New Faculty Exhibit: “Converging Landscapes”

SCC’s spring art exhibit “Converging Landscapes” is a display of creative pieces by artists and SCC instructors Nicholas Enevoldsen and Gary Georger. Enevoldsen’s unique series of oil compositions, “The Modern Spectacle,” draws from everyday life, remaining both vague and familiar. Georger’s background as a potter allows him to construct his pieces with clay.

McDonald spent 19 months in a men’s prison and has argued that her case was clearly discriminatory.
