FARMERS BRANCH/DALLAS • The Studio and Forum galleries at Brookhaven College will feature ceramic sculpture from Margaret Meehan and the works of Brookhaven College School of the Arts faculty members Oct. 3-26. There also will be a reception for both shows Oct. 8 from 6 to 8 p.m.
The Studio Gallery will feature Meehan’s works and David Newman, gallery director, said the pieces incorporate both “art history and kitsch references to create sculpture that is both humorous and disquieting.” Meehan earned her master’s degree in fine arts from the University of Washington in Seattle. Her recent shows include Walking Clay: Figurative Sculpture at Gallery Pahk in New York; School’s Out at the National Council for Education in the Ceramic Arts in Baltimore; and Six of One: Dreaming of Dolly at the Soil Gallery in Seattle.
“The pieces in the art faculty show follow a breadth of aesthetic and conceptual issues, media and modes of practice indicative of the scope of the art curriculum at Brookhaven College,” said Newman. The range of talent among the art professors in the Brookhaven College School is apparent in the extent of the exhibit at the Forum Gallery. The show includes works by Betsy Belcher, Barbara Brault, Du Chau, Chong Chu, Kandace Davis, Julia Dawson, Lisa Ehrich, Josh Goode, Bruce Humphries, Martin Delabano, Rick Maxwell, Margaret McDowell, Margaret Meehan, Susan Mollet, David Newman, Chancellor Page, Jane Starks, Lianne Krueger Sullivan, Rebecca Swann, Don Taylor, David VanNess, Shawn Whelan and Marla Ziegler. Exhibiting art faculty members will give a gallery talk Oct. 19 from noon to 1:30 p.m.
The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public. Brookhaven College is located at 3939 Valley View Lane, between Midway Road and Marsh Lane in Farmers Branch. The Studio Gallery is located in Building D, Room D127, and the Forum Gallery is located in Building F, Room F101. Both galleries are open Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The Brookhaven College School of the Arts is funded in part by a grant from the City of Carrollton. For additional information about the gallery shows e-mail David Newman, or call 972-860-4101.
