Dedicated in honor of former BPCC art instructor and professional artist, Donna Service, the gallery promotes student success and provides an opportunity for BPCC to further connect with the community, both artistic and at large. The gallery hosts approximately five exhibits throughout the year, featuring a variety of media, including paintings, drawings, ceramics, sculptures, mixed media, and photographs which explore a diverse range of topics. Artists represented are primarily regional artists, college students, BPCC faculty and staff, along with artists working with community arts organizations.

Beyond Duty: Artwork by Veterans, Active Military, and Their Family
January 27 – March 20, 2020
BPCC wants to showcase Veteran/Active Military & Family Art that illustrates the military experience (both positive and negative aspects) including PTSD related art, in hopes of promoting the idea of art as a creative outlet. Our secondary goal is to expose students, faculty, and staff to the Military Experience and its Aftermath.
Reception: February 19, from 5 – 7 p.m.
A panel discussion about the military experience, PTSD, and art therapy begins at 5:30pm.
Panelists include: Dr. Thomas (a registered art therapist in Shreveport who has worked with Vets in workshops), Gary Humphries (a Veteran and artist who took workshops with Dr. Thomas in 2017), Susan Stakes (Program Manager of Military Services at BPCC), and Alesia G. Davis (Local Recovery Coordinator at Overton Brooks VA Medical Center).
