WSU's Art Department will host "Re-veiled" an exhibition featuring work by three emerging artists: Andrew Musil, Cassandra Bush and Renee Springer through Sept. 16.
A panel discussion with the artists will be held at 4 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 2, in Stark 103. An opening reception will follow at 4 p.m. in the gallery.
The exhibition will include paintings, Van Dyke prints, video projections, and works on paper. The artists all play with the idea of veiling, from layers of color applied on top of each other to contemporary variations of the famous shroud of turin and the idea of unveiling problematic standards of consumption in our society.

Richard Bowman, education, published a manuscript titled "Faculty Meetings: Hidden Conversational Dynamics" in The Clearing House: Educational Strategies, Issues, and Ideas, 88: 141-145, Fall 2015. The paper identifies conversational practices which affect how colleagues connect, engage, interact, and influence others in faculty meetings. Video game systems and high-trust faculty meetings exhibit a common, unmistakable ambience: clarity of task, awareness of roles and responsibilities, choice in problem-solving strategies, unambiguous feedback, and freedom from fear of reprisal, ridicule, or rejection.
Jennifer Cochran-Biederman, biology, was a coauthor on a poster titled "Recent and Historical Trends in Brown Trout Growth in Southeast Minnesota Streams" presented at the 145th Annual Meeting of the American Fisheries Society in Portland, Ore., in August 2015.
