Walk through the Forum and Studio galleries this week, and treat your eyes to professional-quality works from Brookhaven College School of the Arts students. The annual Juried Art Student Exhibition is going on now through May 11.
“Our students commonly work at a level exceeding that of the four-year institutions to which they transfer to complete their baccalaureate degree,” said David Newman, School of the Arts gallery coordinator. “That is one reason so many of our art majors transfer to prestigious programs across the country.”
The exhibition showcases the top student artwork from 529 entries, as selected by juror Robert Milnes, dean of the College of Visual Art and Design at the University of North Texas and president of the National Association of Schools of Art and Design.
The art is a culmination of the year’s work in studio art classes and are representative of the fine arts curriculum: art metals, ceramics, design, digital media, drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, and sculpture classes.
The Juror’s Award and Purchase Award recipients were announced May 4 during the awards reception.
Six students were chosen as Juror's Award recipients, each earning a cash prize.
Eleven students received Purchase Awards, as chosen by BCSA faculty and staff. These works will be added to the Brookhaven College Permanent Collection and displayed around the college.
