Danny Williams, associate professor in BPCC's Liberal Arts Division and one of the exhibitors, explains the concept behind the establishment of the faculty show. "The faculty show is rather a tradition in the college setting," says Williams. "College students rarely get to know the work which a faculty member creates in his or her studio. I have always thought the opportunity for dialogue created by this type of show is a valuable experience for both students and faculty."
Open from 9:00 am - 2:30 pm daily, the Donna Service Gallery at Bossier Parish Community College will host four other exhibitions this spring semester. These exhibits include:
- Caddo Parish Talented Arts Program Exhibition - March 6-23
- BPCC Student Exhibition - March 27-April 25
- 31st Annual Congressional Art Show - April 27-May 4
The Donna Service Gallery at Bossier Parish Community College was named for a deceased art instructor at the College. The gallery houses student art work in all forms--portraits, paintings, sculpture, and photography. While at BPCC, Service taught Introduction to Fine Arts, Art History, Ceramics, Sculpture, and Art for Elementary Teachers. She encouraged her students to interact with the broader art scene in Shreveport-Bossier by involving them in projects such as Arts in the Edge - a month long art showcase with local and regional artists in downtown Shreveport.
