Communication faculty member Dylan Wolfe, Ph.D., is the new director for the Gallery at Mercer. "I am excited to assume this post," he said. "The MCCC Gallery is well known as a beautiful exhibit space that opens its doors for the community to enjoy. It is a rich educational resource for our students - young people exploring their artistic talents, as well as seasoned artists who take classes at Mercer. I look forward to creating exhibitions that will showcase the talents on our campus and in the community."
The faculty show includes works by full-time and adjunct faculty who teach visual arts, advertising design, digital media arts and fashion. Artwork is in a variety of mediums, including photography, painting, fashion, textile and several interactive pieces.
