O’Donnell’s ‘New Work’ on display

For immediate release: June 10, 2016

BLOOMSBURG — “New Work” by Sue O’Donnell, associate professor of graphic design at Bloomsburg University, will be exhibited in BU’s Haas Gallery of Art from June 24 to Sept. 21. The exhibit will close Wednesday, Sept. 21, with a reception from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and an artist lecture at 1:15 p.m.

O’Donnell’s “New Work” continues her exploration of memory and truth through constructions using images and storytelling that are plotted and diagrammed as maps, timelines and graphic displays.

“My work questions choices and recurring patterns and trends through observation,” she said. “What I hope to reveal is not an ultimate truth, but a deeper understanding of the way we process our memories by tracking the connections we all have within ourselves and with each other.”

O’Donnell, who joined the BU faculty in 2007, teaches digital art, and graphic print and book design. She earned a Master of Fine Arts in Visual Arts from Purchase College in 2002 after working as a freelance designer and digital consultant for CEPA Gallery, Buffalo, N.Y.

The Haas Gallery is open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Bloomsburg University is one of 14 universities in Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education. The university serves approximately 10,000 students, offering comprehensive programs of study in the colleges of Education, Business, Liberal Arts and Science and Technology.
