Delta Colleges gallery presents faculty show

STOCKTON — Delta College’s Center for the Arts L.H. Horton Jr. Gallery presents the Fine Art Faculty Show through Feb. 15.

This biennial exhibition will showcase the work of Delta’s “Visual Arts” professors, who are professional artists and art historians in their own right. Each discipline offered for instruction is featured. The exhibition provides students, prospective students and community members a look at the talent and resources within Delta’s Visual Arts Department.

Exhibiting Fine Art faculty professors are Jennifer Barrows, Art History; Gary Carlos, Sculpture; Joe Mariscal, Ceramics; Melanie Marshall, Graphic Art; Mario Moreno, Painting / Drawing; Kirstyn Russell, Photography; and Ruth Santee, Design / Printmaking.

For this exhibit, the instructors also included various items for display that have inspired or facilitated the making of their artwork. Found objects, photos, sketchbooks, tools and materials that have shaped their creative process are presented to provide deeper insight into the artists’ work.

The L.H. Horton Jr. Gallery is a non-profit organization and a premier exhibition space in the city of Stockton. The primary mission of the Gallery is to promote the exhibition of quality and culturally diverse artwork in support of our students’ education and the community at large. The Gallery offers excellent exhibition opportunities to local, regional, and national artists, lenders and guest curators. The Gallery presents artists’ work in all media, with no thematic or geographic restrictions. The annual Student Exhibition is held at the end of spring semester.
