(Cincinnati, OH) – The Studio San Giuseppe Art Gallery, at Mount St. Joseph University, is pleased to present an exhibition featuring the teacher as artist. The eleventh biennial Parallel Visions XI, October 30 – December 2, 2016 showcases recent artworks from a talented group of regional art educators, highlighting their ongoing commitment to the visual arts in the classroom and from their own studios. We anticipate over fifty Tri-State primary, middle, and secondary art teachers will be represented in this multi-media exhibition. The example set by these educators is a valuable teaching tool and motivation for all artists/teachers, as well as their students. A Gallery Reception will be held on Sunday, October 30, from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. The public is cordially invited to meet these artists/teachers and enjoy the opening festivities.Regarding Parallel Visions, Sylvia Dick, Co-Director of Art Education at MSJ, states, "Parallel Visions is a unique opportunity to view the work of the people who inspire and are inspired by young beginning artists. These teachers have found their own creative voices while helping others find theirs. The art works expose the teaching artists’ passion, introspection and dedication to visual expression.”Co-Director of Art Education at MSJ, Susan Lawrence adds, "I am thrilled that Studio San Giuseppe is recognizing and celebrating the artistic achievements of area art educators in its exhibit Parallel Visions. It is truly their vision, knowledge, and skills that shape the next generation by effectively engaging their students, colleagues, and school communities in learning experiences in, through and about the arts. Parallel to that vision, these dedicated art educators also have the passion to grow as professional artists in their own right, as witness by the quality and diversity of artwork presented in this exhibit."
