Graphic Design and Multimedia Faculty Exhibit at MCC

Manchester Community College’s Hans Weiss Newspace Gallery has a show up now, “Graphic Design & Multimedia Faculty Exhibition,” and Ed Hogan, one of the participants, has a challenge for anyone who sees the exhibit.

Hogan likes to do computer-generated drawings of movie theaters, as if those movie theaters were designed by famous artists: Frank Stella, Roy Lichtenstein, Sol LeWitt, Piet Mondrian. Each drawing is filled with references to that artist. Can you find them all?

“I hope people have fun looking at these and can see all the little jokes I have put in them,” Hogan said. “The designs are jokes, even the movies in the posters are jokes.

In addition to Hogan’s artworks, the exhibit shows works by Richard Thomas (who is also director of exhibits at the Connecticut Science Center in Hartford), Maura O’Connor, Mike Toti, Laurie Grace, David Tow, Susan Brereton and Haruna Sumani.

Down the hall from the faculty exhibit is what the faculty calls the “Freak Show.” The show, which is up only until the end of this week, consists of whatever any art student wants to put on the wall.

The opening reception for the faculty exhibit is Thursday, March 29, from 6 to 8 p.m. The show is up until Wednesday, April 25. Hans Weiss Newspace Gallery is open weekdays, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturday 2 to 5 p.m.
