Each summer, Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC) painting instructor Elizabeth Ross takes a group of students to a farm in Middlebrook, Virginia, to participate in a resident program presented by the Art Department of CPCC called Airy Knoll. During the week-long stay, students take part in an intensive exploration of the creative process of finding one’s own voice in the visual arts.
During November, CPCC Galleries will present “Witnessing…,” a collection of the student work produced during the summer 2017 Airy Knoll experience. The works will feature each student’s own reflection of their time at Airy Knoll. Please visit Pease Gallery in the coming weeks as CPCC celebrates their creations.
