All art forms will come to life in this year’s Annual Student Exhibition in the Atkinson Gallery at City College.

A reception will be held at 5 p.m Friday, April 25, where students and viewers can wonder through the gallery and view juried student work.

Elyse Gonzalez, curator of exhibitions at the Art, Design and Architecture Museum at UCSB will be this year’s selected juror. On Saturday, April 19, Gonzalez will attend City College to jury the student’s work before the opening night.

Sculpture, fine art, printmaking and time-based media are just a sample of what will be represented at this year’s show.

When asked what she is looking forward to about this annual exhibit, City College’s Atkinson Gallery intern, Lia DeWit said, “It’s an exhibition that shows the amazing talent of the students here at City College.”

With the large amount of different art classes offered on campus, the annual exhibition allows all art students to participate in one cohesive show. Whether a beginner or an advanced artist, the show encourages them all to submit work. Anyone who has taken a class within the art department in the last year is able to participate.

The pieces entered in this show have to be submitted framed and ready to exhibit. Each student entering in work is allowed to have up to three pieces in the exhibition.

An award ceremony will be held at the end of the night for the students to get their recognition.

The Annual Student Exhibition starts on April 25 and is open to students and the public until May 16.
