The Union Art Gallery, located on the second floor of the recently renovated LSU Student Union, will present its Peter Shire exhibit, titled Peter Shire: A World of Geometrics. This exhibition will explore the many talents of the renowned and idiosyncratic designer. Shire’s whimsical, postmodern style defies traditional categorization, incorporating elements of Futurism, Art Nouveau, and Art Deco. His often utilitarian sculptures have been exhibited in the United States as well as Italy, France, and Japan. Shire will also be on hand to give an informal tour of the exhibit during an opening reception on Sunday, February 3 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. The Union Art Gallery’s exhibit will be on display February 3-24. more info

For the first time ever, a trio of LSU’s art galleries will join forces to present a three-part retrospective featuring the works of internationally renowned artist and designer Peter Shire.
The LSU Museum of Art, the LSU School of Art’s Alfred C. Glassell Jr. Exhibition Gallery and the LSU Student Union Art Gallery – working with the LSU College of Art & Design and the Department of Interior Design – will each hold respective exhibits as part of a program which presents an overall, in-depth study of Shire’s work over the past four decades.
The entire retrospective is set to run at various lengths between the three venues from Jan. 31 through April 14.
