Hardhats aren’t needed. Just bring your visual toolbox to explore “Under Construction,” the 2016 Pensacola State College Art Faculty and Staff Exhibition that just opened at the Anna Lamar Switzer Center for Visual Arts, Building 15, on the Pensacola campus.
The public is invited to visit the show through Dec. 14 and meet the artists at a reception from 6 to 8 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 10. Admission is free. Parking is available between the Switzer Center and the PSC Planetarium, Building 21.
In celebration of the Charles W. Lamar Studio being built adjacent to the Switzer Center, “Under Construction” displays select works from 24 professional artists and gives students and the community a look into their creative process.
The exhibition also features works in memory of Visual Arts Professor David Hinds who passed away unexpectedly in July 2016. From the time he joined the PSC faculty in 1983 until his retirement in 2014, Hinds was a respected artist and beloved teacher who shared his passion for art history with students at PSC while also continuing with his original artwork.
A perennial favorite, the annual art faculty exhibition includes ceramics, drawing, digital imaging, graphic design, jewelry, painting, photography, sculpture and video.
PSC Visual Arts faculty and staff participating in the show are Michael Boles, Michelle Cornejo, Bill Clover, Larry Lou Foster, Mark Francis, Marilyn Givens, Mark Hopkins, Julie McGrath, Andrea Moon, Devon Murphy, Linh O’Briant, Allan Peterson, Kristen Regan-Miller, Doug Reiser, Patricia Reppenhagen, Caitlin Rhea, Jimmy Rhea, Kelly Schmidt, Vivian Spencer, Warren Thompson, Ben Twingley, Holly Vaughn, Christopher White and Paula Work.
