Published on: March 04, 2014

LSC-Kingwood to Host GCIC ArtistsLSC-Kingwood’s PAC Main Stage will be the site of a visiting artist lecture sponsored by the Gulf Coast Intercollegiate Consortium (GCIC), on Thursday, March 20, from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center, 20000 Kingwood Drive. The GCIC is a partnership among the music and visual art departments of 16 community colleges in the greater Houston area. The member colleges of the GCIC host events throughout the academic year that feature nationally and internationally known performing and visual artists. GCIC also co-sponsors guest clinicians, portfolio reviewers, and juried student competitions with its members.

Artists Laura Spector and Chadwick Gray, the featured guests, are best known for their work, “Museum Anatomy”, a collection of photographs in which they created 19th century paintings on the human body. The Houston-based photographers combine 19th century masterpieces and body painting into eye-catching homages to classical artwork.

This is the second day of a two-day event. Spector and Chadwick will first present at San Jacinto College on Tuesday, March 18 at Academic Hall at 9:30 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. San Jacinto College South is located at 13735 Beamer Road. For more information contact Dixon Bennett at 281-998-4627.
