Camarillo, Calif., March 12, 2012 – The CSU Channel Islands (CI) Art Program is pleased to announce the inaugural exhibition of its annual Art Faculty Dialogues Series featuring works by Liz King, Associate Professor of Art. “Visual Symphonies, Digital Narratives,” will be on view in the John Spoor Broome Library Gallery April 2 - May 20, 2012. A free public reception and artist presentation will be held on Thursday, April 19, 4:30 - 6pm.

The Art Faculty Dialogues Series is an annual exhibition held during the spring semester, which showcases the work of art faculty and exposes in innovative ways the individuals, sources, and factors that fuel their creativity and influence their art.
 
“Visual Symphonies, Digital Narratives,” includes drawings, prints and digital media works which explore diverse issues ranging from the human condition to the links between art and science in what the artist calls an “experimental artistic framework.” Vacillating between rigorous, objective research and an intense, personal involvement,  King has developed a novel visual lexicon of sinuous lines, irregular patterns, and biomorphic shapes interrupted by subtle, yet recognizable signs that form a magical realm and generate a contemplative mood.

King has shown her art in numerous juried exhibitions throughout the United States and Europe, including at the Los Angeles Center for Digital Art, Val du Grace Gallery, Paris, France, Santa Barbara Printmakers, Ojai Center for the Arts, and on the CI campus in Napa Hall and the Broome Gallery.
 
CSU Channel Islands is located at One University Drive, Camarillo.  The Art Gallery in the Broome Library is located on the second floor. Hours are Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Friday and Saturday 10a.m. to 5p.m., and Sunday 1 to 5 p.m. For additional information contact the Art Program, at 805-437-8570 or visit art@csuci.edu.
