What started in 1991 as a means of honoring NE student writers has expanded into a place to recognize visual artists as well.

Under the Clock Tower, the English department’s literary journal and display of TCC’s finest student writing, proceeded to add art and photography to the mix of displays.

These visual art pieces are on display in College Hall (NCAB 1111) through Oct. 29.

Cindy Hurt, art associate professor, said the pieces were chosen by the art department.

“We had a jury system this year,” she said. “Faculty members submit digital images, and then from there, five faculty members edited down to 22 pieces.”

Hurt was in charge of selecting the art work.

“We want to represent the department, so we’re looking for the best in different mediums, different techniques and different subjects,” she said.

Associate professors Richard Doherty and Patricia Richards made the initial selection of photography pieces.

“I’m very excited that the best students in the photography area are being shown because their work is conceptually based and challenges the viewer,” Doherty said.

Doherty said he liked all the work he and Richards submitted to the faculty jury, and he was happy to see all of his students’ works on display.

Laura Hallman, one of the 22 students selected, said she was honored.

“This is my second year to get selected,” she said.

“I am very intrigued by small things in architecture. I like to make the small things stand out.”

Silver gelatin is her selected medium.
