Four Haywood Community College students and one faculty member will represent the college at the 2012 NC Community Colleges Art Exhibition.
Christopher Cagle, a crafts fiber student; Nathaniel Chambers, a crafts wood student; Kira Farrington, a business administration student; Lillian Parks, a continuing education faculty member; and Cory Plott, a crafts clay student all have work in the show.
Chamber’s work is titled “A Bowl with a Hole is Not a Piece of Firewood.” Farrington’s photography is the winner of the People’s Choice Award for HCC’s first Photo Contest and is called “Dead End.” Parks’ watercolor is titled “Melons.” Plott’s ceramic piece is called “The Chicken of Creation.”
The Visual Art Exchange, the oldest non-profit visual arts organization in Raleigh, awarded Cagle’s piece, an untitled wall hanging, second place for an art excellence prize. The art exhibition is open to each of the 58 community colleges in North Carolina. Artwork from all media is represented in the show, and the pieces remain on display for the entire year.
