Faculty Exhibit at Northwest Vista College

I had the privilege of curating the Faculty Art Exhibition this year at Northwest Vista College.  The show was on display from March through April in the Palmetto Center for the Arts and showcased the wide variety of work produced by our teaching artists.  Painting, drawing, silkscreen, collage, digital, weaving, mixed media, ceramic & sculpture dotted the halls and courtyard of the building.  Alongside each artist's work, I included a brief bio and artist statement so students could learn more about what they were viewing.

This exhibition varied from the others I have done in the past, as it allowed students a chance to see what their own instructors create outside the classroom.  Student writer Austin P. Taylor interviewed myself and several colleagues about the exhibition.  He wrote a great article titled Putting Theory Into Practice for The Ranger, our college paper.

Check out the artist statements and bios here.   

The large, turquoise ceramic vessels on the left are by Diana Kersey; the mixed media drawings on the right are by Jimena Marin

Raquel Beechner's triptych features Mayan characters as a family unit with "adapted glyphs to return to the roots of my own culture" (Beechner).  My paintings can be seen to the right; the diptych with grackles was hot off the easel for this exhibition (24 x 30" each).

Paul Northway's ceramics; learn more about them here.

Jimena Marin's mixed media works, inspired by her vegan cooking.
