Deptford Twp. – Aspiring fine artists and graphic designers will showcase their work for the very first time during Gloucester County College’s Annual Student Art Exhibit opening reception Thursday, Dec. 6 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
For many students, the opportunity is exciting—blending education and career with passion and professionalism. All artwork on display incorporates a wide variety of media, including paintings, drawings, photography, sculpture, videos, pottery and digital art.
GCC Gallery Director and Associate Professor Eoin Kinnarney said students often gain a new perspective on the arts beyond the collegiate realm, as well as their own abilities, by interacting with the community.
“I’m curious to see if people like my work,” said Natale Morina, of Paulsboro, a Computer Graphic Arts student. “I would love to hear what people think as they discuss it. Anything you see in real life you can capture and make it into something more.”
“It will be interesting to see what exactly catches people’s eye and whether or not anyone would want to buy my work,” said Jennifer Wight, of Washington Township, a pre-nursing candidate. “It’s a great stepping stone.”
The exhibit runs until Friday, Jan. 18 in the Dr. Ross Beitzel Art Gallery, located in the College Center mezzanine. It is open Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Saturday 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. For more information, call 856-415-2122 or 856-415-2229.
Gloucester County College’s 250-acre campus is located on Tanyard Road off exit 56 of Route 55.
