Biennial art spotlight returns with 2019 SPSCC Faculty and Staff Exhibition

Thursday, September 5, 2019

SPSCC students and the community at large now have the opportunity to peek into the art studios of the college’s staff and faculty.

The Faculty and Staff Exhibition comes to the gallery at SPSCC every other year—this year it features new two- and three-dimensional works by art faculty and staff, including Sean Barnes, Joe Batt, Liza Brenner, Colleen Gallagher, Nicole Gugliotti, Lisa Mellinger, Dan Meuse, Edgar Smith, and Bruce Thompson. Their creations pull from a variety of inspirations and media, and the display features paintings, woven photographs, and clay works, including Gugliotti’s ceramics game “The Weight of Privilege,” made in collaboration with North Carolina artist Mac McCusker.

The exhibition will be open to the public at The Gallery at the Kenneth J. Minnaert Center for the Arts from Sept. 2 to 27, with a special closing reception on the Sept. 27 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Admission is free, and The Gallery is open from noon to 6 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.
