Exhibit to feature art across the spectrum
The art gallery at Palm Beach State College’s Lake Worth campus will host an exhibition showcasing student artwork beginning May 3.
An opening reception will take place from 5 to 7 p.m. May 5, and the works will be on display until June 2. There will be awards granted to select pieces within the show, and the winners will be announced during the reception. Both the reception and the exhibit are free and open to the public.
The show, titled Art Across the Spectrum, is the first exhibition hosted by the art gallery on the Lake Worth campus that will be entirely designed, curated and executed by its visual art and design students. The purpose of the show is to present a variety of two and three dimensional works that represent a “spectrum” of color, media, approaches, subject matter and concepts to highlight the amazing array of artistic explorations by the students.
This exhibition empowers the students with the ability to express their ideas and concerns about what is relevant within the world of art. Additionally, the students selected for the exhibit will have a chance for their work to be received by a greater audience outside the classroom. The goal is to provide all the art and design students an arena in which to cultivate professional attitudes.
The pieces presented in the show will be comprised of work that students are executing in their classes, under the guidance of instructors, but will also include independent projects that students have embarked upon while exercising their personal visions outside the classroom.
“I am excited to have our students involved in the planning and curating of this exhibit,” said Victoria Martin, chair of the Visual Art and Graphic Design departments. “Their choice of ‘Art Across the Spectrum’ as an inclusive vision of artworks selected through their eyes and perspective is a refreshing display of the work of our talented art and design students. We are thrilled to be able to share this exhibit with fellow students, faculty, staff, friends and family.”
Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. The Gallery at Lake Worth campus is located on the first floor of the Humanities building. For more information, call the gallery at 561-868-3270 or 561-868-3909 or visit www.palmbeachstate.edu/ArtGalleryLW
