“Hidden Talents” will feature nine artists who practice artmaking in their other lives, beyond the desk or classroom. The exhibit takes advantage of today’s climate, promoting greater access to learning, both virtual and in person.
“The LSC-Kingwood Fine Art Gallery traditionally hosts work by students, faculty, and professional working artists. However, this exhibit showcases the talent and artworks of LSC-Kingwood employees, many of whom work in disciplines other than art,” said Kristine Larson, LSC-Kingwood gallery director.
First proposed several years ago, the concept seemed to re-emerge periodically. The value in exploring and publishing employees’ creations became apparent. Although this free exhibit is not a juried show or contest, it supports and brings attention to the ways people find balance in their lives by expressing their ideas.
“This online exhibition supports a greater sense of community and inclusion by sharing ideas and talents across the board,” Larson said.
Contributing artists are T.C. Anderson, Rosemary Cantu, Kirbe Holley, Colleen Horrocks, David Ragsdale, Diana Sorensen, Angie Spargur, Jim Stubbs, and Jason Watson. Audiences can view “Hidden Talents” at lonestar.edu/arts-kingwood.htm.
“This rare opportunity allows me to share some personal art based on the real highlights of my 31 years teaching English before I retire this year,” Ragsdale said.
