Patrick Henry Community College recently unveiled the first art exhibition of spring 2016. The exhibit, called “Learning the Practice: Artists at Work,” comes from Hollins University.
The exhibition, which will be on display in the Walker Fine Arts building through February 25, is a collection of student work selected by Hollins University Professor Jennifer D. Anderson from among her own students. The exhibition reflects an array of artistic experience as the pieces were selected from both beginning and advanced classes. According to Professor Anderson, the pieces showcase the students’ exploration of technique and their unique artistic voices.
For PHCC professor of fine arts Gerry Bannan, the exhibition is also way of strengthening ties between the art departments of both PHCC and Hollins University and highlighting the two schools’ shared history of success.
“Over the past many years, several PHCC students have transferred to the Hollins University Art Program and achieved wonderful academic success,” said Bannan. “We are glad for the opportunity to showcase one of our many strong transfer relationships that PHCC has with distinguished art programs.”
The gallery is open to anyone from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Walker Fine Arts Building. For more information about the art program at PHCC contact Gerry Bannan at email@example.com or (276) 656-0336.
