Kilgore College holds first art exhibit of semester | Local News

KILGORE — Kilgore College is staging its first public art exhibit of the 2021-22 academic year.

The KC Visual Arts Department presents “After Solomon” by artist Lorianne Hubbard through Sept. 22 in the Anne Dean Turk Fine Arts Gallery on the Kilgore campus.

Hubbard fell in love with drawing at a young age and developed a strong interest in charcoal in high school, according to information from the college. In 2016, she earned a bachelor’s degree in fine art from the University of Texas at Tyler and also later earned a master’s degree at UT Tyler.

Her focus is in drawing and is characterized by the representational rendering of human and paper forms, according to the college. She uses traditional drawing media such as charcoal and black pastels.

Her work is a contemplation on spirituality and the existential condition, according to information about the exhibit.

Hubbard’s creative interests go beyond visual art. She is also a songwriter, mandolin player (and teacher) and singer in her family’s five-piece band. Together, they have performed live music all over the United States and internationally for more than a decade.

She was born in Reno, Nevada, and has lived in East Texas since 1998.

Gallery hours are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Friday. Admission is free.
