On behalf of the Department of Art, I am pleased to welcome these fine artist-teachers to Moravian College. They bring a wealth of talent and knowledge to enrich our students. This display showcases their personal work, a mix of styles, subject matter, and media. We are fortunate to have them on our staff and to have this opportunity to present examples of their artistic endeavors.

William Hudders is teaching Two-Dimensional Design, Fundamentals of Drawing and Painting, and Independent Study. He received the M.F.A. from the University of Pennsylvania and the B.F.A. from Rhode Island School of Design. He states: "My work is primarily derived from the images and sensations one sees in everyday life . . . I was surprised to find that the depiction of everyday reality was consistently challenging and unpredictable."
Barbara Kozero, teaching Painting I, received the M.F.A. from the University of Wisconsin at Madison and the B.F.A. from Tyler School of Art, Temple University. Her whimsical mixed media pieces demonstrate her belief that "my influences have also valued humor as an important aspect of art . . I delight in rich colors, textures, and detail. When I work, I look for the unexpected and hope for the spontaneous."
Dana Van Horn is also teaching Painting I. His background includes the M.F.A. from Yale University and the B.F.A. from San Diego State University. Displayed are acrylic and watercolor figurative works. He says of his work, "I paint people because they are to me the most important and compelling subject matter."
Douglas Zucco, teaching Drawing II, received the M.F.A. from the University of Georgia and the B.F.A. from Kutztown University. He has also offered several paper-making workshops at Moravian College, and his mixed-media pieces incorporate hand-made paper as well as other techniques. He states: "My work is puzzle-like and compartmentalized . . . The best part of creating these works is the mystery of what's coming next."
