HCC art exhibit

A new exhibit featuring the work of artists Kate Keely and Jennifer Hand will be on display from March 18 to April 4 at the Kepler Center on Hagerstown Community College’s main campus.


The exhibit, “Still in Motion,” will feature paintings, drawings and mixed-media pieces that explore themes such as life, strength, transition and renewal.

Keely, of Frostburg, Md., is an adjunct instructor at HCC and Frostburg State University. Keely has a Master of Fine Arts in mixed media from Radford University, two bachelor’s degrees from Mary Baldwin College and is a doctoral student in community college administration at Morgan State University.

She has been actively exhibiting her artwork since 1989.

Hand, of Dublin, Va., is an instructor of studio art at the Virginia Tech School of Visual Arts. Hand has a Master of Fine Arts from Radford University and a bachelor of fine arts from Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Mich. Like Keely, Hand has been actively exhibiting her work for a number of years. She has participated in more than 70 exhibitions since 1991.

An opening reception will be Thursday, March 28, beginning at 6 p.m. at the Kepler Center. The reception will coincide with HCC’s annual Kreykenbohm Lecture, which will be at 7 p.m. at Kepler Theater.
