Holy Cross’ Cantor Art Gallery to Feature Work of Faculty and Staff

August 21st, 2007 by 

WORCESTER, Mass. – The Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Art Gallery at the College of the Holy Cross presents Crossroads Holy Cross’ Visual Arts Faculty and Staff. The exhibition, starting Sept. 4 and running through Dec. 21, will be presented in two parts, Part I: Photography, Sculpture and Drawing; Sept. 4 – Oct. 27 and Part II: Painting, Printmaking and Mixed Media; Nov. 8 – Dec. 21.

The studio faculty and visual arts staff at Holy Cross are all working artists who utilize a variety of media and approaches in addition to their roles as teachers and professionals, dedicated to developing and supporting the creative thought process in their students.

Faculty artists included in Crossroads: Part I are Michael Beatty, associate professor of studio art, sculpture; Robert ParkeHarrison, associate professor of studio art, and Shana ParkeHarrison, who work collaboratively on photography and sculpture; Michael Demers, lecturer of studio art, drawings; Leslie Schomp, lecturer of studio art, drawings and sculpture; and Tim Johnson, Cantor Art Gallery exhibitions preparator, photography and drawings.

The following events are planned in conjunction with the first exhibition. All events will be held at the Cantor Art Gallery.

  • Sept. 4, Exhibit Opens: Crossroads Holy Cross’ Visual Arts Faculty and Staff
  • Sept. 12, 5 – 6:30 p.m. Opening Reception Part 1
  • Sept. 25, 4:30 – 5:30 p.m. Gallery talk by Michael Beatty, associate professor of studio art, sculptures
  • Oct. 3, 12 – 1 p.m. Gallery talk by Robert ParkeHarrison, associate professor of studio art, and Shana ParkeHarrison, who work collaboratively on photography and sculpture

Guided tours of the exhibition are available on Sept. 17 and 27, Oct. 11, 15, and 22 at noon.

Beatty has taught sculpture, 3-design and senior seminars at Holy Cross since 1997. His constructivist work has been on display in numerous feature exhibitions, including the Barbara Krakow Gallery in Boston in 2003 and 2001 and the Boston Sculptors Gallery in 2006. Beatty’s work is represented in several public and private collections, including the DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Garden in Lincoln, Mass. and Fidelity Investments in Boston.

The ParkeHarrisons have been producing and collaborating on a unique series of photographs. Their work alludes to an environmentally shattering world, coupled with an on-going narrative of healing and restoration, through the intersection of a shaman like figure of an Everyman and other figures, who seemingly offer a suggestion of hope into their dark landscapes. The ParkeHarrison’s work has been included in numerous one-person exhibitions, including a traveling exhibition titled The Architects Brother, organized by the George Eastman House International Museum of Photography and Film. Their work is displayed in many major museum collections throughout the United States, including the Museum of Fine Arts (Boston); Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Whitney Museum of American Art (NYC); Museum of Fine Arts (Houston); National Museum of American Art, and Smithsonian Institution (Washington, D.C.).

Crossroads Part II will include the work of Naomi Ribner, lecturer of studio art, video and prints; Cristi Rinklin, assistant professor and studio division head, painting; Susan Schmidt, associate professor of studio art, printmaking and drawing; and Amy Wynne Derry, visiting lecturer of studio art, painting. Also included will be painting and photography work by David Gyscek, studio lab supervisor and sculpture by Roger Hankins, Cantor Art Gallery’s director.  Additional guided tours and artists’ talks for the second part of the exhibition will be scheduled throughout the fall.  Visit the Gallery’s Web site for complete details.
