Highland Gallery to host Visual Arts Faculty Exhibit

FREEPORT -- The Highland Gallery will feature works of art created by current HCC Visual Arts faculty members beginning November 5, 2015. This annual event will begin with an opening reception from 4:30 to 6 p.m. on Thursday, November 5, at the Highland Gallery located in the Ferguson Fine Arts Center on the Highland Campus.

Recent works by Bob Apolloni, drawing, design, and intro to art instructor; Reed Bakken, pottery instructor; Jim Planting, drawing, design, and painting instructor; and Sam Tucibat, graphic design and photography instructor will be on display and available for contemplation, stimulation, and discussion as a featured exhibit of the Fall 2015 Semester.

"Faculty members of the HCC Visual Arts program are professional artists, as well as instructors, working within a diverse range of media, content, and image concerns," explains Highland Gallery Director Robert Apolloni. "Their individualized style and approach creates an exhibit showcasing traditional as well as contemporary concerns. A faculty art exhibition, comprised solely of works created by faculty members, is scholarly -- and this exhibit illustrates the commitment of HCC Visual Arts faculty to pursue continued research and artistry outside of the class room setting."

Highland Gallery hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. For more information about the gallery or Highland's Visual Arts program, contact Robert Apolloni at 815.599.3479 or
