Director of Continuing Studies Shows “Migrate” in Scottville
She's not just our clever Director of Youth & Adults. Brenda Sipe is an active artist working with both traditional and explorative materials. Greatly influenced by nature, her sculpture and drawing work can currently been seen in her solo show, "Migrate," at West Shore Community College's Manierre Dawson Gallery, in Scottville, Mich. After having seen her work in the Muskegon Regional Art Exhibit , Curator Rebecca Mott invited Brenda to West Shore. "I first saw two monoprints from her Migration Series ... and was attracted to the poetic, and even mythic quality, I found in her imagery."
"Her large sculptural piece, Sing, adds a very interesting element to our gallery and has garnered a most favorable response," Mott continues. "This exhibit will give our students and the community much to think about."
Sipe has also been pleased with the results of the exhibit and the recognition it brings to the Youth and Adults/Continuing Studies program. "It speaks well of the department," she says. "Students can be confident they are learning from qualified instructors - active, exhibiting artists who know not only their subject matter but the industry as well. I'm glad to be able to demonstrate that."
The exhibit will be on display through March 3, 2013. Click here for exhibition details.
