An exhibition featuring works by Barton College Art and Design faculty is now on display in the new “Art Gallery” in the library, located on the first floor between the side wall of the Office of Student Success and the side glassed-in wall of the Library Technology Classroom. (You’ll be able to recognize it by the new “Art Gallery” sign suspended from the ceiling.)
The new gallery allows us to augment our ability to showcase art in addition to the already-existing art display area near the elevator on the first floor.
This current exhibition features the following pieces of faculty art:
- Susan Fecho, Chair of Barton’s Department of Art and Design, has a new series of prints on display that she created at Penland School of Crafts this summer. The work is based on her response to the immediate landscape environment.
- Mark Gordon, Associate Professor of Art, has a selection of ceramic pieces on display.
- Gerard Lange, Associate Professor of Art, has two photographs from his series of Wilson County on exhibit.
- Maureen O’Neill, Visiting Professor of Art and Director of Exhibitions and Education Programming, has on display a pastel drawing of the Barton College Ceramic Studio, which was done this summer as part of a series.
This exhibit is the first of many planned for this new “Art Gallery” in the library. Please come by at your leisure and enjoy these creative works by some of our very own Barton colleagues.
