New gallery exhibit to feature works of artists who teach at campus

A new gallery exhibit will showcase the artistic talents of faculty and staff who teach at the campus. "The Art Behind the Instruction: Artists Who Teach at Penn State Lehigh Valley" runs from Jan. 10 to Feb. 19, 2011, and will open with a reception in the gallery from 5 to 7 p.m. on Jan. 20. The reception and exhibition are free and open to the public.

"This new exhibit uncovers the creativity that spans academic disciplines beyond the traditional arts," said Ann Lalik, gallery director. "Art instructors are featured, but we also included the passions and expressions from professors of psychology, biology, and information technology and administrators."

The exhibition will include drawing, painting, sculpture, jewelry, and photography by Greta Brubaker, Ron DeLong, Glen Hansen, Jeanine Hill, Kevin Kelley, Ann Lalik, Jacqueline McLaughlin, Kate Morgan and Ann Williams.

Two of the featured artists are new instructors at Penn State Lehigh Valley. Glen Hansen is a New York artist who is represented by the Fischbach Gallery in New York City. His work is owned by many prominent public collections in New York such as The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Nassau County Museum of Art, Neuberger Museum of Art, Citibank/Citigroup, and many more. Jeanine Hill will be teaching a ceramics course at Penn State Lehigh Valley. This is the first time this course will be taught at the Lehigh Valley campus. Hill lives and teaches in the Philadelphia and Delaware areas where she also exhibits her work.

The exhibition is free and open to the public. The gallery is located on the third floor of the campus at 2809 Saucon Valley Road, Center Valley, Pa., and it is open Monday-Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Thursday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. For more information, contact Ann Lalik at 610-285-5261 or e-mail aal13@psu.edu.
