Hinds CC’s colorful art tradition showcased in special Centennial show

Pieces of artwork from about 40 artists with connections to Hinds Community College are expected to be submitted for the Centennial Art Show, slated to run Sept. 25-Oct. 27 in the Marie Hull Art Gallery on the Raymond Campus.

Showcase artists include Bob Dunaway, former chair of the Art Department at Hinds, Mississippi artists Wyatt Waters and Bill Dunlap, stained glass artist Jerry Hymel and fashion designer Gary Feazelle, among others.

“The theme here will be the connections these artists have to Hinds,” said Sarah Teasley, chair of the Art Department and director for the art gallery.

Pieces from current faculty and other former faculty, students and alumni are also expected to be submitted, Teasley said.

A reception is scheduled in the gallery at 4 p.m. Oct. 10. For more information, contact Teasley at 601.857.3274 or sarah.teasley@ hindscc.edu.

“A visual arts program of study is essential to a well-rounded educational institution, and the prominent display of original works by Mississippi artists in areas throughout the Hinds campuses is a reminder of that,” Dunaway said.

Current and former faculty expected to participate in the exhibit note the longstanding influence the program at Hinds has had on the art scene in Mississippi and beyond.

One example is the ongoing, competitive art exhibit for art students in the state’s two-year colleges, largely organized by the Hinds Art Department, said Gayle McCarty, former art department chair and gallery director at Hinds, whose husband, Mike, also taught art at Hinds, at the Utica Campus. The McCartys’ two sons and grandson also attended Hinds.

“The competition is hosted by the different colleges throughout the state and provides an opportunity for a broad exposure to new ideas and insights,” McCarty said. “Many students who have been a part of the Art program over the years have told me how meaningful their experiences in Art at Hinds were to their career choices as well as to the enrichment of their lives.”

The Hinds Art Department was established in 1949 by Katherine Denton, for whom the art building on the Raymond Campus is named. According to a 1983 Hindsight article, classes were first held in a dorm room of Williams Hall, which burned in 2016.

The following year, the art program moved across the hall from President Dr. George McLendon’s office and had its first exhibit. As the program grew, it moved from location to location, including in the library, until McLendon suggested that “we just build an art

building. A fine arts building.”

The Katherine Denton Art Building, which opened in 1968, also houses the Marie Hull Gallery, named for the renowned Mississippi artist in 1972.

In 1980, another Mississippi artist Andrew Bucci, one of Hull’s former students, exhibited at Hinds. Hull donated several Bucci pieces to Hinds, and he donated several himself, for a total of 10. In 1983, Dunaway spearheaded having the reference room at the McLendon Library renamed the Andrew Bucci Reference Room in his honor.

Childhood memory, other inspirations turn into first place art awards for Hinds CC students

Growing up in Mexico, Sol Dominguez cherished moments of play when they happened, mainly with her older brother, Alonso.

In February, one moment photographed years ago in black and white became an intriguing mix of colors on her computer screen – and won her a first place prize in the process.

“The little boy is my brother, and I’m the little girl,” Dominguez said. “My father was always taking pictures of us.”

Dominguez, who lives in Canton with her mother and is hearing-impaired, took first place in the graphic design category of the Mississippi Community & Junior College Art Instructor’s Association State Art Competition earlier this semester. The winning piece was based on a photo of Alonso helping Sol, then a toddler, push a stroller across the family living room. Their father took the photo in 1973, she said.

“It is called “My Brother and Me”,” Dominguez said.

In all, seven students at Hinds took home awards in four categories at this year’s ceremony, held at Itawamba Community College in Fulton. The event site rotates among the state’s 15 community colleges each year.

