Faculty Work Featured in Fall Exhibit
September 12, 2019

The artwork of Walters State Community College faculty is featured in a new exhibit in the Catron Art Gallery, located inside the R. Jack Fishman Library on the Morristown Campus. 
“Many of our professors are professional artists outside the classroom. As teaching artists, we live dual professional lives which impacts our teaching,” said Amy Evans, head of the art program at Walters State.
“A professor’s experiences in their professional studio practice helps move our art curriculum forward. For students, seeing how their professors solve creative problems in a given medium pulls back a mysterious curtain and creates an exciting learning opportunity.”
Evans is a ceramics artist who joined the college in 2005. Also featured is work by printmaker Jessie VanDerLaan-Delaney, associate professor of art. She joined Walters State in 2015.
The department’s adjunct faculty members are also included in the exhibit. 
•Eleanor Aldrich works in oil and enamel and teaches painting.
•John Allen is a mixed media artist who teaches photography and introduction to art.
•Anna Boyd is a mixed media artist who teaches introduction to art.
•Lauren Strohacker is an eco-political artist who teaches art history.
The exhibit runs through Nov. 22. Admissions is free, and the gallery is open during regular library hours: 8 a.m.-6 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday; 8 a.m.-8 p.m. on Wednesday, and 8 a.m.-4:15 p.m. on Friday.
