The Design Gallery at The Warehouse, an exhibition space of the Department of Design in Syracuse University’s College of Visual and Performing Arts (VPA), announces two exhibitions in February. Both shows are free and open to the public. The gallery is located on the first floor of The Warehouse, 350 W. Fayette St., Syracuse. Gallery hours are daily, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.

The Odegard Award for Excellence in Rug Design Competition Exhibition Tour is currently on view through Feb. 17. This exhibition is the result of a competition created and sponsored by Odegard Inc. to show student designers how combining modern designs with traditional hand-knotting techniques can increase awareness and respect for the legacy of textile and carpet weaving. Odegard received submissions from more than 400 students at universities and colleges across the country. VPA alumna Chelsea Bush ’10 received the Stephen Burks Jury Award in the competition.

The second show, “Pr-int-erface: Ornamentation on Textiles” will be on view Feb. 4-17 and feature work by students of design faculty members Eileen Gosson and Jan Navales. The methods of printing on textiles have evolved though the accessibility of technological devices. Traditional screen printing has given way to digital printing, and the surface pattern design industry has changed. This exhibition highlights student experiences in understanding the differences and similarities inherent in each process and end result.
