Art & Design

Art & Design Department

The Art & Design Department of Campbellsville University provides visual learners with an undergraduate B.F.A (Bachelors of Fine Arts) professional degree or B.A (Bachelor of Arts) degree in the context of a Christian liberal arts environment. The B.F.A and B.A programs preparers the student for careers in art production, art education, graphic design, 3D animation, fine art, illustration, and graduate school for further studies such as studio art, animation, art therapy, arts administration, arts history, art education, and museum studies among others. The department provides a survey course for undergraduates in visual art which strives to teach understanding of arts language, art from different periods as well as from diverse cultures. Another goal of the department is to produce visually literate individuals. This is accomplished through close interaction and instruction from a department composed of three full-time professors who are assisted by adjunct faculty with specialized areas of expertise.

Davie Renean
Associate Professor of Art
B.F.A. Western Kentucky University
M.F.A. West Virginia University

Historically, Davie’s pots have always involved the rituals of food presentation and storage. She began to make vases that were more concerned with surface textures and relationships of forms that were directly inspired by the lush femaleness of Kentucky’s farmland. She began to make utilitarian forms that stack when not in use to form blossom-like sculptural objects. The straight lines in the liquor sets are reminiscent of the vertical planks in barns juxtaposed against the sensual curves of hills. It seemed that images from her past had begun to trickle into her work like Marc Chagall’s painting “I and the Village.”
