The Art Gallery at Collin College will host “The Annual Art Faculty Exhibition,” from Wednesday, Aug. 21 through Wednesday, Sept. 18 at the Plano Campus (Spring Creek).

The annual exhibition features artwork by art professors in the Fine Arts Division of Collin College. The diversity of media and styles makes this show a unique opportunity for students to learn about art courses offered at Collin and for the public to view what the professors create in their own studios.  Art courses offered at Collin include 2-D design, 3-D design, ceramics, communication design, digital arts, drawing, figure drawing, jewelry/art metals, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, and watercolor.

Visitors are encouraged to bring a lunch and join faculty, staff, and students for the ART CAFÉ Brown Bag Series in the gallery with a guest speaker from noon to 12:45 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 5. A reception will be held, free and open to the public, from 4-7 p.m. on the same day.

The gallery is located on the Plano Campus (Spring Creek), Room A175, 2800 E. Spring Creek Parkway in Plano. Gallery hours: 9 a.m.-8 p.m., Monday-Thursday; 9 a.m.-3 p.m., Friday-Saturday.
