FMU to feature photographs, clay sculptures, Aug. 6-Sept. 29
Photographs by Ann Lane and clay sculptures by Lin Barnhardt will be on display as part of Francis Marion University’s Art Gallery Series, Aug. 6 through Sept. 29.

The exhibits are open to the public, free of charge, and may be viewed between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, in the Hyman Fine Arts Center gallery.

Lane’s exhibit is titled “Xochimilco: La Isla de las Munecas.” Lane is a native and resident of Marion County. She studied under Jo Brenzo and Teresa Airey at the New England Photographic Workshop in New Milford, Conn.

She went on two travel workshops with Brenzo to Mexico and later studied with her at the Centro Cultural El Nigromante and in private classes in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. She has also taken workshops taught by George Krause, Dan Berkholder and Jill Burkholder.

Lane retired from Wellman Inc. of Johnsonville in 1997 after 27 years.

Barnhardt’s exhibit is titled “Homage to Hopper and Other Structures.” He graduated from Appalachian State University in 1974 with a B.S. degree in art education. His undergraduate concentrations were in painting and printmaking. He later attended graduate school at ASU, obtaining an M.A. degree.

Barnhardt has taught art at the secondary level in the public schools of North Carolina, including 10 years at Apex Senior High School in Apex, and two years at A.L. Brown High School in Kannapolis. He has been a faculty member at Mount Pleasant Middle School in Mount Pleasant since 1988.

In May 1997, Barnhardt began his current approach of incorporating his interests in architecture, sculpture, and painting into one art form.
