Furman University in Greenville, SC, is presenting its inaugural community art show in the Baiden Gallery, located in the Herring Center for Continuing Education, on view through Oct. 31, 2013.

The art show highlights work from accomplished visual art instructors for Learning for You and the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI), and selected student participants from Bridges to a Brighter Future.

Both OLLI and Learning for You promote personal development and lifelong learning. Together, the programs will offer more than 200 classes this fall covering a wide range of topics.

Bridges to a Brighter Future is a college access and success program for Greenville County high school students whose potential outdistances their circumstances. During the Bridges 2013 summer residential program, several students participated in an elective photography class with instructor Kelly Godwin.

The Bridges to a Brighter Future students whose work will be featured in the show are: Briyonte Young (Berea High School); Callie McKenzie (Berea High School); Brittany Gilliland (Brashier Middle College); Quan McMorris (Carolina High School); Jessica Guadarrama (Eastside High School); Lal Khup (Eastside High School); Kevin Gonzales (Greenville High School); Tina Rezkalla (Hillcrest High School); Christian Monsalve (Mauldin High School); Martha Juarez (Mauldin High School); and Amyas Jackson (Travelers Rest High School).

The art show gives the community an opportunity to visit the Herring Center, home to OLLI, Learning for You, and Bridges to a Brighter Future. The Herring Center is also headquarters for two other divisions of Furman’s Continuing Education, Undergraduate Evening Studies, and Corporate & Professional Development. In all, Furman’s Continuing Education department serves more than 3,500 Upstate students annually.
