Reception | FASTA & Lost Trees
Join HCC Art Galleries for a combined reception for FASTA: HCC Faculty, Staff and Alumni Exhibition and Lost Trees at Gallery221@HCC Dale Mabry CampusThursday, October 13, 5 – 8 p.m.
A reinstalled version of FASTA: HCC Faculty, Staff and Alumni Exhibition will be on exhibition in the HCC Dale Mabry Library until December 1, 2022. Lost Trees is on exhibition October 10 – December 1, 2022 in Gallery221@HCC Dale Mabry.
Babs Reingold (American, born Caracas, Venezuela) is an internationally renowned artist whose mixed media sculptures, drawings and installations investigate themes such as the environment, poverty and beauty. In Lost Trees at Gallery221@HCC, Reingold combines assemblage, hand embroidery and appliqué graphite rubbing to create a materially rich site-specific installation. Elements like silk organza columns, upcycled paper bricks and yarn-wrapped tree limbs coalesce to form an immersive environment that is at once a celebration of the beauty and resilience of trees, as well as a poignant reminder of their ecological necessity as human-driven climate change threatens all life on this planet.
The HCC Art Galleries are pleased to reintroduce FASTA, a new biennial exhibition of HCC faculty, staff and alumni. This juried exhibition highlights the diversity and talent of those who have contributed to Hillsborough Community College past and present. Guest juror for this year’s exhibition in Gallery221@HCC is independent curator Katherine Gibson, who has selected innovative work from a range of media representative of the depth and breadth of the College’s creative community. Gibson, a former HCC Gallery Director from 2011 to 2014, instituted the first faculty and staff showcase during her tenure.
