 The artists will discuss their work and creative process in an Art Faculty Forum on Wednesday, September 26, at 7:00 p.m. This event is free and open to the public.  

“The exhibition and related programs provide an ideal opportunity for people to see the strengths of the department,  discover new instructors, and view media they might not have known they could study in our art department,” says Terry Hammond, director & curator of the Art Gallery. “This exhibit is always an eclectic mix of ideas and interests; it is a great celebration of all the talent and diversity the Guilford Art Department exemplifies.”
