The STLCC Meramec Art Department held an opening reception, Aug. 29, for its annual fall semester faculty show. There is a range of media displayed, including: drawing, painting, printmaking, ceramics, sculpture, digital media, photography, graphic design, architecture and interior design. Many students and teachers attended the opening reception.

Andrew Erickson, an adjunct instructor who has been teaching since 2005, attended the opening reception. He is currently the instructor for the Watercolor class at the Meramec campus. Erickson has two pieces in the faculty show, a watercolor piece and a 3D relief piece.

“I’ve been spending two-thirds of my career working and trying to figure out watercolor and since grad school I’ve been working more with surface and modernism, just changing track a little bit.” Erickson said.

With the faculty show opening in the fall semester and new students attending classes at Meramec, some students think it is helpful that the faculty show opens first.

“There are probably a lot of people who have taken a course but are not really familiar with their instructors, so I think it’s helpful to see some of the finished work the instructors have done and it’s important to see that early in the semester,” a Meramec student Jim Daly said.

A Meramec student Calena Gruchot said, “I think it’s cool because the teachers create projects for you but that’s not what the teachers themselves make, so it’s always interesting to see what they do because a lot of times it’s totally different.”

The gallery is located on the first floor of the Humanities East Building. The hours for the gallery are Monday-Thursday 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Friday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and closed Sundays and holidays. The faculty exhibit will be open until Sept. 20.
