Volunteer State Community College will be hosting its annual Student Art Show on April 26, at 4 p.m.
The opening reception is to be held on the first floor of the Steinhauer Rohan-Black Humanities Building, in the gallery.
The annual art show is an opportunity for students to submit their work in a more professional manner. All work is encouraged to be submitted.
The art show offers a way for students to network with other colleges, community members, college faculty, and students who may be interested in artwork. As well as opening the door for job opportunities, commission work, or community art opportunities.
Abigail Felber, Associate Professor of Art, MFA Printmaking, says, “First, students mat their work and present it more formally and professionally. Then, a juror comes to jury the work. Jurors typically look at the formal qualities of the work, craftsmanship, and concept development.”
Work such as printmaking, painting, sculptures and ceramics, and even stop motion have already been submitted to the show.
“It is common that artists don’t get into every show they apply to, so in this way it is a real-world learning experience that can also help to push students forward in continuing to create, as well as to develop persistence and confidence.” Felber says.
Some of the artwork in the show is also for sale. Please email any one of the art faculty or the Humanities Division Office to purchase such art.
