Lone Star College-Kingwood’s annual Fall Faculty Art Show opens Monday, Aug. 25 and will run until Sept. 30 in the college Fine Arts Gallery.
The Faculty Art Show is designed to showcase recent work of art faculty members and to promote art classes offered at LSC-Kingwood. Select art pieces will be for sale and a portion of the proceeds will go toward the Art Scholarship Fund to be presented at the juried Student Art Show in summer 2015.
“The art show gives faculty members a chance to display new work. It also gives students an opportunity to see the different kinds of instruction and studio art courses that are offered here,” said Kris Larson, gallery coordinator.
Works on display at this year’s Faculty Art Show will include painting, drawing, ceramics, collage and photography. Professors who will showcase their work are Adela Andea, Gerard Baldwin, Cory Cryer, Joe Kagle, and Mari Omori.
“This richly varied show engages students and the public alike as it draws attention to the many avenues of possibility that are open to visual artists,” Larson said.
A reception will be held Sept. 4 from 12-2 p.m. in the Fine Arts Gallery, with an artist talk at 12:30 by Mari Omori. Refreshments will be served.
All gallery events are free and open to the public. 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.
