Lone Star College-Kingwood’s Fine Arts Gallery presents new works by the art faculty at the 2015 Fall Faculty Show on display from Sept. 14-Oct. 14.
The Faculty Art Show showcases recent work by professors Adela Andea, Gerard Baldwin, Aaron Bielish, Cory Cryer, Joe Kagle and Mari Omori. Included in this year’s show are ceramics, collage, painting and drawing, sculpture, and video installations.
This show is a great opportunity for students and the community to see our instructors’ work and connect with the different studio art courses offered at the college,” said Kris Larson, gallery director.
Kagle’s passion for teaching and collaboration are manifested in his exuberant collages that testify to a “less is more, except when more is better” mindset. Bielish combines photography and artificial intelligence in his cross-disciplinary series’ “Merge and Eyemusic.”
Also for this exhibit, Andea, known for her luminous installation work, expresses a fragile balance between nature and technology in “Ice Lumen”, a construction from plastics and LED lights. Omori will have two new video installations on view: one entitled “Eat, Drink, Live, Love” which is about culture and food and another called “After Image”, which features a diminishing bar of soap, filmed during the artist’s travels abroad.
An artist reception will be held Thursday, Sept. 24 at 12 p.m. in the Fine Arts Gallery. Baldwin will be available to sign copies of his newly released book that will be on sale, “From Mr. Magoo to Papa Smurf: A Memoir Gerard Baldwin”. Refreshments will be served.
LSC-Kingwood’s Fine Arts Gallery is located in the Performing Arts Center, room 114. The gallery is open Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m-5 p.m., and closed on weekends.
