Faculty artwork on display in gallery


There are very few times when a professor can actually show the
students they teach the skills they know.
Art is just one of the exceptions.
Faculty artists, photographers, sculptors are currently showing their
works at the L.H. Horton Gallery.
The show is the biennial exhibition of San Joaquin Delta College Fine
Art Faculty artwork.
“Works from the visual art professors give the students, prospective
students and community members a look at the talent and resources
within the Visual Arts Department” read the flier mailed out.
Professor Kirstyn Russell, Delta College photography professor has
some of her works showcased at the event.
“My favorite work of my own is the image of the children packing up
their instruments after rehearsal,” said Kirstyn Russell, in an email
interview, “It really captures the My Street project in which children
were working on pretty sophisticated photography and music.”
Also showcased are professors Jennifer Barrows, Gary Carlos, Joe
Mariscal, Melanie Marshall, Mario Moreno and Ruth Santee.
The works range from sculpture to photography, art history to
pantings/ drawings, ceramics to graphic arts.
“There have been students visiting the gallery for their formal
analysis papers,” said Jan Marlese, L.H. Horton Jr. Gallery Director.
The show concludes on Feb. 15. Admission is free, students are
required to leave backpacks near the door.
