Time is running out to see the Faculty Art Show at Sterling College. Showcasing the works of three professors in painting, drawing, and digital illustration, the exhibit has over 25 pieces of art. The exhibit is displayed in the Sterling College Art Building at the corner of West Washington and North 8th Street, one block south of the Gleason Athletic Complex. The work will be on display until October 21, and the gallery is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Though self-proclaimed "loner" artists such as Degas, Gauguin, Monet, and Van Gogh-to name only a few-felt that solitude was necessary to produce art, Sterling College Associate Professor of Art David Harmon and artist Susan Harmon would agree more with French writer Honore de Balzac, who said, "Solitude is fine, but you need someone to tell you that solitude is fine." Actually, David and Susan Harmon say that living and working with a fellow artist does more than protect their sanity; it has great benefits for the art they create. "We work separately, but we critique one another's work in a very open way. We are strong, independent artists in our own right, but we really value one another's opinions," said David Harmon.
Sterling College Associate Professor of Art David Harmon will present a paper at the 24thannual National Conference on Liberal Arts and the Education of Artists presented by the School of Visual Arts in New York City. The conference's mission is to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and information about the role of the liberal arts in the education of artists.
