Visual artists are in the transformation business. In their hands, clay or metal takes on the shape of living thing or colorful geometry or table utensil both useful and beautiful. Pigments, fabrics, and textures coalesce to represent that which already exists or to chart new combinations of the abstract and the concrete. Light framed and focused captures the visible and recreates it. Computer codes and aggregate pixels yield paintings without paint, drawings without ink or charcoal. This catalogue provides a guide, index, and souvenir of the latest transformations wrought by the faculty of our Department of Art. In turn, of course, the catalog transforms works of different sizes and media into photograph and text on the 9 by 5 printed page. That is why it accompanies the exhibition but can never replace it. I hope that you will read these pages as you would a map, and then go explore what Robert Lyon and our gifted faculty artists have created.
