Grand Rapids Community College is presenting student work in the Paul Collins Gallery today. The student art club has made it a tradition of creating a show to present the student’s artwork at the end of every semester.
“This not only literally shows us advancing upward, but also shows the level of work that can be accomplished by the students outside of their scholarly lives,” said Art Club President Jenn Coles.
There will be 30 student artists of varying artistic mediums featured in tonight’s show, including poetry reading and an acoustic performance to accompany the artwork in the gallery.
“The artwork has many different styles of two-dimensional and three dimensional media,” Coles said. “It is expressive, personal work that the students are proud to show to the faculty as well as friends and family.”
Many of the works on display relate to portraits and human form. Other artworks being featured are drawings, paintings, etchings, digital art, sculptures, pottery, costume, photography, music and poetry.
The show will start at 5 p.m. and will go until 9 p.m. tonight in the Collins Gallery, located on the fourth floor of the Main Building. There will be snacks and refreshments provided.
