Images From the "Ceramics Invitational"
For its December/January “Ceramics Invitational," Trenton’s Ellarslie Museum selected seven pieces of ceramic art by MCCC Associate Professor Michael Welliver, and the work of seven of Welliver’s students. The show runs through Jan. 2 at the museum, located in Trenton's Cadwallader Park.
Clay, its functionality and its sculptural expression are keys to Welliver’s art and teaching. “There is always pull between function and sculpture in ceramics,” he says. The works shown at Ellarslie, which he completed last summer, “hover around the borderline between both.” More here.

Johnson Writes for College Media Review
Assistant Professor of English Holly-Katherine Johnson, the adviser to MCCC’s award-winning student newspaper, The College VOICE, has authored the lead story in the fall 2010 edition of College Media Review, a publication for media advisors.
Entitled “Access Denied?” the article discusses the role of the media adviser in assisting student journalists with access to information as they pursue stories on their campuses. Johnson notes that requests for student information are often denied by college administrators under the Family Education Rights Privacy Act (FERPA). The full article appears on pages 5-7 here.
Giantisco Part of Panel at TCNJ
On Dec. 3, Game Design faculty member Richard Giantisco attended a conference sponsored by the NJ Autodesk Animation Global Users Association at The College of New Jersey.
