New SCC Instructor to Exhibit in Hastings Gallery

February ExhibitHeea Crownfield, a new instructor at Sandhills Community College, will exhibit works during the month of February in Hastings Gallery in the Boyd Library.

Crownfield is a sculptor and mixed-media artist whose work involves an ongoing engagement with processes and nontraditional materials exploring layering, accumulation, and the sensuous as metaphors of embodiment.

Having exhibited throughout the southeast, including at the Weatherspoon Art Museum and the Greenhill Center for North Carolina Art in Greensboro, along with at the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art (SECCA) in Winston-Salem, Crownfield earned a Master of Fine Arts from Clemson University. Her work has been recognized by the International Sculpture Center and included in Sculpture Magazine.
