Guests mingled over cheese and wine while taking in some art at the Art Department’s reception for its biennial Faculty Art Exhibit, held at the Lehman College Art Gallery on September 18. The exhibit, which closes on September 26, includes works by full-time members of the faculty as well as adjuncts.
The installation features a broad spectrum of work, ranging from paintings, ceramics, print-making generated by traditional and unconventional techniques, digital animation, sculpture produced by traditional and digital means, classic wet-darkroom photography, large-scale digital photography, and a multimedia site sculpture.
“The range of creative disciplines and skills shown here match the scope and variety of styles and techniques of the New York art world,” says Professor Flavia Bacarella, chair of the Art Department.
Across from the faculty installation is Offerings of Light: Paintings and Studies by Theo Stavropoulos (1930-2007). Stavropoulos taught in the Art Department for twenty-five years. Hosted by the Art Department, the exhibit includes his paintings and studies from six decades of work up until a few months before his death in 2007.
Stavropoulos’ work can be found in private and public collections, including the Musee d’Art Moderne, Paris; Marion Koogler McNay Art Institute; Remington Rand Company; and the National Broadcasting Company.
Full-time faculty: Flavia Bacarella, John Belardo, Melissa Brown, Paul Carrellas, Michael Ferraro, David Gillison, Sean McCarthy, David Schwittek, Charles Seplowin, Janet Skolnik, Dannielle Tegeder, and Terry Towery.
Adjunct faculty include Nadeige Choplet, Sarah Corbin, Katy Fischer, Kevin Ford, Susan Hoeltzel, Christine Mariani, Livia Nieves, Amy Westpfahl, Robert Wurzburg, and the Associate Dean of Arts and Humanities, Gina Dominique Hersey.
The Lehman College Art Gallery is open Tuesday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
