Come and get lost in mankind’s shared connection with Nature… You never know what you’ll find when exploring the “Back40.”
“Pond Nymph” and “Mud Lillies.”
The J. Ardis Bell Library – centrally located on the Northeast Campus of Tarrant County College (TCC) – is proud to host a month-long art exhibition, featuring the works of local artist Janlynn Rogers. The exhibit, entitled “Back40,” will run from May 14 thru June 13, 2019, in the main lobby area of the Library. The display is open to the entire Northeast Campus community during our normal business hours.
An artist’s reception will be held at the NE Library on Wednesday, June 5th. The artist will be available to answer questions from 2-4 PM, and then again from 6-8 PM. Refreshments provided.
“What the Willow Knows“
When describing her work, Guest Artist Janlynn Rogers wrote: “Many of my current series involve research of the biophilia hypothesis, that is, the human connection to the natural world, and study of the collective unconscious. Nature and the cyclic world are ever-present in my work, made apparent in my use of organic shapes, harmonious arrangements, and use of scale. Life is a measure of definitive time, and death is a measure of worth of life.
My work conveys my struggle to understand the common practice of sacrificing nature for technology’s sake. It allows me to investigate the comparative value of the empathetic versus the apathetic self, based on our interconnectedness to others in our environment.”
Janlynn Rogers is a 2019 graduate from the University of North Texas Arts program, with a double-major in Ceramics and Painting/Drawing. Come enjoy this diverse exhibit of painting, ceramics, and mixed-media artwork, curated by Ashley Roberts of the NE Library’s Computer Learning Center Team. The display is accompanied by a selection of titles from the Library’s collection, providing information on the artist’s media and studio tools.

The staff of the Northeast Library are pleased to present a wide variety of displays and exhibits throughout the year. It is just one more way in which we strive to educate, engage, and entertain our entire campus community, while expanding the learning experience outside of the traditional college classroom. We hope that you’ll come back often (to the Library, and to our blog page) to see what’s on display!
