The Greensboro College Department of Art’s fall student art exhibition opens with a reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 18, in the Anne Rudd Galyon and Irene Cullis Galleries in the Cowan Humanities Building on campus. The reception and exhibit are free and open to the public. Regular exhibit hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays and 9 a.m. to noon Saturdays through Dec. 8. The exhibit will feature one senior show, ‘Amplified Perception,’ the photographic work of Marco Figueroa, a native of Mexico City whose work combines fine art with commercial photography to create abstract perceptions. ‘I enjoy close-ups because humans do not observe these areas unless they’re shown in a creative way,’ says Figueroa. His work will feature about a dozen images of the same subject, from extreme close-up to medium distance, based in an installation in the middle of the gallery. Figueroa will graduate in December and plans to start his own photography company while pursuing his twin passions of art and soccer. The exhibition also will feature work from all the college’s fall art classes, totaling more than 100 students. The work will include drawings, paintings, photography, ceramics and ceramic sculpture, and video. Greensboro College’s Department of Art offers the B.A. or B.S. in Art and the B.A. in Art Education. The program, with individual attention to students, combines classic art principles with the liberal-arts foundations of diverse branches of inquiry, including both science and the humanities, so that students can incorporate as much of the world as possible into their own art-making. For more information about Greensboro College’s art program, contact the department chair, Professor Jim Langer, at 336-272-7102, ext. 5361, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
