SHELTON STATE COMMUNITY COLLEGE VISUAL ARTS PRESENTS FIRST EXHIBITION OF ACADEMIC YEAR

Tuscaloosa, Alabama – Shelton State Community College’s Visual Arts Department will present its first exhibition for the 2019-20 academic year.  The free exhibition open to the public, “Erasing: The Art of Subtractive Drawing,” will open on Friday, August 30 and run through Monday, September 23 in the Martin Campus Cadence Bank Art Gallery.

 

The exhibition will feature subtractive drawings created by current and former Shelton State students. These drawings have been created through the unique subtractive drawing process of erasing graphite from paper.

 

Part of Shelton State’s designation as the Community College of the Fine Arts for the state of Alabama, the visual arts department focuses on instruction in art techniques and processes engaging students in creative thinking, self-exploration, and critical evaluation.  Courses are designed to provide students with a strong foundation in studio arts and art history.  The art program offers experience for students pursuing transfer to a four-year college program, art careers, and/or personal enrichment.

 

The Cadence Bank Art Gallery, located on the Martin Campus, showcases a changing series of exhibitions of local, regional, and national artists. At the end of each semester, the gallery features a juried student art exhibition with a purchase award.
