February 10 – June 7, 2015
The artist educators of the Connecticut College Art Department present a diverse exhibition of their current studio activities. These teaching artists see the work of art making and teaching as reinforcing concepts. Art creation involves full time, life-long learning in the classroom and beyond, a dynamic that flows both ways, from teacher to student and back. Fresh viewpoints, new questions and surprising answers are the energizing results of the teaching/studio relationship. They bounce back to the individual artist fueling new work and shifting directions. Featuring paintings, sculpture, prints, drawings, photographs and installations, Transmissions will focus on the art practices of Nadav Assor, Gregory Bailey, Chris Barnard, Ted Hendrickson, Pamela Marks, Timothy McDowell, Denise Pelletier and Andrea Wollensak.
