2016 HCC Visual Arts Faculty Exhibit Open House to be held on November 3

Freeport -- The Highland Gallery will feature works of art created by current HCC Visual Arts faculty members from November 3 through December 6, 2016. This annual event will begin with an opening reception from 4:30 to 6 p.m. on Thursday, November 3, at the Highland Gallery, located in the Ferguson Fine Arts Center. 

A faculty art exhibition, comprised solely of works created by faculty members working in the Visual Arts program, is scholarly -- and this exhibit illustrates the commitment of HCC Visual Arts faculty to pursue continued research and artistry outside of the classroom setting.

From Gallery Director Robert Apolloni:

"Faculty members of the HCC Visual Arts program are professional artists, as well as instructors, working with a diverse range of media, content, and technical and image-based concerns. Their individualized style and approach create unique visuals designed to illicit expression, contemplation, and communication among the visiting audience.

This exhibition also allows members of our district to connect with these instructors on a different level than they may have previously experienced. Students, college employees, and community members now have the opportunity to view and discuss the professionally published work by these instructors. Especially important is the chance to do this during the Opening Reception, where everyone is invited to view the work and interact with the artists present during this unique time period.

This exhibit features works of art created by current HCC Visual Arts faculty members Bob Apolloni, Drawing, Design, and Intro to Art instructor; Amanda Bulger, Pottery instructor; Jim Planting, Drawing, Design, and Painting instructor; Barry Treu, Design instructor; and Sam Tucibat, Graphic Design instructor."

Highland Gallery hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. For more information about the gallery or Highland's Visual Arts program, contact Robert Apolloni at 815.599.3479 or
