Sac State professors exhibit work


Doug Rice's work combines text and image.

Exploring the interface between visual and verbal expression, Design Professor Nigel Poor and English Professor Doug Rice will display their works Nov. 15-Dec. 9 in the Else Gallery in Kadema Hall.

Gallery hours are noon-4:30 p.m. Monday through Wednesday and Friday. Poor will give a talk at 5 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 18, and a reception will be held 5-8 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 2, with Rice reading an excerpt from his Between Appear and Disappear at 5:30. Both events are in the gallery and are free.

Poor’s photography is conceptual, objective, with an absurdist edge, lifting mundane items to the level of art, says Professor Elaine O’Brien, the exhibit curator. Rice’s work, which combines photos and text, is deeply subjective and poetic, O’Brien says.

The exhibit is supported by Associated Students Inc.
