CCCCD Arts Gallery Hosts "Slow"

February 6, 2004 - Collin County Community College District's THE ARTS gallery presents "Slow," Thursday, Feb. 12 - Friday, March 13 at the Spring Creek Campus, 2800 E. Spring Creek Parkway in Plano. An artist reception will be held at 5 p.m., Thursday, March 4.

Following his recent exhibition, Quick, Derrick White, artist, teacher and gallery director, will open an exhibition titled, Slow. While Quick focused on paintings created with an emphasis on speed, spontaneity and intuitive design, Slow will display works created with a more meticulous approach to process. The works were developed through pre-planning and preliminary works, methodical execution, an elapsing narrative or simply slow drying, controlled paint drips. White's intention is not creating opposing exhibitions but exploring what two apparently opposite approaches actually have in common specific to his creative process.

Derrick White is an artist working in a variety of media. His work has been honored with several awards including two best of shows and is in many private and public collections. He is a full-time faculty member at Tyler Junior College and is the gallery director for the TJC Wise Auditorium Art Gallery.

Gallery hours are Monday - Thursday 9 a.m. - 8 p.m., Friday 9 a.m. - 5 p.m., and Saturday 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. For more information, call THE ARTS gallery at 972.881.5873 or visit
