Valencia Exhibit Showcases Works by Drawing, Printmaking Professor

Valencia College will host a one-week exhibition of artwork by artist and Valencia professor Andrew Downey Oct. 10-18 at Valencia College’s East Campus, in the Anita S. Wooten Gallery.

To kick off the exhibition, Valencia will host a reception for Downey on Thursday, Oct. 10 from 4 to 5:30 p.m. in the gallery.

The exhibition, titled “Demo’d: Art in Teaching,” showcases a body of more than 150 works created by Downey, who teaches drawing, printmaking and design at Valencia. An installation of works in various stages used as class demonstrations, the pieces in this exhibition have never been seen outside of the classroom.  Some date back as far as ten years while others are only several days old.

Viewers are likely to experience visual overload when first entering the gallery, but they’ll also see a vast and energetic range of demos created over time – as well as a body of work emanating from the art of teaching.

The Anita S. Wooten Gallery is located in Building 3, room 112, on Valencia’s East Campus, 701 N. Econlockhatchee Trail, Orlando.

The gallery is open from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. For more information, please call 407-582-2298 or 407-582-2268.
