Annual Parkland Art Faculty Exhibition
- August 23 - September 24, 1999
The annual "Parkland Art Faculty Exhibit" opened Monday August 23 and continued through Friday, September 24. Several new faculty members, Laura O'Donnell, Peggy Shaw, Joan Stolz, and Paul Young, exhibited with the gallery for the first time. Students and the community as a whole enjoyed seeing the art work that encompassed the broad spectrum of art courses and media available at Parkland. It was a chance to look at what the faculty have been creating outside the class room. Viewers had the opportunity to see the caliber of instructors in the Parkland Art Department and recognize the faculty as professional artists.
This exhibit benefits both students and teachers - giving an opportunity for students to become familiar with their instructor's work and offering a forum for instructors to experiment with their craft. These experimental works serve as a reminder to students that exploration is an important part of being an artist.
Participating artists included Louis Ballard, Chris Berti, Jodie Bowen, Ann Coddington Rast, John Ekstrom, Juanita Gammon, Robert Laible, Don Lake, Sally McMahan, Craig McMonigal, Laura O'Donnell, George Rehrey, Denise Seif, Peggy Shaw, Joan Stolz, and Paul Young.
Programs at the Parkland Art Gallery are partially supported by Parkland College Student Activities. This program is partially sponsored by an Illinois Arts Council Grant.
