Past events and happenings involving CFCC artists, both students and faculty, by semester
Mr. Billingsley, a CFCC Art Instructor, was a visiting artist at ECU the week of Feb. 4 through 8. He is shown here (foreground left) working on a woodcut for printmaking with some helpers.
The CFCC Art Faculty Show was a huge success this year. The show ran in January and February.
CFCC Art Instructor Kendall Martin has published “The West Virginia New Deal: Blanche Lazzell’s Mural in Morgantown” in Art Inquiries, a publication of the Southeastern College Art Conference. A link to the article is provided below:
Rick Conn, Art Instructor at CFCC, has two pieces on display in Wilmington’s most recent pedestrian art exhibit. Mr. Conn’s sculptures are on display along the Riverwalk near the Port City Marina. All of the sculptures survived Hurricane Florence.
From a StarNews article:
“Rick Conn’s Navigator and True North feel right at home across from the marina on the Northern Riverwalk. The abstract forms defy their rigid, rusted material, with fluid, easing shapes that seem capable of molding to the wind, like ship sails at sea. The two works are a PedArt debut for Conn, who teaches sculpture at Cape Fear Community College.”
Craven Arts Council & Gallery is proud to present “Creative Workforce” in the Main Gallery at Bank of the Arts starting August 7 to August 30. This exhibition will feature the work of art professors from community colleges in our area and their contributions to our region both artistically and holistically. Craven Arts will host an opening reception August 10th from 5pm to 8pm, during the downtown New Bern Artwalk.
