Marjorie Greene Graff: 21 Years in Printmaking
October 7 – December 30, 2018 • CENTER GALLERY
SPC Visual Arts faculty member, Marjorie Greene Graff, reflects on her tenure as a professor of art and printmaker. A selection of Graff's colorful relief block prints shows the scope of work done throughout her twenty-one-year career. Focusing on ambiguous landscapes, Graff filters her experiences and travels through a personal lens and reveals the essence of a place through her prints. Also included in the exhibition are sketchbooks, printmaking tools, and print proofs and plates showing the artist's process in reduction wood block printing.
Graff has helped develop SPC's printmaking program into a thriving department by teaching a range of printmaking techniques, bringing in guest artists, and utilizing LRMA's galleries and Resource Center as a learning lab to enrich the student experience. Graff will be retiring from SPC in October 2018.
SPC Visual Arts Faculty Exhibition
October 7 – December 30, 2018 • NORTH AND SOUTH GALLERIES
LRMA showcases new work by St. Petersburg College visual arts full-time and adjunct faculty members, who, in addition to serving as educators, are practicing artists. This biennial exhibition offers an array of different styles, media, and two and three-dimensional work that showcases the breadth and expertise of SPC's art faculty.
This year faculty members have taken their work in exciting new directions through opportunities in personal and professional artistic growth. Many faculty members developed new work over the summer, had the opportunity to travel, participated in nationally-renowned artist-in-residence programs, and some were awarded grants to bring major projects to completion. Others explored new ideas through inter-disciplinary themes that developed into multi-media installations in the LRMA galleries.
