Student Art Exhibit is April 18-25
For 25 years, LBW Community College’s annual Student Art Exhibition has recognized excellence in the visual arts, and the 2013 event opens Thursday, April 18, with a public reception.
“This year, the LBWCC Art Gallery will feature several individual pieces in categories such as drawings in black and white, drawings in color, two-dimensional design, three-dimensional design, and graphic design,” said Misti Purvis, art instructor.
“Students in three-dimensional design have created one-of-a-kind workable lamps with a variety of materials, including ping pong balls, glass jars, and cardboard lampshades. They are all a ‘must-see to believe’ in the creativity of students.”
Two-dimensional design students created reproductions of Van Gogh’s paintings in Photoshop and added themselves into the painting, among other whimsical posters, she said.
“The exhibit represents the diverse materials and styles used in drawing and were all executed by our students. This year’s “Best of Show,” the top award, will be revealed during the reception.”
The reception is free and open to the public, 4-6 p.m., April 18, 2013, in the LBWCC Art Gallery located in the William H. McWhorter Learning Resource Center in Andalusia. The exhibit will be on display through April 25, during gallery hours of 8 a.m.-3:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and 8 a.m.-noon on Friday.
“We welcome the public, students, parents, and friends to attend the reception and to view the works this year.”
