Art & Design Faculty Exhibition

August 18 – September 18, 2008

  • Reception: Thursday, August 21 from 6 - 8 p.m., gallery lounge
  • Live music by Stoncrik

The Annual Faculty Art Exhibition features work by faculty of the Parkland College’s Fine and Applied Art faculty in Art and Design. Media include sculpture, photography, metals, wood, oil, watercolor, digital media, ceramics, and more.

The artists' reception will be hosted by the Parkland College Foundation and will be held on Thursday, August 21. This event will be a great opportunity to view the work and mingle with the artists. Matthew Watt will speak about his work in the exhibit at 7 pm. Live music by Stoncrik will also be a part of the evening’s festivities and refreshments will be served. The College and local communities are encouraged to attend and, as always, the reception is free and open to the public.

This year’s exhibition features works by approximately 20 studio art and design faculty in media as diverse as painting, photography, drawing, metals, sculpture, digital, ceramics, and design as well as mixed media. Drawing from such a diverse range of specialty areas, the faculty exhibition features something for everyone. Students and the community as a whole will enjoy the work, which mirrors the broad spectrum of art courses available at Parkland College. Among the faculty participating in this year’s show are Louis Ballard, Chris Berti, Lisa Costello, Marsha Daniels, Jennifer Davis, Shane Harris, John Havlik, Steven Hudson, Jamie Kruidenier, Robert Laible, Gina Manola, Miriam Martincic, Melinda McIntosh, Craig McMonigal, Laura O’Donnell, Denise Seif, Peggy Shaw, Phil Smith, Joan Stolz, Matthew Watt, Kelly White and Paul Young.

High Noon with the Artist on Thursdays
A series of art lectures has been planned to coincide with the exhibit. This programming is designed to allow faculty from selected areas to discuss their work more in-depth. These lectures begin at noon and will be held in the gallery. Depending on the question and answer portion, these events should be about a half an hour to forty-five minutes in length. Paul Young, Graphic Design Professor, will speak about his work on September 4th. Jamie Kruidenier, part-time Instructor of watercolor, will give a lecture about her work on September 18th.
