BREVARD -- A year's worth of artistic and expressionistic faculty research will be on display at the Maxwell C. King Center for the Performing Arts, during the month of October.
The artwork, created by Eastern Florida State College's faculty members, will be on display until Oct. 28 in the Harris Corporation Lobby Gallery.
The exhibit will be open for free to the public on Oct. 2, 10, 16 and 24 from 4-6 p.m. and will feature sculpture in ceramics, paper, fibers, painting and digital media.
"A lot of community members are also students (of EFSC)," said Joanna White, program coordinator for the art department at EFSC. "They want to see the work we are producing. A professor in another field, like science, would do research in their field and share it with others. That is what we are doing."
Ms. White, who has been with the college since 2005, said the faculty exhibit is held once a year.
"I think we have a great display of the created (works)," she said. "(We also have) a good cross-section of talent, and a display of the different classes offered, including digital work."
Featured artists include Robert Cagner, Bobbie McMillan, Lynn Spencer and Joanna White.
Exhibiting faculty teach courses in the fields of Humanities, Graphic Technology and Studio Art.
Students, who are taking art-related courses, will also visit the exhibit with classes.
Ms. White said that a student-oriented art exhibit will be held in April. This exhibit will be open to all current students, who have taken an academic art class during the past two years.
The exhibit will also be available for viewing during King Center performances to ticketed patrons.
The Maxwell C. King Center for the Performing Arts is located at 3865 N. Wickham Road in Melbourne.
