Faculty Biennial 2020


Just Food

February 1- May 21

In order to create a just food system, we must honor the earth, value the work of those producing our food, respect food sovereignty, and ensure that everyone has enough. The artists in this exhibition are addressing these issues. Featuring work by: Jackie Amezquita, Sula Bermúdez-Silverman, Narsiso Martinez, Nikki McClure, Sara Rosenblatt, Chip Thomas.


Fullerton College’s reputation is tied to the quality of its art exhibitions and visiting artists. These exhibitions include the works of established artists who participate in the Fullerton College Artist-in Residence Program, the works of local emerging and mid-career artists, borrowed works of public and private collections, as well as the artworks of students attending and enrolled in Fullerton College fine art studio classes. Fullerton College owns an impressive Permanent Art Collection, which is showcased biennially; alternating exhibition years with the Faculty Exhibition. The gallery goal is to show diverse exhibitions that represent various disciplines in art and span a wide range of curatorial theme and focus.


The Fullerton College Art Department is one of the select few college art departments in the nation can boast of a viable and prestigious Artist in Residence program. When California artist Wayne Thiebaud helped launch the first residency in the early 1970’s, the Art Department perhaps had no idea that a new chapter in its history was about to be written. Who really knew then that this “happening” would grow into the most important and defining tradition of the department? Decades later, this yearly event continues to inspire not only students and staff, but also the local art community. We continue to welcome top-flight national and international artists who represent a wide range of styles, themes and issues in their work. The impressive list of guest artists include Miriam Schapiro, Gronk, Lisa Congdon, and Stephen Silver, just to name a few.


The Fullerton College Art Department is indeed very proud to be in the possession of a very fine and envied collection of paintings, drawings, prints, and other objets d’art. As I wandered through our collection late last spring, I was immediately struck by the overall beauty of this modest, but precious collection of visual surprises. The Fullerton College Art Collection exemplifies what a college art collection should: education, inspiration, and the ability to move us all.
