graphic design, video, animation and photography,” Smith said.

The free show will continue to run through Feb. 4 with the works of 13 Studio and Digital Arts faculty exhibiting work. The submissions include photography, drawing, digital art and studio art.

Thursday evening, people quickly formed a line to see the opening of the gallery.

“The turnout was fantastic,” Smith said. “Students, faculty and visitors from the community attended.”

Liberty senior Sandi Owens was one of the students who attended the opening of the gallery.

“I enjoyed seeing all the works of art,” Owens said. “It was a really cool experience to see all the talent.”

Smith said that the Department of Studio and Digital Arts plans to host many more exhibits inside their fourth-floor gallery during the remainder of the semester.

“We will have a Graphic Design Exhibit, Senior Studio Art Exhibit and Juried Student Art Show — all in the Liberty University Art Gallery,” Smith said. “Another exhibit, the Larger-than-Life exhibit, will be shown on the second and third floor of DeMoss Hall in the (Integrated Learning Resource Center).”

The Art Gallery, located in room 4069 inside DeMoss Hall, will continue to show various kinds of art throughout the year.
