Art Among the Stacks

Terry Spangler Dunham, Duluth, Minnesota

Hibbing Community College Library's exhibition program presents "Art Among the Stacks" featuring Artist Terry Spangler Dunham.

Currently Terry's work focuses on images of nature and/or the concept of belonging, one’s place in the world or the universe.

Terry holds a BFA in drawing from Kansas State University and a BA from Pennsylvania State University, with an emphasis in drawing and photography. She has been fortunate to live in visually stimulating and inspiring places: rural Kansas, Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and, currently, along the south shore of Lake Superior.

This exhibit will be on display in the HCC Library from February 1st through March 31st, 2017. The exhibit is available for viewing during Library Hours (Monday - Thursday 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM, Fridays 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM and Saturdays 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM).
