Art professor selected to exhibit locally and internationally
Professor Mary Visser, Herman Brown Chair holder and Vice President of Ars Mathmatica of Paris, France was invited to exhibit her artwork Hera’s Women in Movement in the “Rapid2013 Sculpture” exhibition at the Contemporary Art Gallery in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania this past June. The Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) introduced the Contemporary Art Gallery in 2010 and dedicated it to creativity and design in 3D printing. Internationally known artists familiar with 3D modeling software and additive 3D printing processes are selected to display their work.
Also this summer Professor Visser exhibited her sculptural work in the “HAND, EYE, and MIND,” an exhibition of 3D printed artworks focusing on Sensory and Tactile Models for Holistic Learning at the Experimental Arts Gallery at The India Habitat Centre in New Delhi, India. Examples of the work in the exhibition can be viewed here.
Visser also participated in “INTERSCULPT 2013,” the 20th Year exhibition and celebration of digital sculpture in Paris, France sponsored by the Association of French Rapid Prototyping and the European Forum on Additive Manufacturing.
