The public is invited to the Porterville College Art Gallery to see the artwork of PC Faculty: Dave Chamberlain, Mark Eaton, Jim Entz, Glenn Hill and Tom Howell. The exhibition is currently running now through Nov. 25.
The work of these five artists is in a broad range of media: photography, ceramics, sculptural paintings, drawing, sculpture, painting, and digital art—and each artist approaches their medium quite differently.
Dave Chamberlain describes his photographs as “my eclectic view of the world through photography”. Mark Eaton discusses how his ceramic forms “deal with texture and the element of chance”. Jim Entz describes how his work “draws a line to nature through process—topographical landscapes of paint formed through an accretionary process of layering color.”
“As a painter, oils are my medium, and I wield them in the service of storytelling,” said Glen Hill. Tom Howell doesn’t say much about his work, but his friend Jim Heitzberg says in reference to
Howell, “He has developed a considerable talent into mastery across several disciplines.”
This eclectic mix of artists in the exhibition were educated at a variety of colleges, from Brooks, to Art Center College of Design, to Otis Art Institute, to Fresno State, and have a broad range of life and employment experiences, from military veteran, professional pilot, animator, film-maker, photographer, free-lance illustrator, magazine art director to graphic designer. Yet all are passionate about their artwork and all are passionate about their role as teachers and mentors of students of art, the budding artists, designers, photographers, animators and illustrators of the future.
The show will run from now through Nov. 25. Gallery hours are Monday through Thursday from 12 to 2 pm and 4 to 6 pm. Parking is unrestricted during the time of the reception. For other times, contact the front desk when you arrive to visit the show for a free temporary parking permit.
The Porterville College Art Gallery is located on campus at 100 East College Avenue in Porterville. Please contact Jim Entz at 791-2257 for more information.
