NLC Faculty Art Show Highlights Active Artists

New exhibit opens October 11

IRVING, Texas-
North Lake College (NLC) presents the Faculty Art Show, October 11- November 13, 2012, in the Central Campus Gallery. The artists reception will be held Tuesday, October 16 at 7:30 p.m.
 
The 2012 Faculty Art Show includes work by twelve NLC faculty members. All active in their field, these faculty artists can be found in exhibits across the state, including Art Program Head Marty Ray. Co-founder of The White Rock Lake Studio Artists Studio Tour, Ray is preparing for the event’s 20th anniversary tour. D Magazine calls her ceramic art “unmistakably modern” and “moving.”
 
While NLC’s Faculty Art Show displays the talents of its educators, the show also highlights the college’s continued commitment to the arts. Training tomorrow’s innovators, North Lake views creativity as a key hiring factor. In fact, the college recently combined their Arts and Technology divisions- including performing, studio and technical arts.
 
“With the support of involved faculty, small class sizes, state-of-the art facilities and affordable class offerings, North Lake students create and communicate in new and inventive ways,” says NLC Gallery Director Steven Benezue. “Our foundational courses prepare artists for today’s competitive workforce.”
 
Benezue also welcomes the Faculty Art Show as a chance to share art with the community- an ingredient, he explains, to the sense of family at North Lake College.  “The show lets the students see the studio work of their teachers,” says Benezue. “It is also a good place for the faculty to see one another’s artwork. We are busy teaching and rarely get the opportunity.”
