The Parkland College Art and Design Student Juried Exhibition will be on display April 8 through May 4 in the Parkland Art Gallery.
This yearly exhibition of Parkland College student work comprises photography, painting, drawing, metals, sculpture, three-dimensional design, two-dimensional design, color theory and ceramics. Students taking art classes in the current academic year (beginning with summer 2012) are eligible to participate. Art and Design faculty select approximately 200 works for the exhibit from among more than 400 entries.
During the exhibit’s opening reception and awards ceremony, which takes place from 6 to 8 p.m. in the gallery lounge on April 11, Jordan Kay and the Parkland Guitar Ensemble will provide music. An awards ceremony at 7 p.m. will recognize students whose artwork shows remarkable distinction. Merit Awards, Purchase Awards, The Parkland President Award, The David M. and Shirley A. Jones Student Art Award, The Metals Award for Jewelry/Metalsmith, The Fine and Applied Arts Chair Award, the Parkland Art and Design Faculty Award, the Blair Kling Memorial Award and an Art Coop supplies award are among the gifts made possible by the generosity of private individuals who have donated funds.
Scholarships are also announced during the exhibit. This year, they include The Don Lake Art Scholarship, the Underwood-Alger Scholarship, and the Robert Ralph Ford Memorial Art Scholarship. Also announced will be the prestigious Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts scholarship. Merit awardees, scholarship recipients, and certificate winners retain possession of their work. Purchase awards become part of the Parkland College Permanent Collection.
All events in the handicapped-accessible gallery are free and open to the public. Regular gallery hours are Monday–Thursday, 10 a.m.–7 p.m., Friday, 10 a.m.–3p.m., and Saturday, noon–2 p.m.
