California University of Pennsylvania’s Department of Art and Design is showcasing the artwork of its students, faculty, staff and alumni with “Dreams,’ an exhibition that will run from Nov. 1-9 in the Vulcan Gallery. The Gallery is located on the first floor of Vulcan Hall on campus.

Works in all media will be displayed; each piece explores the imagery of dreams and/or the workings of the subconscious mind.

Two entries per person are allowed, and all students, faculty, staff, and alumni are invited to submit their framed or matted creations. Deadline to submit is Oct. 29.

Students from Cal U advanced drawing and painting classes will be curating the show.

Prizes will be offered, and all artwork will be available for purchase. A panel of faculty judges will choose the award-winners during an opening reception hosted by the Associated Artists of California from 6-9 p.m. Nov. 1.

“We want the campus community to be involved, and especially our alumni,” said Maggy Aston, associate professor of Art and Design. “Often times students graduate from here and leave their artwork behind. We want them to stay in touch and keep their love of art going.”

“Dreams” will be on display from 8 a.m.-4 p.m, weekdays Nov. 2 through Nov. 9 in the Vulcan Gallery, inside Vulcan Hall. An opening reception at 6 p.m. Nov. 1 is free and open to the University community and the general public. The reception will include food and music.
