The Lone Star College-Tomball art gallery is featuring an exhibition of fall 2013 semester art faculty now through December 3. Each of exhibition’s six instructors is a practicing artist, teaching a variety of fine arts classes at LSC-Tomball. The event is free and open to the public Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Richard A. Carnley has been teaching at LSC-Tomball for two years. His work is about social and political activism, and his medium of choice is etching. His small, detailed works are compelling, mysterious and visually tactile on their two-dimensional print surface.
Christopher Carver has taught at LSC-Tomball for three years, as well as teaching at Houston Community College and the Art Institute. He feels art is a participatory experience; he works with the surprise of those who see his work, using it as an entry point to explore his themes.
Steffani Frideres has been teaching photography, drawing and graphic art classes at LSC Tomball for 13 years as a full-time art professor. Her work is printed on silver gelatin silver prints. The subject matter is simulated fantasy landscapes from “found” household objects.
Michael McGinley has taught art history and art appreciation at LSC-Tomball for 11 years, and has recently branched out into digital photography. His current work is about local musicians and recording their movement and passion in creating their sounds.
Ilona Paul has been teaching at LSC-Tomball for the last two years, and has worked with clay for over 25 years. She loves to cook and make dishes specifically for food, and vice versa. She feels eating on handmade dishes is a pleasing, down-to-earth experience.
Bernice Peacock has been with the LSC-Tomball for 11 years. She’s also taught at Houston Community College and the Art Institute. Her eclectic, colorful paintings are heavily influenced by Surrealism, one of which was exhibited at the Lawndale Art Center’s annual The Big Show.
The LSC-Tomball art gallery is next to the Beckendorf Conference Center, located at 30555 Tomball Parkway (off State Highway 249 and Zion Road). For more information, contact Steffani Frideres at 281.401.1808 or Steffani.A.Frideres@lonestar.edu.
