Professor of Painting and Drawing Al Denyer recently attended the annual SECAC conference in Baltimore, MD. SECAC (formerly the Southeastern College Art Conference) is a non-profit organization that promotes the study and practice of the visual arts in higher education on a national basis. Al is coming to the end of her second elected 3 year term as 'At Large Board Member, representing the West Region', and at this year's conference she chaired the panel ‘Creative Responses: Innovative Projects and Teaching Strategies’, which explored a range of innovative teaching projects and strategies used for Studio and Art History courses in response to the COVID-19 restrictions. Panelists included Glenn Shrum from Parsons School of Design, Raquel Salvatella de Prada from Duke University, Christopher Lonegan from Loyola University Maryland, and Amy Beecham from University of North Florida.
Additionally, two acrylic and ink paper pieces from Denyer's ‘Borders and Boundaries’ series were selected for an exhibition of work by SECAC members, juried by the artist and curator Jeffrey Kent, at the Decker Gallery at MICA.
