Teachers will display their artwork in many different genres.
The art displayed at the College of the Canyons Art Gallery on Aug. 21, will be from professional artists who all have one thing in common: they have continued to practice their discipline while teaching it to others.
The COC Visual Arts Faculty Exhibition, which will open the gallery’s fall season, will feature the work of visual arts faculty members in the disciplines of photography, multimedia, interior design, sculpture, drawing, painting, ceramics, digital film presentations, radio, television and animation.
“Exhibitions featuring the college art faculty are a tradition at most colleges,” said Larry Hurst, the college’s art gallery director. “It is important for students to see the work of their instructors so that they can have a complete understanding of the professional qualifications these instructors bring to the classroom.”
The free exhibition will run from Aug. 21 to Sept. 13.
A reception will be held on Aug. 21 at 3 p.m. and is open to the public.
James Lorigan, chair of the college’s art department, will speak about the importance of maintaining a professional career and its impact in the classroom. A roundtable discussion will be held from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., and a reception will immediately follow.
Gallery hours are Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. during an exhibition.
