Longtime Art Student Presents Retrospective of Works at FRCC Gallery in Westminster

Bill Stockton, an independent-study art student at Front Range Community College, will have an exhibition of his works in March at the Visual and Performing Arts Gallery at the Westminster Campus.

The artist reception will be from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, March 6.

Stockton began studying art at Montgomery Community College in Maryland in 1981. He earned an Associate of Arts degree in Studio Art there. He also has bachelor and doctoral degrees and is a graduate of the U.S. Army War College.

Stockton has been a student at FRCC since 1998, when he retired from government service overseas. His usual medium is oil paints, although he also paints in watercolor and acrylic.

Truly a Renaissance man, Stockton also studies multimedia at FRCC and is converting photographs for printed books. He also is transcribing Bela Bartok’s piano work “Mikroksomos” for the classical guitar, which he studies under Kevin Garry, music faculty at FRCC.

The exhibit runs through March 20. The gallery is Room C1660 at the campus, 3645 W. 112th Ave., Westminster.

Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays. Admission is free. The campus is an RTD bus stop, and free parking also is available.
