Kellogg Community College will display art created by the college’s Arts and Communication faculty members as part of the KCC Faculty Biennial Art Exhibition Feb. 11 through March 22.

The exhibit will be free and open to the public for viewing and will be located in the Eleanor R. & Robert A. DeVries Gallery in the Davidson Visual and Performing Arts Center on KCC’s North Avenue campus. An opening reception for the exhibit will be held at the gallery from 4 to 6 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 14.

KCC art professor and DeVries Gallery coordinator Ryan Flathau said he expects the exhibit to showcase the works of approximately 10 artists representing multiple visual arts disciplines, which in the past have included painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics, photography, mixed-media, animation, textile and craft arts.

“The exhibition showcases the talents of Kellogg Community College faculty in an effort to emphasize for students and the community that these instructors are practicing artists as well as educators,” Flathau said.

The faculty exhibit will immediately follow an exhibit of student and community works entered in KCC’s third annual Diversity Art Contest, which will be displayed in the gallery through the contest awards ceremony beginning at noon Monday, Feb. 4.
