 Erie Art Museum displays SRU student, faculty works

Art pieces by three Slippery Rock University students and a faculty member are on display at the Erie Art Museum’s 88th Annual Spring Show that continues through June 26. The museum received 593 submissions from 304 artists living within 250 miles of Erie and selected 90 pieces for the exhibit.


Josh Emery, an art major from Mercer, entered a print titled “Heimweh 2”; Crystal Nath, an art major from Pittsburgh, entered a bronze cast titled “Goldfish Ring”; and David Swan, an art major from North East, entered a brass sculpture titled “And So She Said.”

June Edwards, SRU associate professor of art, entered a digital and media piece titled “Fragments VI.”

Mark Newport, a multi-disciplinary artist, juried the submissions. “My process for selecting work was to look for work that reflected the artist’s idiosyncratic view of the world,” he said. “When artists reveal their particular passions, whether it confirms or challenges something I believe, I think it is a fascinating and generous gift.”

The museum is at 411 State St. For more information, call 814.459.5477.
