CCCD Features Work of Internationally Exhibited Artist


Oct. 12, 2004 –Collin County Community College District will display the work of artist Don Scaggs Oct. 20-Nov. 12 in THE ARTS gallery, room A175, at the college’s Spring Creek Campus, 2800 E. Spring Creek Parkway, in Plano. An artist’s reception will be held 6:30 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 20 in THE ARTS gallery.

Free and open to the public, Scaggs’ exhibit will display recent mixed-media pieces that embrace color, texture and an expressionistic use of geometric and organic forms on canvas, paper and wood structures.

A retired University of North Texas professor of visual art, Scaggs has exhibited his artwork internationally, and he has been teaching visual art since 1963. He holds a master’s degree in painting and printmaking from Purdue University.

“I have an ongoing preoccupation with color and texture; especially those found in the natural environment; weathered wooden surfaces, rusted metal, dried grasses and other surfaces that seem touched by the passage of time and change,” said Scaggs.

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, visit the gallery website at, or call THEARTS gallery at 972.881.5873.
