JAMESTOWN - You are what you teach. It's a
concept that faculty members in Guilford Technical Community
College's Advertising and Graphic Design Department model not only
in the classroom but also outside the classroom in their own
"Students always want to know what their professors are doing,"
said James Williams, associate professor of advertising and graphic
design at GTCC. "Teachers talk about what they do, but can they
visually show the ideas they teach?"
With that in mind, Williams has
organized a Faculty Art Exhibit, showcasing original works by 11
faculty members. An opening reception will be held 10 a.m. to noon
Wednesday, April 16 in the Rotunda at Gerrald Hall on GTCC's
Jamestown Campus, 601 High Point Road. It is on view April 16 to
May 3. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
The exhibit will feature a wide range of mediums including
photography, mixed media, graphite and pottery. Williams says the
quality and variety of artwork in the exhibition demonstrates that
"we are creative in the ideas we teach," he said.

This is the Advertising and Graphic Design Department's second
faculty art exhibition. Williams organized the inaugural event in
April 2013 and decided to continue it this year with the hope that
it will grow into an annual tradition at the college.
