Featured artists include Robert Canger, Bobbie McMillan, Lynn Spencer and Joanna White. Exhibiting faculty teach courses in the fields of Humanities, Graphic Technology and Studio Art.

“Students are naturally curious to see the type of artwork their professors are creating,” says Joanna White, Program Coordinator for the Art Department. “We put this faculty show together once a year to share the application of our artistic research with the students and local community.”
