On October’s First Thursday, the Froelick Gallery opens At Last, an exhibition of PNCA faculty member Tom Prochaska’s black and white oil paintings. The exhibition marks not only Prochaska’s 40 year career as an artist but also comes at the conclusion of his 23 years as a faculty member at the College. The Gallery’s website calls the body of work “the result of a visual search in which the artist explores the basic interaction between medium and surface, applying strong foundational elements of value and form in what is firstly an exercise in masterful composition and expressive markmaking. Prochaska considers the works in At Last to be the pinnacle of his more than 40 career as an artist; the truest expression of the art he aspires to create.”
PNCA faculty member Tom Prochaska joined the College’s Printmaking Department in 1988 and is retiring this year—along with Printmaking Department Chair Christy Wyckoff who has taught at PNCA since 1978.
