For Immediate Release
DALLAS—Teachers and practicing artists are the focus of new exhibits at the Forum and Studio galleries at Brookhaven College. The School of the Arts galleries feature the works of two Dallas County Community College District art faculty members, June 19-July 30.
Jorge Misium, Brookhaven College alumnus and former faculty member, now teaches in the art department of Eastfield College. Misium exhibits new sculpture in the Forum Gallery. Misium studied at Brookhaven College before receiving the Master of Fine Arts from Southern Methodist University. In addition to this exhibition, Misium’s work is included in the 2008 Beijing Biennial. “Misium’s current abstract sculpture references the body, not as representation, but as a metaphorical site,” says David Newman, gallery director.
Brookhaven Art Department faculty member Natalie Macellaio exhibits in the Studio Gallery. Macellaio’s work in metal, resin and ceramic, examines repetition and modular seriality in articulating space.
The exhibitions 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 Forum Gallery is located in Building F, Room F101, and the Studio Gallery is located in Building D, Room D127. Both galleries are open Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For additional information about the gallery exhibitions contact David Newman at 972-860-4101 or send an e-mail to dNewman@dcccd.edu.
