Art faculty showcases their artwork in the Fine Arts Building
Art faculty can talk all day in the classroom, but can they back up their words with their own work? That is what the new exhibit in the Fine Art Gallery has set out to prove.
Members of the SC4 art faculty are showcasing their work in the Fine Arts Gallery through Oct. 28 under the show title, “Collectively Independent.”
“The name is a depiction of our department and how we all collaborate and work as a team without losing our independence in the process,” said Celeste Skalnek, executive coordinator of the humanities division.
Faculty featured in “Collectively Independent” include: Lloyd Eddy, Jill Rowan, Holly Pennington, Biz Knapp, Sarah Slobodzian, Mike Bladow, and Alfred Gay.
“Collectively Independent” represents almost every member of the art department and presents multiple mediums including ceramic, woodcut, graphite, and oil.
According to Skalnek, every year SC4’s art department sets out to host a faculty exhibit. Last year’s show was a one woman exhibit by Jill Rowan, titled “Transitions.”
“These exhibits not only confirm the talent of our master artist instructors, but allow the students the opportunity to study the works presented as part of their curriculum,” said Skalnek.
The reception for “Collectively Independent” will fall on Thursday, Oct. 17, 4-8 p.m., and will include light refreshments. It will also coincide with “An Evening of Shel Silverstien” at 5:30 p.m., a collection of short plays by the SC4 Players.
Students who show their Skipper I.D. cards will receive free admission the play. The event is open to anyone wishing to attend.
