The “Ninth Biennial Faculty Art Exhibition” at McDaniel College highlights a variety of works by current art and art history faculty members. The exhibition runs Thursday, Jan. 30–Friday, Feb. 28, in McDaniel’s Rice Gallery, Peterson Hall, at 2 College Hill, Westminster, Md. An artists’ reception takes place Thursday, Jan. 30, 5:30-7:30 p.m., with a gallery talk at 6 p.m.


This exhibition is a rare opportunity to see the range and depth of works by select McDaniel faculty members.


Works in the exhibition include paintings by professor Steven Pearson, Chinese-styled watercolor and ink paintings by professor Susan Clare Scott and intermedia and digital art by assistant professor Chloe Irla.


For example, in Pearson’s Duralar drawings, he communicates a unique message using pieces of his past works.


“I combine fragments of my representational paintings created between 1995-2003, nonrepresentational renderings produced between 2003-2014, and current articles from various newspapers,” Pearson said. “The final renditions of fragmented and layered histories enact the ways that we collectively experience multiple temporalities in the present. Quoting my various bodies of work challenges both material and conceptual boundaries that determine fixed notions of artistic identity.”


Other works by adjunct lecturers include photography by Walter Calahan, jewelry by Linda Van Hart, images and wall sculpture by Chinen Aimi, pottery and ceramics by Nicole Diem and mixed media by Nicole Ringel.


The exhibition and reception are both free and open to the public. Rice Gallery hours are Monday–Friday from noon–4 p.m. and Saturday, noon–5 p.m. Call 410-857-2595 for more information. Visit www.mcdaniel.edu for information about McDaniel College.
