Graphic Novel Art on Display at NECC
Art work by Northern Essex Community College students from the 2014 “Art and Literature of the Graphic Novel” class will be on display through Saturday, December 6, in the ArtSpace located in the Bentley Library on the Haverhill campus, 100 Elliot St.
The exhibit, titled “Tales from the Valley,” is free and open to the public. An opening reception will be held Thursday, December 4, from 3 to 5 p.m.
Professors and students from NECC will show their techniques for creating original graphic novels.
Artwork in the exhibit grew out of the “Art and Literature of the Graphic Novel” learning community class taught by professors Marc Mannheimer and Ginger Hurajt in the spring 2014 semester. In this class students read and analyzed a variety of graphic novels as well as created their own over the semester.
Works that will be on display will be from the culminating project, “Tales from the Valley,” containing stories about the Merrimack Valley, ranging from historical, to autobiographical, to fiction/science fiction.
The “Art and Literature of the Graphic Novel” learning community will be offered in the spring 2015 semester. To learn more about learning communities at Northern Essex, visithttp://www.necc.mass.edu/academics/enrichment/learning-communities/
