The Art History Program wishes to promote the arts at Duquesne University and have activities that are rewarding for our students. As a result of a collaboration between the Dean's Office of the McAnulty College and Graduate School of Liberal Arts and the Art History Program, our inaugural exhibit launched on March 25, 2014. It is our hope to present on a regular basis an exhibit by a visiting artist each year, or even each semester.
Our Inaugural Exhibit
More About the Artist
Before arriving at Auburn University at Montgomery, Mr. Hairstans taught at John A. Logan College in Carterville, Illinois. His recent work features monochromatic paintings of urban environments. The scenes represented often have a mundane quality. Visual perception, distortion, and a sense of being in transit come into play in his paintings. He recently showed work at the Sioux City Art Center and the Moberly Area Community College. Mr. Hairstans currently has gallery representation at the Amsterdam Whitney International Fine Arts, Inc. in New York City.
