MELBOURNE, Florida - Artwork created by Eastern Florida State College faculty members is the focus of a show at the Maxwell C. King Center for the Performing Arts on the Melbourne campus.
The Faculty Art Exhibit runs through Oct. 28 in the Harris Corporation Lobby
Gallery. It includes sculpture in ceramics, paper and fibers as well as
painting and digital media.
Featured artists include Robert Canger, Bobbie McMillan, Lynn Spencer and
Joanna White. Exhibiting faculty teach courses in the fields of Humanities,
Graphic Technology and Studio Art.
“Students are naturally curious to see the type of artwork their professors
are creating,” says Joanna White, Program Coordinator for the Art Department.
“We put this faculty show together once a year to share the application of our
artistic research with the students and local community.”
Students taking art-related courses on the Melbourne campus visit the
Faculty Exhibit with their classes.
In addition to the annual Faculty Exhibit, the Eastern Florida State College
Melbourne campus also hosts a Juried Student Art Exhibit, held each year in
April at the King Center. This exhibit is open to all current students who have
taken an academic art class at the college in the past two years.
The Eastern Florida Art Department offers courses in Drawing, Figure
Drawing, Painting, Ceramics, Design, Printmaking, and Sculpture. Students are
able to take some of the core art courses required for four-year degrees in
fields such as Graphic Design, Interior Design, Fashion Design, Art Education,
