New Art Exhibitions on Display in Howard Community College Galleries
Columbia, Maryland – Howard Community College (HCC) is pleased to announce the arrival of two new exhibitions in the college’s galleries running October 1 through November 18, 2018.
“Places Called Home,” an exhibition featuring paintings and printmaking by former HCC student Nicole Parker will be held in The Rouse Company Gallery, located within the Horowitz Center for the Performing Arts (HVPA). The exhibit is an investigation into Parker’s past as it relates to her present self and is essentially a large and ongoing visual memoir in the form of oil paintings and intaglio prints. Parker creates pictures of places and things revolving around the themes of memory, self, and home.
Located in the Richard B. Talkin Family Art Gallery on the first floor of McCuan Hall is “Big Prints,” an exhibit by Donald Depuydt. Working in etching and lithography, Depuydt’s images are process-driven, combining figurative and architectural references with intuitive mark-masking. Depuydt hopes to strike a balance between control, structure, and spontaneity. In his works, Depuydt slowly builds an image up, tears it down, and then builds it up multiple times over
Both exhibits are free and open to the public from 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. daily. Each exhibit will hold a reception within their gallery location at 5 p.m. on October 18, 2018.
