With our third art and design faculty exhibition, the Gallery welcomes back some familiar faces from the Art and Design Programs. We also have the pleasure to introduce the works of some of our newest adjunct faculty members to the BCC community. A triennial event, this exhibition always brings together a diverse array of artists, many of whom actively exhibit their work through regional, national, and international venues. Eighteen full- and part-time faculty members participated in this year's show, and their works provide an opportunity for our community to take a look at the dynamic breadth of the faculty who teach here. Artist/teachers in this exhibition are Sixten Abbot, Elizabeth Alvarez, David Barnes, Jill Carrico, Jason Chase, Katharine Cope, Denise Donatelli, Elizabeth Dooher, Erik Durant, Christopher Durocher, Kathleen Hancock, Glenn LaVertu, Ron Lister, Andrew Maydoney, Marisa Millard, Chris Motta, Cynthia Swanson, and Jesse Thompson.
