Art Reception Friday, Nov. 16

Public invited to Art Reception with featured artists Mark Dickson and Lisa Thompson Friday, Nov. 16

MADISON, FL – North Florida Community College instructors Mark Dickson and Lisa Thompson are the featured artists for this month’s exhibit at NFCC’s Hardee Center for the Arts. Their exhibit “Constructions & Sketches” is on display now through Nov. 30. The public is invited to a reception and “meet and greet” with the artists this Friday, Nov. 16 from 6-7:30 p.m. at the Hardee Center for the Arts (NFCC campus, Bldg. 11). All are invited to attend.

Mark Dickson is a professional sculptor and painter with a working studio, Mark Dickson Studios, in Tallahassee. He starts with concepts like form, negative space, and abstract suggestion. Then, guided by themes like music, flight, wind, water, machinery, and even personal guardians, he shapes freestanding or pedestal-mounted sculptures. He currently instructs NFCC’s new Metal Sculpture class and is scheduled to teach a new offering of the class in January. Dickson recently helped NFCC students fabricate and install a public sculpture on the NFCC campus, near Van H. Priest Auditorium, entitled “Forest Totems.” In 2010 he was commissioned to create a sculpture entitled “Transit” for the City of Tallahassee’s StarMetro public transportation headquarters. Another of his works entitled “Windjammer” stands at the entrance to Railroad Square Art Park in Tallahassee and in July 2012 he completed a 14 feet tall outdoor sculpture for Valdosta State University entitled “Guardian.” Dickson was the Council on Culture & Arts featured artist in the April 29, 2012 edition of the Tallahassee Democrat.

Lisa Thompson teaches Painting Composition, Basic Drawing, Ceramics, Design and Humanities Art at NFCC. She is also the gallery director and curator for the Hardee Center for the Arts and Coordinator of the Public Art Program at NFCC. Her art reflects an interest in rendering objects illusionistically. With this new series, Thompson uses water color pencils and ink to investigate often overlooked and “insignificant” insects appreciating their textures, colors and complexity.

“This series came to me unexpectedly as a result of a conversation with a fellow artist,” said Thompson. “I was professing my intense dislike for bugs and he argued that these creatures are actually quite beautiful in their perfectly constructed forms and therefore exist, really, as little jewels. Immediately after that, it was as if bugs were finding me- or perhaps I was seeing them in a different light. My husband and daughter found a Luna Moth in the backyard and, after photographing it, I felt compelled to draw. And then it began. Using water color pencils and ink, I set out to capture these often overlooked and ‘insignificant’ creatures and find myself appreciating their textures, colors and complexity…from a distance.

“Constructions & Sketches” is open to the public during regular gallery hours: Monday & Wednesday, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. and Tuesday & Thursday, 8-9:30 a.m. and 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Stop by and meet the artists this Friday, Nov. 16 anytime between 6-7:30 p.m. For more information, contact Lisa Thompson at (850) 973-1642 or thompsonl@nfcc.edu
