The Mt. San Jacinto College Art Gallery will close its exhibition year with the “Annual Student Show.” This exhibit is designed to display work created by students who have been enrolled in art production courses during the 2011/2012 academic year. Participants in this show are selected by instructors from the Menifee and San Jacinto campuses and are working in media such as drawing, painting, sculpture, bronze work, ceramics, photography, digital illustration, and graphic design.
“The Annual Student Show” aims to showcase the work of those who are developing their skills at the community college level. This exhibition is a varied and vibrant look at the work of today’s student artists, the current generation who will be developing cutting- edge artistic practices in the years to come.
This show promises to be both stylistically and conceptually diverse, exemplifying the wide range of styles, media, and modes of representation and expression that are common to the contemporary art scene. This exhibit is a fascinating opportunity for community members to see the merits of educational development and the ways in which MSJC students are contributing to an evolving style of Southern Californian art.
It is important for emerging artists to develop their portfolios and take advantage of opportunities to display their work in public settings. In this way, the MSJC Art Gallery provides a site from which student artists can start their public careers and gain valuable experience that will serve as a basis for future career development.
“The Annual Student Show” will run from April 28 through May 17, 2012. The opening reception will be held on Saturday, April 28 from 3 to 5pm. The reception will feature live music and refreshments will be provided. The exhibit and opening reception are both free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Monday – Thursday, 10am – 4pm.
