Feeling And Form

Suffolk County Community College and its Eastern Campus celebrate the addition of two new faculty members with a show of the pair’s works at the campus’ Lyceum Gallery from January 27 to February 15.

Meredith Starr, Professor of Drawing and 2D Design, and Richard Mack, Professor of Graphic Design will be exhibiting their drawings, prints, and collages in a show entitled Feeling and Form.

Starr’s artwork gives visibility to the invisible.  She uses drawings and prints layered with video and sound to express the way the body reacts to different stimuli. Mack creates large scale collages that reflect his keen design ability. Some of Mack’s compositions are colorful, textural works that celebrate the beauty of typography.  For more info call the Lyceum Gallery 631-548-2536.
