21st Annual Student Art Exhibition on Display Through May 25

Example of artwork on displayThe College of the Canyons Art Gallery will present the 21st Annual Student Art Exhibition highlighting a diverse range of work created by the college’s talented student-artists.

The 21st Annual COC Student Art Exhibition will run Tuesday, April 18 to Thursday, May 25. An artist’s reception is scheduled noon to 4 p.m. on April 18. 

The works on display include sculpture, photography, printmaking, painting, graphic design, illustration, film, and animation. 

“The Student Art Exhibition gives our talented art students the opportunity to share their work with the community,” Art Gallery Director Larry Hurst said. “This year’s exhibition is especially dynamic and inspiring.”

The annual showcase exhibition also acts as an educational and professional experience for students. Works are submitted for review and a guest juror selected from the greater Los Angeles arts community traditionally curates the Student Art Exhibition. 

Some works then become part of a permanent visual art collection, spanning all disciplines, which is displayed at the college’s Valencia and Canyon Country campuses.

This year’s juror is Sue Tuemmler. Tuemmler received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Rhode Island School of Design and currently works from her studio in downtown Los Angeles. 

A former arts educator, her work has been shown in the Cincinnati Art Museum, Barnsdall Art Center, Pasadena Art Center College of Design, Gallery 825, and the COC Art Gallery. 

The  Art Gallery is open 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Thursdays. Those unable to visit the gallery during normal hours are welcome to contact the gallery to schedule a viewing appointment. All gallery exhibitions and related events are free and open to the public.
