LSC-Kingwood Faculty Displays Recent Work at Fall Art Show

Published on: August 12, 2013

Adjunct art professor Julon Pinkston's collage is one of several pieces that will be on display at the Faculty Art Show.

Various art pieces will be on display at Lone Star College-Kingwood's annual Fall Faculty Art Show. The show will run from Aug. 28-Sept. 25 in the college's Fine Arts Gallery.

The Faculty Art Show is designed to showcase recent work of current 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 2014.

"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 at this year's Faculty Art Show will include painting, drawing, installations, ceramics, collage and photography. Professors who will showcase their pieces are Adela Andea, Gerard Baldwin, Jay Calder, Cory Cryer, Joe Kagle, Divya Murthy, Mari Omori, Julon Pinkston, Rebecca Riley, Scott Rosenberg and Abi Semtner.

"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.

The Faculty Art Show reception and refreshments will be held Sept. 5 from 12-1:30 p.m. in the Fine Arts Gallery.

LSC-Kingwood's Fine Arts Gallery is located in the Performing Arts Center. The gallery is open Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. and is closed on the weekends. For more information on the Faculty Art Show or on future art exhibitions, contact Kris Larson at kc.artgallery@LoneStar.edu.
