The Art Galleries at TCU presents Sequel ¬¬– a collaborative exhibition featuring former Associate Professor of Art Susan Harrington alongside four of her top-performing former graduate students.

Sequel will be on view at Moudy Gallery from Sept. 27 through Oct. 25, 2018, with an opening reception from 5-7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 27.

The special exhibition celebrates Harrington’s retirement from TCU, where she has taught drawing and painting since 1988.

Instead of a solo exhibition of her work, Harrington chose to invite students she helped foster into professional artists and creatives, a news release about the exhibition said.

Sequel features works Harrington, along with works by former graduate students – Shafaq Ahmad, Stephen Battle, Devon Nowlin and Harmony Padgett. Harrington also invited TCU alumna and art historian Laurie Taylor to contribute an essay for the exhibition publication.

Harrington was born in Berkeley, Calif., and has lived on the east coast, in the Midwest and for the last 30 years in Fort Worth. She is an experienced and highly-regarded artist who has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions throughout the United States and Germany.

Ahmad graduated with a master of fine arts degree from TCU in 2011. Presently, she works as a multimedia artist. In 2017, Ahmad received the Champion of Global Arts award from Texas Gov. Greg Abbott.

Battle was offered a full scholarship to TCU and received his master of fine arts in painting in May 2006. He was an instructor of design and color at TCU for several years and is currently a member of the visual arts faculty at Tarrant County College, where he teaches drawing, painting, design and art appreciation.

Nowlin is a Fort Worth native who obtained a master of fine arts from TCU in 2011. Her public works include Trailing the Trinity, commissioned by Fort Worth Public Art for the Clearfork Main Street Bridge and the Look Book Fort Worth photographic series for the Westbend development on University Drive.

Padgett received her master of fine arts in painting at TCU in 2010. Her work is held in numerous private collections, including the UT Southwestern Moncrief Cancer Center, Art Museum of South Texas, and Philadelphia’s Drexel University, among others.
