PBSC Fine Arts Faculty exhibit opens at the Cultural Council Gallery
The Humanities Division of Palm Beach State College has teamed up with the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County to showcase the work of 18 Fine Arts faculty at the Cultural Council Gallery in downtown Lake Worth.
The exhibit opens on Sept. 13 and runs through Nov. 9. It is free and open to the public. A special student and staff opening reception will be held from from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sept. 14 at the Gallery located at 601 Lake Ave. The exhibit includes the artwork of faculty who teach at the three campuses offering fine arts classes – Lake Worth, Boca Raton and Palm Beach Gardens. The participating artists are: Leslie D. Albert, Jessica Amaral, Dogan Arslanoglu, Jacques De Beaufort, Joshua Hunter Davis, Nazare Feliciano, Vernon Grant, Kristin Miller Hopkins, Vincent Lardieri, Charlotte Maloney, Victoria Martin, Gerald O’Sullivan, Samantha Salzinger, Sherry Stephens, Wayne Stephens, Bridgit Stoffer, Heidi Tuby, and Adrienne Turk.
The exhibit is dedicated to Vernon Grant, associate dean of humanities at the Lake Worth campus, in appreciation of his decades of outstanding leadership, generosity and commitment to faculty, students and staff. Grant is retiring in December after 20 years, including as a professor and chairperson.
The Humanities Department offers a wide range of fine and performing arts education exploring and understanding what it means to be a creative and expressive individual while expanding skills and knowledge and enriching lives. The department is equally as dedicated to a collaborative effort between faculty and students to enhance the quality of our students’ arts education.
All of the Fine Arts faculty members are practicing artists working in a wide range of media from traditional painting and drawing to sculpture, ceramics, photography and digital media. They exhibit their work nationally and internationally. In addition to their own practices, they share a dedication and commitment to sharing their experiences and knowledge with their students and encouraging them in their pursuit of their skills and craft.
