The A & C FACULTY EXHIBITION 2010 is an extraordinary opportunity to view the artwork of a faculty who have dedicated their teaching efforts in the department to educating artists whose work is specifically aimed at effecting transformation through the artistic process. As a group of vibrant and contemporary artists, they hold the collective belief that the arts have the power to transform society - the individual, the community, the culture and the environment.

 

Exhibitors include: 

Tommy Becker – a video artist who has been called “a poet trapped in a camcorder”. 

 

Seth Eisen – a performance and visual artist  who explores the arts of Butoh, puppetry, clowning, drag, musical theater and video through performance, installation, book arts, fetish objects and costume art.

 

Peter London an artist educator,  an active studio artist who also has taught and lectured in art, art education and art therapy for over forty years and who has authored Drawing Closer to Nature, No More Second Hand Art and Community Based Art Education plus many other articles.

 

Margaret Lindsey – a life-long artist, educator and facilitator who practices painting and teaching as a means to facilitate the evolution of human consciousness;

 

Jeremy Morgan a painter whose work grows from a contemplation of the fusion of both conceptual and perceptual models.  The paintings become pivotal points between internal feeling and external stimuli; a meeting place of the material and non-material;

 

Sharon Siskin a recipient of numerous awards and grants who is a highly recognized leader in the field of community – based public art as well as an active artist, teacher and lecturer through out the United States;

 

Mary Hull Webster – a digital and installation artist, author, teacher and video artist who works with clusters of ideas or inquiries in long -term projects across many media;

 

Nina Wise an award winning performance artist who is known for her provocative and original performance works which have been produced in the United States and abroad and who is also the author of the book entitled A Big New Free Happy Unusual Life.
