Those who can, do; those who can't, teach — right? The current exhibit in the St. Vincent Gallery at St. Vincent College says otherwise.

On display through Oct. 9 is the St. Vincent Art Faculty Group Show, with works in various media by seven faculty members from the fine arts and communications departments on the Unity campus.

Featured artists include Brother Mark Floreanini, associate professor of visual arts; Ben Schachter, professor of visual arts and chair of the fine arts department; David Safin, assistant professor of communication; Jeremy Boyle and Joseph Materkowski, lecturers in art; George Fetkovich, lecturer in communication; and Richard Stoner, lecturer in visual arts.

A group of Floreanini's students got a break from their usual evening class Sept. 8 to attend the opening reception.

“It's nice to come out and see what other artists are doing,” said contemporary furniture designer Paul Sirofchuck. He was accompanied by his wife, artist and gallery owner Mandy, and daughter Clair, 16, another young artist with St. Vincent on her short list of college choices.

Also on hand were gallery director Ann Holmes, Adalberto andRamie Ortiz, Doreen Blandino, Carol Riddle, Alejandra C. Smyntek, Tim Kelly, Marilee Fetkovich withEmma andLuke, Diane Swetz, CeceliaMenarchek, Robert Foschia, Chris Foschia andDon Orlando.
