Kellogg Community College is seeking entries from student artists who would like to see their work displayed as part of the college’s annual Student Art Show.
All current academic year KCC students are eligible to submit up to five entries of works produced between May 2012 and April 2013 for display in the show, and entries must be submitted at the office of the Davidson Center between 8 a.m. Monday, April 8, and 5 p.m. Wednesday, April 10.
The annual student exhibition showcases the works of current visual arts students and includes 10 media categories including ceramics, drawing, painting, 2D mixed media, sculpture and 3D mixed media, black and white photography, digital media, printmaking/alternative photography print processes, graphic design and animation/video.
Works exhibited will be judged by local artist and retired art instructor Craig Bishop and awards totaling $1,000 will be given to winners announced during an Awards Reception from 1 to 3 p.m. April 21 at the Davidson Center Auditorium. Honors in each category will include Best of Media and Honorable Mention awards in addition to a single Best of Show award and a single Instructor Recognition Award, as well as several Art League awards and door prizes.
Bishop said when judging works of art he needs to feel “a sense of struggle both with the medium and the concept.”
“I am looking for work where the idea is not always ‘in your face,’ but that has a little mystery,” Bishop said. “I am looking for work that questions my sense of what I thought I knew.”
The art will be displayed in the Eleanor R. & Robert A. DeVries Gallery in the college’s Davidson Visual and Performing Arts Center, 450 North Ave., Battle Creek, from Monday, April 15, through Wednesday, May 1. The exhibit will be free and open to the public for viewing during gallery hours, which are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
