October 12–November 9, 2018
Watercolor paintings of the Hope College campus by Bruce McCombs are the focus of this exhibition, celebrating his 50th anniversary teaching at the school. Hope’s ever-changing campus has provided intriguing subject matter for his work, where he has never ceased to find something new for a painting. Some of his past works have been displayed in solo exhibitions in the De Pree Art Center and Gallery in 2002, 2005 and 2011, and have also been featured on Hope College calendars and can be seen on the office walls of many of Hope’s buildings.
McCombs actively displays his prints and paintings throughout the U.S. and around the world. His artwork has been procured by many permanent collections both nationally and internationally, including the Fort Wayne Museum of Art, the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., and the National Museum of Fine Arts in Hanoi, Vietnam.
A member of the Hope faculty since 1969, McCombs holds his B.F.A. from the Cleveland Institute of Art and his M.F.A from Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana.
