Published 5:22 pm Thursday, February 20, 2014

Albert Einstein was once quoted saying, “It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.” The Longwood Center for the Visual Arts will bring that quote to life as they fill their galleries with recent works by Longwood University faculty members. An opening reception of the 2014 Longwood University Department of Theatre, Art, and Graphic Design Faculty Exhibition will be held on February 21 from 5 – 7 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.

The show features paintings, photography, books arts, mixed media, printmaking, stained glass, graphic design, drawing, and ceramics and will be open through March 29. Faculty members with works on display include: Mark Baldridge, K. Johnson Bowles, Ann Bradshaw, John S. J. Burke, Kerri Cushman, Jon Duff, Randy Edmonson, Wade Lough, Michael Mergen, Kelly Nelson, Adam Paulek, Jessica Peterson, Christopher M. Register, and Homer Springer.

“Having a variety of mediums and concepts in the exhibit speaks to the many different approaches to the creative process,” said Exhibitions Manager, Alex Grabiec ’07. “Whether it is in the classroom, or in their studio, the faculty’s commitment to education, and to their art, is showcased here.”