Winners also included:

  • Nicolette Davis, of Vicksburg, first place, photography, “Barbie-Q”
  • T’Merius Bell, of Port Gibson, third place, printmaking, “Ursus Kingdom”
  • Lindsey Pace, of Vicksburg, third place, photography, “Together”
  • Tenisha Webber, of Jackson, third place, ceramics, “Aged Elegance”
  • Mary Saphrona Grey, of Yazoo City, honorable mention, printmaking, “For Safe Keeping”
  • Darla Schallenberger, of Richland, honorable mention, ceramics, “Corn Dog”

“It is a great opportunity for our art students,” said Melanie Atkinson, an art instructor at Hinds’ Raymond Campus and director of the art gallery on campus. “For most, it is the first time that any of their work has been presented and seen in a professional setting. It is also the students’ first real insight into all the work that goes on behind the scenes of a real art show. The learning experience for them is invaluable.”

At Hinds CC, Beemon Hall mosaic merges science, art

At Hinds CC, Beemon Hall mosaic merges science, art

Paula Duren

Paula Duren

The following story was originally published in the spring 2015 issue of Hindsight alumni magazine.

For a video interview with Paula Lick Duren about her mosaic, see https://youtu.be/zdogwy48DbA

Six years ago a trip to Costa Rica gave Hinds Community College art instructor Paula Lick Duren (1973) of Raymond an idea for an art project. She didn’t dream at the time it would take nearly five years to complete, and that it would one day find a home in the newly renovated science building, Beemon Hall, on the Raymond Campus.

That might seem like an unusual setting for the 4-foot-by-8-foot brightly colored mosaic, but once you know the inspiration behind it that makes perfect sense.

Duren, a Raymond native, grew up five blocks away from Hinds. Enrolling at Hinds was a foregone conclusion. As an art major she studied under former art department chair Bob Dunaway.

“I took drawing, painting and ceramics — everything they offered because I had always drawn and always created things. I knew I wanted to be an artist,” she said.

She finished her bachelor’s degree at the University of Southern Mississippi in 1975 and then signed up for the Army in order to get the G.I. Bill to pay for a master’s degree. “I went in as the helicopters were landing in Vietnam picking up people at the embassy,” she said.

She spent her three years in Washington, first as a Morse Code translator and then as a graphic illustrator for military intelligence. She married, lost her husband in a car accident, remarried and had a baby. She eventually finished the master’s degree she started while she was in the military at Mississippi College in 1986 while working as a graduate assistant at Hinds for Dunaway and Russell Schneider.

After Dunaway retired and Schneider became chair in 1990, Duren came on staff full time with stints as the Art Club adviser and Marie Hull Art Gallery director. Her first job at Hinds included teaching classes at different locations, even at Grand Gulf Nuclear Plant.

In 2008 she was invited on the international study trip to Costa Rica in the Honors Environmental Biology class taught by Sharon Feaster. The program was led by then Honors Institute dean Kristi Sather-Smith. Duren enrolled as a student in the class but also went as an art teacher. “I took sketch books and a notebook,” she said.

Everyone took cameras and shared photos. She became fascinated with the art in Costa Rica. “I started noticing all the mosaics. They would do mosaics in rock and stone, tumbled glass and shells and even painting them. It was just everywhere. It was on the wheels of coffee carts. It was painted on the walls. Or it was in jewelry. It was mosaics everywhere,” she said.

“So I said let’s make a mosaic. Oh, we can do it,” she said. But Duren felt that stone would be too heavy. She came up with the idea of using paint sample chips. She and many others collected them over time, separating them in piles by color family.

Using photos, her sketchbook and notebook as guides, Duren penciled scenes and wildlife from Costa Rica onto the stained board. Duren drafted the students from the initial trip as well as a follow-up trip, plus Art Club members and instructors who were part of international study trips to spend thousands of hours cutting the samples into tiny, irregularly shaped pieces and gluing them onto the board.

Sather-Smith, who retired in summer 2013, wanted the mosaic for the back wall in the Honors headquarters in Jenkins Hall. But Feaster was keen on having it in Beemon Hall because of the wildlife it depicted from the environmental biology trip.

“When she initially talked about creating the mural, I was so hoping that one day it could be hung in Beemon Hall,” Feaster said. “Today, we are delighted to have it here in Beemon, and we often see students reflecting upon it. It provides the perfect opportunity for the biology faculty to encourage them to consider participating in the next study in Costa Rica!”

