What’s new at Collins Art Gallery

The GRCC annual student art exhibit in the Paul Collins Art Gallery is displaying top-quality work from talented students. The show is set to run from March 19 to April 13 on the fourth floor of GRCC Main Building.

“We have 89 pieces selected out of more than 500 entries,” said gallery curator Filippo Tagliati. He went on to explain that the works were selected by faculty voting on all the entries.

Among the art pieces selected were photographs, drawings, paintings, sculptures, and jewelry. Two chairs sit near the entry of the gallery. Nicolette Looks created a chair, more-over a throne, made out of burlap strips and tree branches that seem to be waiting for elfin royalty. On the other end of the spectrum, Ken Humberstone crafted a sleek chair of steel and wood, the metal curling like smoke around the modern lines of the wooden seat.

Awards for some of the 89 works will be given at a ceremony next week.
