Last year, distinguished MCCC Painting and Art History professor Mel Leipzig did a portrait of four of his art students -- Jon Allen, Clint Inting, Olivia Jupillat, and Sid Whitfield -- with their artwork behind them. Two graduated from MCCC last year, but Leipzig was so taken with their work that he suggested an exhibition of their current work.

Optic Axis: Early Conversations

[overview/details]
Sept. 2 through 27, 2003

Exhibition introduces the works of five young, emerging artists: Dan Hodgkinson, Jason Houck, Eric Kennedy (website), Matt Lucash, and Kathryn Sclavi. In an effort to further the artistic conversation of the exhibit, the artwork on display will be accompanied by essays by art professors/art critics familiar with the exhibited works (Greg Drasler, Mel Leipzig, Frank Rivera, Kyle Stevensen, and Kate Somers.) Each essay discusses a dialogue which the author believes is happening between the work of one of the young artists and that of any other artist, contemporary or deceased.

Artists' Reception: Wednesday, Sept. 10 from 5 to 7:30 p.m.
Panel Gallery Talk: Wednesday, Sept. 17 at 7 p.m.
