An Abundance of Skill art exhibition features work of NWC Art & Design faculty

Northwest College’s full-time Art & Design faculty Elaine DeBuhr, Anne Toner and Morgan Tyree will join forces with adjunct faculty members Jocelyn Howard, Kory Rountree, Steve Schrepferman, Sarah Shearer and Rebecca Weed to showcase “An Abundance of Skill” in this fall’s first exhibition, which will go on display in the Northwest Gallery Sept. 3.

An artists’ reception will be held Tuesday, Sept. 3, from 7-8:30 p.m. in the lobby of the Cabre Building on the NWC campus. Light refreshments will be provided, and admission to the gallery is free and open to the public.

DeBuhr, Howard and Schrepferman, who are all ceramic artists, will be exhibiting a combination of functional, decorative and sculptural work.

For this particular exhibition, Tyree, assistant professor of graphic arts, will be stepping away from the photography and print medias that he usually exhibits. Instead, he will be adding assemblages—artwork consisting of three-dimensional elements—to the exhibition.

“I decided last spring that I would do something totally different than what is expected of me,” Tyree said. “So, I stepped out of my comfort zone and did some collage and assemblage work—undoubtedly influenced by my partner Mish Stewart.”

Rountree and Shearer will exhibit several forms of fine art prints, while Toner and Weed will add paintings to the exhibition to complete the display.

The Northwest Gallery is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m.-4 p.m., and Thursdays from 7-9 p.m. Admission is free.
