Faculty Art Show
“The Faculty Art Show” incorporates artwork from multiple disciplines, including drawing, painting, photography and ceramics. While the college’s art instructors excel at helping students succeed in their budding art careers, many of them are accomplished artists as well.
This exhibition not only gives Central Piedmont’s Overcash Art Gallery an opportunity to display faculty work, but also affords students the chance to see their instructors’ artwork in a gallery setting. This show is a must-see for anyone on campus and provides an enjoyable diversion. Central Piedmont’s Overcash Art Gallery is enthusiastic about the opportunity to kick start the college’s fall semester with this exciting, new exhibition.
August 10 – October 2
Each year, Central Piedmont Community College’s Visual Arts Department hosts the Annual Juried Student Art Show recognizing student works in ceramics, 2D and 3D design, drawing, jewelry, painting, photography, printmaking, and sculpture.
Students who have works featured in the show receive a variety of awards, ranging from the Presidential Purchase Award; Foundation Purchase Award; first, second, and third place awards; along with a variety of others. Each year, select student artwork is showcased in this celebratory exhibition, held during the college’s Sensoria festival.
Christopher Thomas, director of foundations, professor of art in printmaking and drawing at the University of North Carolina Greensboro, will jury in this year’s selection of artwork that represents our visual arts students and arts department.
