USC Upstate in Spartanburg, SC, Offers Works by Art Ed Majors

USC Upstate in Spartanburg, SC, will present the exhibit, Inspiring the Imagination Through Art Education, featuring works by students majoring in art education, on view in the Curtis R. Harley Art Gallery, from Jan. 13 through Feb. 27, 2012. A reception and lecture will take place on Jan. 24, at 7pm.

Exhibiting artists include Brock Allen, Eddie Barry, Holly Black, Katelyn Gmerek, Lori Mendiola, Dianna Painter, Sarah Scott and Dana Wilkins. These students have completed or will be completing their degrees or certification in 2011 or 2012.

The purpose of the exhibit is to highlight work by these students both as artists and future educators. Artworks in a full range of media will be featured. Some were completed in USC Upstate courses such as painting, crafts and printmaking. Others were created independently, outside of class.
Part of the exhibit, located in the FOCUS Gallery will showcase teacher candidates working with students during practicum or directed teaching. These will include projects made by students in elementary through high school classrooms throughout the Upstate as well as educational philosophies and related lesson plans.

The exhibit, reception, and lecture are free and open to the public. Local educators and administrators are encouraged to attend.
