MJC presents Faculty Reunited Art Exhibition

(Modesto, CA) –The Modesto Junior College Visual Arts Club presents Faculty Reunited! Art Exhibition from September 3 through September 26 in the MJC Art Gallery on East Campus, 435 College Avenue. The show is free and the Gallery is open Monday through Wednesday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Thursday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

A reception with the artists and members of the Visual Arts Club will be held on Thursday, September 12, 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Gallery. The public is invited to come learn what has inspired the faculty of MJC’s Art Department and what advice they have to pass on to their students. Refreshments will be served.

This is MJC’s first faculty art show in four years and the theme represents a reunification of the Art Department’s faculty. The exhibit showcases the work of MJC tenured faculty members Deborah Barr-Brayman, Paul Berger, Tom Duchscher, Joel Hagen, Haleh Niazmand, Richard Serros, Rob Stevenson, and adjunct faculty members Noah Wilson, Randy Kirksey, Todd McClintock, Tinna Savini and Linda Salmon.

“This talented group of artists has not only guided students in the classroom for years, but has also produced inspirational works of art in a wide range of styles such as expressionist, futurist, minimalist, and surrealist,” said Richard Serros, professor of art.

The content of the displayed works ranges from iconic to narratives to non-objectivity in a variety of mediums including printmaking, graphic art, oil paintings, watercolor paintings, acrylic paintings, as well as sculptures of metal, wood, paper, and ceramics.

For more information contact the MJC Art Gallery at 575-6819.
