MCCC Gallery Faculty Exhibit Now Open

“WONDER WOMAN”: A ceramic piece by Ingrid Jordan is among the works featured in the “2017 MCCC Visual Arts Faculty Exhibit,” on display at the Mercer County Community College Gallery through September 28. An opening reception takes place August 30 from 5 to 7 p.m.

The Gallery at Mercer County Community College (MCCC) puts its own faculty in the spotlight for the “2017 MCCC Visual Arts Faculty Exhibit.” The show runs through Thursday, September 28. The community is invited to an opening reception on Wednesday, August 30 from 5 to 7 p.m. The gallery is located on the second floor of the Communications Building on the college’s West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road.

The show features approximately 20 works by full-time and adjunct faculty members. The programs represented in the exhibit include Visual Arts, Photography and Digital Imaging, Advertising/Graphic Design, Ceramics, and Digital Media Arts.

Among the participating faculty members are Michael Chovan-Dalton, Ingrid Jordan, Lucas Kelly, Jared Kramer, Tina LaPlaca, Paul Mordetsky, Kerri O’Neill, Mircea Popescu, Lauren Rabinowitz, Rachel Stern, Kyle Stevenson, Michael Welliver, and Mauro Zamora.

According to Gallery Director Lucas Kelly, MCCC Professor of Fine Arts, the faculty show is an opportunity for students to see the fruits of their professors’ studio practice.

“Professors maintain their professional practice while also working with students in the classroom. Both parts of this duality inform each other. Seldom does a professor’s studio work enter the classroom, but it is their experience that moves the curriculum forward. The faculty show offers the students a chance to pull back that veil and see how their professors solve the problem of art-making in contemporary culture,” said Mr. Kelly.

Gallery hours for the show are Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and Wednesdays, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. For more information, visit
