“The artistic, expressive and creative passion of students enrolled at Northland Pioneer College (NPC), who have entered their work in our spring juried art show is undeniable,” states NPC Talon Gallery Director, Magda Gluszek.
In a virtual display of that talent, NPC’s 2021 Student Art Show showcases a selection of unique works from NPC students, available for public viewing now through May 31st at the Talon Gallery’s webpage www.npc.edu/talongallery.
The NPC Student Art Show is juried by NPC art faculty and recognizes student accomplishments in the visual arts and honors their exceptional achievement. All NPC students (not only art students), are encouraged to participate. A panel of jurors reviews all of the submitted artworks and select the pieces that will appear in the show. Not all submitted works are exhibited. “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,” Gluszek explains. “The jury puts much consideration into the selection process. Successful composition, craftsmanship, mastery of medium, and originality are all evaluated. Students should be aware that the jury process is intended to encourage artistic growth.”
This year’s selections display just that. Fifty-six original works of art are featured in the show. “The growth and breadth of creative effort displayed by our students is amazing,” notes Gluszek.
Votes are being gathered now for the “People’s Choice Award” – which will be selected by the community. Submit your vote by May 12. “It’s a fun way to participate in the show and express your pleasure with the artwork and complement our student artists.” The pubic is encouraged to participate. To vote on your favorite, E-mail the name of the artist and title of the artwork to firstname.lastname@example.org. (One vote per person please.) Release of the “People’s Choice” winner and other top performers in this year’s show is forthcoming.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the physical art gallery at the Show Low campus remains closed to the general public.
