The 13th Annual Student Art Exhibition at Lewis and Clark Community College premiered April 7 at 5 p.m. in Gallery A Hatheway building.
This exhibit featured over 110 pieces of art that ranged from ceramics, printmaking, 3D drawings, film photography, and digital photography just to mention a few different medium types.
L&C Graphic Design student Shelby Clayton, who had two art pieces in the show, said, “The art show went great, and it had a huge turnout. The pieces presented in the show were a definite reflection of how much effort and support our instructors give us students to bring out our best potential. It was a wonderful experience, as always. Even though I’m graduating soon, I will definitely keep coming back to see new student work.”
Winners were announced during the opening. First prize, a $250 purchase, went to Kevin (Matt) Greene for “Garden of the Gods,” a black and white digital photograph. Second prize, a $125 cash award, went to Taylor Cranmer for “Ponder,” a mixed media piece. Third prize, a $75 cash award, went to Marion Black “The Heart of Death,” a chromogenic print.
Best in Show Winner Greene said, “I was honored to have two photos chosen in the first place and probably wouldn’t have even entered if not for the encouragement of my classmates and teacher. After seeing all the awesome artwork there, I never thought I’d place. I was shocked and speechless when he called my name for Best in Show. What an awesome experience and I am extremely grateful for the opportunity.”
Honorable Mention recipients received a $50 Dick Blick gift certificate. Those went to Dustin Kent for “1955 Ford Thunderbird,” an Illustration (Illustrator); Teresa Frisch “Not So Self Portrait,” a stoneware sculpture; and Emily Linn for “Ceramic and Glass,” a charcoal piece.
The exhibit was free and open to the public but closed April 21. For more information on the Student Art Show, contact L&C Art Coordinator Chris Brennan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