When an extensive renovation of Beemon Hall was completed just before the spring 2015 semester began, the mosaic was mounted in a wood frame under Plexiglas and put on the wall under special lighting.

“I didn’t know it was up until (Jan. 6) convocation. I was flabbergasted,” Duren said. Duren’s next project is to create a legend that will explain what’s depicted in it.

About the mosaic:

The top part of the mosaic is the skyline that includes Costa Rica’s Arenal Volcano. The top left side is daylight with the right side going into the night.

It includes a stream, waterfalls, the bay, the rainforest, the coffee fields, banana plantation and mangroves. It also includes “every creature that I could think of that we had seen,” Duren said. Those include the spider monkeys, howling monkeys, viper snakes, the Blue Morpho butterfly and other insects, parrots, toucans, the hummingbirds, sea turtles, crab, octopus.

 

About Beemon Hall:

With a total construction cost of a little more than $4.1 million, every room in Beemon Hall, approximately 25 classrooms and labs, plus offices, was upgraded. Its last renovation was in 1983. The renovation started in June 2012 and finished in November 2014.

The general contractor for the project was Coleman Hammons Construction Company Inc. of Brandon. The architect was Duvall Decker Architects, P.A., Jackson.

Beemon Hall is named for T.T. Beemon, who was science chairman on the Raymond Campus and taught biology from 1946 to 1983.

He and his wife Emma were named co-winners of the Alumni Service Award in 1990. He died in September 2007.

 

As Mississippi’s largest community college, Hinds Community College is a comprehensive institution offering quality, affordable educational opportunities with more than 170 academic, career and technical programs. With six locations in central Mississippi, Hinds enrolled nearly 12,000 credit students in fall 2014. To learn more, visit www.hindscc.edu or call 1.800.HindsCC

Hinds CC art students accepted to competition

Four Hinds Community College art students were accepted to the annual People’s Choice Art Competition at the Meridian Museum of Art in July. They submitted original pieces of art, which they created during their art courses at Hinds’ Raymond Campus.

The students who were accepted, and the titles of their sculptures, were Morgan Ainsworth of Vicksburg, Not for Soup; Linda Beasley of Utica, Summer Plaid; Breana Watkins of Edwards, High Heel Classic; and Christena Wiebe of Clinton, Teapot.

The People’s Choice Competition includes works under the categories of mixed media, watercolor, oil, photography, acrylic, D-P-P (drawing, pastel, and printmaking), other, and Best in Show. This annual competition allows the community to vote and decide which work of art will win in each of the eight categories with cash prizes being awarded to the winners of each category.

One additional student, Megan White of Clinton, has been accepted to the Annual Bi-State Art Competition at the Meridian Museum of Art, running August 20 – October 18. The Bi-state is a juried exhibition offering over $3,000 in awards and prizes including the $1,000 Best of Show Award. The purpose of the exhibition is to showcase contemporary artists in Mississippi and Alabama and reward their efforts.

White’s sculpture is titled Bull in a China Shop. She was instructed to create a self-portrait which could be human, animal or a combination of the two. The bust is a human torso with a bull head and is made of clay, and the surface is encaustic, or colored wax. The arm is a plaster cast made from a mold of her arm. The surface is covered in encaustic and shellac, and her hand holds a teacup.

JATC library to host art exhibit

The Hinds Community College Jackson Campus – Academic/Technical Center library will host the art work of faculty member, Dr. B. Spurlock, Feb. 18 – March 1.

His paintings feature themes of freedom, justice and equality that were prevalent in speeches made by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. during the Civil Rights struggles of the 1960s.

Dr. Spurlock is a native of Leflore County in the Mississippi Delta. He is currently a full-time instructor at Hinds’ Jackson Campus-Academic/Technical Center where he teaches courses in chemistry, physical science and algebra.

He has also been employed as a research scientist at the U.S. Department of Defense in Maryland and as a faculty member in the chemistry department at Jackson State University. He resides in Jackson with his wife and two daughters.

For more information on the art exhibit, call 601.987.8123 or visit www.hindscc.edu.
