November 26, 2018 – The 2018-2019 Annual Visual Arts Faculty Exhibit opens with a free reception that the artists will attend from 7-9 p.m. Friday, Nov. 30, 2018, at the Santa Fe College Gallery, Building M, Room 47 on the Northwest Campus. The exhibit will remain on view through Friday, Feb. 1, 2019. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Admission is free and the gallery is open to the public.

“The faculty exhibition is a great place to see a representative selection of the visual arts that are taught at Santa Fe College—everything from painting and drawing, ceramics to photography, installation, sculpture and more,” explained Kyle Novak, director of the Santa Fe College Gallery. “The exhibit recognizes the faculty for the work that they do and helps SF’s students and others to learn more about the visual arts. The opening reception is a perfect opportunity for people to meet our faculty and see how their work informs how they teach.”

“The Visual Arts program at Santa Fe College has a long, rich history of turning out talented young artists who go on to exhibit both locally and nationally,” said Fine Arts Department chair Alora Haynes. “We are proud of this legacy and the faculty who created it. I sincerely hope that the community will come out to see our faculty works and offer a show of support for these fine art educators.”

The Santa Fe College Gallery offers students and the Gainesville community a dynamic calendar of engaging and thought-provoking exhibitions with an emphasis on creating an innovative learning environment.
