An exhibition of artwork by studio faculty at Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts of the University of New Haven opens at the College’s Chauncey Stillman Gallery on Friday, Sept. 12, with a reception from 6 to 8 p.m. The reception is free and open to the public: all are welcome.

Thirteen members of the College’s studio faculty are exhibiting in a variety of media in this exhibition. The chairs of the Painting, Drawing and Sculpture Departments—respectively Susan Stephenson, Randy Melick and Brian Booth Craig—will all be exhibiting along with their colleagues in those departments. The Illustration Department, which now comprises three acclaimed professional illustrators, will also have examples of their work on display. Two of the Illustration faculty – Dale Stephanos and John Sideriadis—are new to the College this academic year. Chairs and faculty members from all departments will be present at the opening reception to discuss their works.

Campus Dean Todd Jokl comments, “The faculty exhibition is a wonderful opportunity that highlights the exceptional artist educators who make this institution such an excellent teaching facility. Each member of the faculty is an outstanding and highly respected working artist in her or his own right.  This exhibition will showcase their exceptional talents.”
