New Art Exhibit at Citrus College Aims to Inspire Students
Glendora, Calif. (Sept. 12, 2019) – An exciting new art exhibition that explores themes of inspiration and diversity held its opening reception on September 11 in the Citrus College Visual Arts Building Art Gallery.
"Under the Influence," sponsored by the Citrus College Foundation, features pieces created by 21 Citrus College art instructors and includes media ranging from ceramics to digital storytelling.
According to Dyane Duffy, the Citrus College faculty member who organized the show, the goal is to inspire current Citrus College students to produce their own works of art.
"Our students hail from a variety of backgrounds, and they each have incredibly moving and unique stories to share," Ms. Duffy said. "We hope that, by displaying pieces their instructors were inspired to make, they too would come under the influence of inspiration."
Following the opening, guests attended a presentation by three of the artists in the Visual Arts Building. The featured artists discussed their work before opening the presentation to a question-and-answer session.
Those who were unable to attend the reception can visit the exhibit until Thursday, October 3, by appointment or from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
"This institution has a robust and prolific visual arts program," said Dr. Geraldine M. Perri, superintendent/president of Citrus College. "Cultural events, such as 'Under the Influence,' afford the Citrus College community the opportunity to highlight its diverse offerings and state-of-the-art facilities, and promote the creation of new art. I am excited to see how our students will be inspired by this exhibition."
