Pellissippi State: Jane Reeves and Jess Courtney Exhibition
Photography by Jane Reeves and sculpture by Jessica Courtney, artists who serve as K-12 art teachers in Southern Indiana, are featured in the newest exhibit at Pellissippi State Community College.
Reception with the artists 3-5 p.m. Monday, Sept. 30, in the Gallery. Free and open to the public.
"Our visual arts teachers in K-12 education are on the front lines introducing our children to a better understanding of our immense visual culture," said Pellissippi State Associate Professor Herb Rieth, who knows both artists and invited them to show their work at the college. "K-12 arts and design teachers work long hours, with ever-diminishing resources, to bring their knowledge and talent to very diverse populations. They are often underrepresented in showing their work because they frequently do not have time to work on their own artistic output. Pellissippi State's Visual Art faculty value the work these individuals do in the community and want others to see their powerful work."
Reeves has chosen to exhibit a body of work exploring family and questioning home as a refuge. The collection has been in juried exhibitions in San Diego; Cambridge, Massachusetts; and Louisville, Kentucky. These pieces are among the sculpture Jessica Courtney has on display at Pellissippi State, artifacts of successes and failures in her studio practice. Courtney has been working in precious metals since 2007 and began exploring the capabilities of 3D rapid prototyping in 2009.

Soft/Serration: Current Works by Annie Rochelle and Colleen Thornbrugh
Opening Reception is Friday, September 6, 2019 5pm-7pm
Annie Rochelle is a practicing artist working and living in her hometown of Knoxville, Tennessee. Rochelle received a Bachelors of Fine Art in Painting and Art History at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, Maryland and studied Italian Renaissance Art History and Painting Conservation at the Studio Art Centers International in Florence, Italy. Her artistic interests are divided: between draftsmanship and experimental abstraction; the challenging marriage of Old Masters’ techniques and traditional subject matter with contemporary aesthetics and social sensibilities. Her new interest in botanical forms have opened a new investigation into the relationships among human, artificial, and natural aesthetics.
