Faculty Artists Display New Works

Faculty Artists Display New Works

It’s becoming more and more difficult to contain all of the talent that’s brewing in the Brookhaven College Art Department, and faculty artists Julie Shipp Colbert and Mary Kathryn Wimberly aren’t making it any easier!

Both ladies currently have their newest works in painting and photography, respectively, on display for all to admire.

Colbert’s paintings will show June 15-July 3 in the Forum Gallery, while Wimberly’s photography exhibit will run through July 3 in the Studio Gallery. Both artists are participants of the long-running Faculty Project series.

Colbert has been a drawing teacher in the School of the Arts since 2009. She earned her Master of Fine Arts in painting from the University of Texas at San Antonio and two Bachelor of Fine Arts degrees in drawing and painting, and art history from the University of North Texas. Exhibiting regularly in the region, Colbert is represented by the Joan Grona Gallery in San Antonio, Texas.

Wimberly currently teaches photography for the School of the Arts. She earned her Master of Fine Arts from Texas Woman’s University and Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of North Texas. Wimberly exhibits regularly in the region, as well as across the globe. Her work was presented at the Universidad Nacional de Colombia in the cities of Medellin and Leticia and was featured at Nexus, a South American exhibit.

The exhibitions are free and open to the public. The Forum Gallery is in Bldg. F, Room F101, and the Studio Gallery is in Bldg. D, Room D127. Both galleries are open Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.

For more information about the exhibitions, contact David Newman, gallery director, at 972-860-4101 or
