College recognizes 40 years of talent

By: Bryan Trude, feature editor

Students and faculty from 40 years of RSC’s history gathered in the Communications Center lobby Tuesday, Sept. 21 for the display banquet for the 40-4-40 Art Exhibit.

The exhibit, part of RSC’s Visual Arts Series, features 40 artists who are former or current RSC staff and students. The exhibit opened in the Communications Center on Wednesday, Sept. 1 and will run until Monday, Oct. 11.

“I was surprised, very surprised to hear I had a work in the show,” James Echols, continuing education major and former RSC maintenance worker, said. “Especially since I am a beginner.”

Displayed works include traditional paintings, etchings, sketches and photography. Displays are available for viewing in the lobby glass cases, as well as the art studio cases in the north hallway of the classroom area.

Deborah Eckroat, multimedia communications and art double major, was “real excited” to find out two of her paintings were in the showing, calling it “a pretty big honor.”

The reception was catered by RSC Food Services. Entertainment was provided by the Ukie Hart Trio, performing soft jazz selections.

Some of the displayed works are available for purchase. To purchase a piece of art from the exhibit, contact Audrey Dobbins by phone, 733-7994, between 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
