Artwork from UTC faculty is on display at the Cress Gallery of Art until October 2nd. Located in the lobby of the UTC Fine Arts Center, this exhibition of visual research is free and open to the public.

The 2011 exhibition features 12 individual artists who teach full-time and adjunct in the Department’s core Foundations studio program and its four professional degree concentrations: Painting and Drawing, 3-D Studio, Graphic Design, and Photography / Media Art. A variety of art work, from contemporary to modern, was selected for the show.

Matt Greenwell, Head of the Department of Art, explains the significance of the show for both the department’s faculty and student body.

“It’s a reminder that sustained studio research and production remains an essential component to teaching in the studio arts,” Greenwell said. “The faculty exhibition is a touchstone for both our student majors and for one another as faculty as we continue to explore the boundaries of contemporary studio discourse.”

Participating in this year’s exhibition are Dan Bethune, Ron Buffington, Katie Claiborne, Robert Cox, Angela Dittmar, Matt Greenwell, Leslie Jensen-Inman, Phillip Lewis, Lakshmi Luthra, Maggie McMahon, Susan Seaton, Mark Bradley-Shoup, Gavin Townsend, and Alan White.

Hours for the Cress Gallery are 9:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Monday – Friday; 1p.m. – 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday and through intermission for all UTC Patten Series Performances. For more information, contact Ruth Grover, Director and Curator of the Cress Gallery at or (423) 304-9789.
