The Lycoming College Art Faculty Show will open Friday, Dec. 5 from 4-9 p.m. with a Meet the Artists Reception from 6-8 p.m. at 25 W. Fourth Street, Williamsport. The exhibit, on display until Dec. 19, is free and open to the public.
The Faculty Show features new works from nine Lycoming College art faculty members: Professor Lynn Estomin, Associate Professor Howard Tran, Assistant Professor Seth Goodman, Visiting Assistant Professor Michael Darough, Antonia Crook-Perez, gallery curator, and adjunct faculty members, David Burke, Jeremiah Johnson, Katherine Sterngold and Andrea McDonough Varner.
Estomin’s work, “SHAME,” combines image transfer, an interactive website, video, magazine ads from clothing manufacturers, donated clothing labels, sculpture, silk-screening, stitching and photographs to draw attention to the history of human rights violations in the textile industry.
“SHAME is my response to runaway shops and unsafe conditions in the global textile industry,” said Estomin. “I used a variety of art to draw attention to the human rights violations in the production of the clothes we wear and the stories of the women who worked in the industry.”
The Lycoming College Art Gallery, which opened to the public in October, plans to feature regional and national exhibitions in addition to the annual Art Faculty Show and Senior Show..
