“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.
NPC’s 2022 Student Art Show showcases a selection of unique works created and submitted by NPC students. The exhibition is currently on display at NPC’s Talon Gallery at the Show Low, White Mountain Campus, through May 6, 2022.
The NPC Student Art Show recognizes student accomplishments in the visual arts and honors their exceptional artistic achievement. All NPC students (not only art students) are encouraged to participate. A panel comprised of NPC’s art faculty reviews the pieces and selects those that will appear in the show. Not all submitted works are exhibited. “Acceptance to a show that has been juried is a true 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 an art career,” Gluszek explains. “The jury puts much consideration into the selection process. Successful composition, craftsmanship, mastery of the medium, and originality are evaluated. Students should be aware that the jury process is intended to encourage artistic growth, and I would like to congratulate all our participants personally.”
This year’s selections display just that. Thirty-eight original works of art are featured in the show. “The breadth of creative effort displayed by our students is amazing,” notes Gluszek.
“We want you to take part in the jury process. We are encouraging the public to cast votes for the ‘People’s Choice Award’ – which is selected by the community,” explains Gluszek. Submit your vote by May 6 by simply dropping by the Talon Gallery, selecting your favorite piece, and placing your vote in the people’s choice award box.
Award winners will be announced at the Talon Gallery during a closing reception on Friday, May 6, 2022, from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. “It’s a fun way to participate in the show and express your appreciation of the artwork and our student artists.” The recipient of the “People’s Choice” award and winning entries will be unveiled during the awards reception.
The Talon Gallery is open to the public Monday through Thursday, 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., and Fridays, from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Contact Gallery Director and NPC Art Faculty Magda Gluszek for additional information about this exhibit at 532-6176 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
