October 17, 2004

McDaniel College's art and art history faculty members will take the spotlight for an exhibit of their work Wednesday through Nov. 17 in the Rice Gallery of Peterson Hall.

This second biennial McDaniel College Faculty Art Show will feature eight instructors showing a range of work, including sculpture, digital and acrylic paintings, ceramic bowls and cups, watercolor and ink painting, jewelry and oil on canvas.

Artists are Susan Ruddick Bloom, O. Kenneth Hankins, Michael Losch, Gretchen McKay, Katya Dovgan Mychajlyshyn, Steven Pearson, Susan Clare Scott and Linda Van Hart.

An opening reception will be held from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesday in Rice Gallery.

Works include Bloom's digital paintings and collages, including "Peonies," "Plum Run Blessing of the Hounds," "Sunday Ride" and "Shriver's Hill."

Hankins displays functional ceramic pieces such as bowls, mugs, plates and cups.

Losch's large paintings depict spiritual martyrs of various religious traditions.

McKay is showing two abstract works, "Orange Stripe (Empress Zoe)" and a portrait of her beagle, plus a takeoff on Matisse's "Green Stripe (Madame Matisse)."

Mychajlyshyn exhibits paintings, drawings, sculptures, photographs and documentation on art conservation, including a portrait of McDaniel President Joan Develin Coley.

Pearson's oils on canvas illustrate the evolution of his painting from June last year to today, using common consumer objects with other items.

Scott's interest is in Asian art through watercolor and ink paintings in the style of Chinese landscape painting.

Van Hart presents mixed media in collage and metalsmithing, including her large-scale heart-armor pieces.
