The Prescott Campus Library has 2 new exhibits for you to see for the remainder of March and through the month of April.
In the glass display case near the front of the library to your left as you come in the door is a stunning display of the metal art work of Chris Contos, an adjunct instructor in the Art Department. His work is quite varied and extremely creative, and he tells me the pieces on display were mostly made as demonstrations in the classes he teaches. You will be inspired to take a class from Chris when you see this exhibit!
In the glass display case to the left of the low reference collection stacks and near the outdoor reading patio we have a display of some beautiful pottery pieces (A.D. 500 – 1150 or so) that are from various parts of the world. These wonderful pieces are from the collection of Laura and Ken Ottinger. Mr. Ottinger is an adjunct instructor in the art department here at the Prescott Campus.
The ongoing student art display on the reference stacks is rotating work that comes to us from the classes of Dana Cohn, also an art department adjunct. His students are taking Art 190, 191, 292 – Oil/Acrylic Painting. Ken Ottinger’s students’ artwork is displayed on a large board in the hallway near the entrance to the library. They are studying Art 115 – Colored Pencil/Pastel – and Art 190, 191, 292 – Oil/Acrylic Painting. These students are doing amazing work, and it rotates during the semester, so there is usually something you haven’t seen already.
