HAMMOND – The Visual Arts Department faculty is inviting administrators, faculty, staff, students and friends to a reception for Covington resident Gail Hood, associate professor of visual arts, who will retire this month.

      An exhibition of Hood's work and a short reception will be held in the Contemporary Art Gallery on Thursday, May 4, from 4:30-6 p.m.

      For two decades, Hood has taught drawing, painting, design and art history in the Department of Visual Arts. She also is a former director of the department's Clark Hall Gallery.

      Hood earned her bachelor's degree from Carleton College in Northfield, Minn., and her Master of Fine Arts degree from Columbia University. She also studied at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Rouen, France, the Pratt Institute, the Art Institute of Chicago and Tulane University.

      “Gail will be greatly missed," said Department Head Dennis Sipiorski. “We invite everyone to attend the reception and exhibit in her honor and to join us in wishing her well.”
