Page 34 The Tfiuwferfnrcf Monday , September 26, 1983 Permanent collection on display at gallery More than 50 gifts of paintings, prints and sculpture to Southern Utah State Colleges permanent art collection are included in the exhibit Gifts to the SUSC Permanent Art Collection which opened at the Braithwaite Fine Arts Gallery on Thursday, Sept. 8. Since the gallery opened in January, 1976, more than $250,000 in original art has been given to the college. According to Assistant Curator June Miller Adams, SUSC has been developing a permanent art collection since its founding in 1898. A creditable collection of over 500 objects valued at close to a half million dollars has been assembled including paintings, prints, ceramics, sculpture and textiles. These works are primarily by 19th and 20th century American artists with several objects by historical European and Asian artists. The collection is an invaluable-resourcfor educational and cultural development on campus and in the community," stated Adams. The Braithwaite Fine Arts Gallery provides ongoing curatorial care for the permanent art collection and exhibits it regularly throughout the campus where security is adequate. Selected objects from the collection are exhibited periodically in the gallery. Gifts included in the exhibit are works George C. Hales, Mr. Dick Held, Mr. and Mrs. Gary A. Higginson, Professor and Mrs. W. Wayne Kimball, Jr., Dr. and Mrs. Frederick P. Nause, Dr. and Mrs. Jack A. Rampton, Mr. and Mrs. Robert N. Sears, Dr. John L. Seymour and Mr. and Mrs. Erwin P. Thomys. These donors have made significant contributions to the quality and depth of the colleges collection, stated Adams. Without their generous gifts, the colleges collection would not include the many excellent works by these outstanding artists which we currently enjoy. The exhibit continues through Sept. 30 and the gallerys hours are 10 a.m. to to 6 5 p.m., 7 to 9 p.m. weekdays and p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Admission to the exhibit is free and gallery tours for groups are available with advance arrangements.

The gallery Million dollar mark passed in donations The one million dollar mark has been surpassed in donations received by Southern Utah State College this year. This tremendous increase in the level of donations to the college has gradually been increasing over the past few years. This year; however, the donations have more than tripled, Jack Bishop, director of development, said. The average yearly donation for the past five years was $307,799. This is the first time in the colleges history that the million dollar mark for donations has been reached. This increase represents regular donations in addition to donations we have received for the Special Events Center. The Special Events Center donations make up a good portion of the increase, but even if these donations were not included in the total, there would still be a notable increase, said Bishop. These donations have made it possible for the library to double its acquisitions in addition to helping the college in numerous other ways. There are many different types of donations people who would like to support the college can give, said Zelma Alger, Development Office secretary. Many donations do not come in the form of money. Gifts of kind are donations such as rock collections, TV time, weaving machines, pianos, and clothing -- MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 26 THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 29 9 Welcome back dance. Fieldhouse.

Deferred gifts can also be donated. These can be worked out in many ways, said Alger. For example, one donation of land was given as a deferred gift. The land was sold and the money is in the bank. For as long aS this person lives, he will receive a percentage of the interest collected on this money. Other people may choose to make arrangements to donate furniture or paintings. These The donated total has tripled. may be deducted from their taxes immediately. The contributor may continue to use the articles until he dies and then the college will use them. You never know what kinds of donations the college can use, said Bishop. We have received such things as paint, books, land, clothes, houses and even sand which was used for the preschool centers sand box. The college is truly indebted to the many individuals, businesses and organizations that have given so much, and as the college continues to grow, its success will in one way or another give back what has been put into it, said Bishop.
