Lycoming College Art Department to hold faculty exhibit

WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. - The Lycoming College Art Department will host an exhibit featuring new artwork from Lycoming faculty in the College's Art Gallery in Snowden Library Nov. 29-Dec. 15. A reception and gallery talk will be held Thursday, Nov. 29, from 4-5:50 p.m.

Exhibiting faculty include David Burke, Michael Darough, Lynn Estomin, Seth Goodman, Jay, Innerarity, Jeremiah Johnson, Kathy Sterngold and Howard Tran.

Among the many works on display will be Estomin's "Passion Into Art," which incorporates web design, graphic design and photography. Estomin, professor of art, is a videographer, photographer and interactive media artist whose art deals with gender, social issues and the environment.

Goodman, assistant professor of art, will display his oil on wood piece, "It's a Matter of Taste." The piece is the product of creative research done during a two-month artist residency at Takt Berlin.

Innerarity, visiting professor of theatre, will exhibit "The Boxed Heart #43." The work is part of his Heart Collection, which he began in 2005 as he transitioned to civilian life after serving six years as a noncommissioned officer in the U.S. Army. The Heart Collection represents the artist's state as he learned to live with post-traumatic stress disorder, and is formed from a variety of media such as oil, pastel, bronze and porcelain.

Johnson, printmaking instructor at the College, will show "Private Property," a piece incorporating acrylic, dirt and found images on wood. The piece, as well as others in the series, raises the question of land ownership and property possession in Pennsylvania, relying heavily on collage and various printmaking techniques.
