The Northland Pioneer College Student Art Show showcases student accomplishments in the visual arts and honors exceptional achievement.
All NPC students are encouraged to participate. The NPC Student Art Show is a juried exhibition. A panel of jurors met to review all of the submitted artworks and selected the pieces that appear in the show. This year the jury members were:

Peterson Yazzie, Faculty in Art

Magda Gluszek, Faculty in Art

Ryan Rademacher, Faculty in English

Acceptance to a show that has been juried is an honor. It is a distinction that can be listed on a resume and is the type of professional recognition that is essential to any student pursuing a career in art. The jury put much consideration into the selection process. Successful composition, craftsmanship, mastery of medium and originality are all evaluated.

Congratulations to all participants!
