While many art exhibits come through the Turk Fine Arts Center, none bridges the gap between student and instructor like the faculty art show.

Works by Larry Kitchen, visual arts chairman; Carolyn Fox-Hearne, fine arts instructor; Coy Lothrop, advertising and graphic design instructor; and O. Rufus Lovett, photography instructor, are now on exhibit.

“This is a chance for students to see the type of work their instructors actually do in their studios and a good opportunity to learn firsthand what they have been teaching you,” Fox-Hearne said.

The exhibit features oil and acrylic paintings, photography, as well as encaustics, a medium that dates from before 300 AD that uses hot wax and colored pigment.

“After all, the purpose of our gallery is for education,” Fox-Hearne said.
