Published on: March 09, 2010

HOUSTON (March 9, 2010) – Visual Communication students at Lone Star College-Kingwood will have a chance to showcase their work at the annual Visual Communication Student Show March 30-April 16. A free opening reception will take place at the college’s Fine Arts Gallery located in the Student Fine Arts Building at 12:30 pm on March 30.

The Visual Communication Student Show will feature 31 submitted works from approximately 22 students. Entrants who have taken classes within the last year were eligible to participate in this year’s show.

“The student show began in 2005 with the purpose of showcasing the work of Visual Communication students to the college and local community. In the past, faculty selected the top student work to be showcased. This year’s show is the first juried show, which means that the students select what they feel is their best work. This change has generated a lot of excitement and interest in the students.”

Interested parties who attend the annual Visual Communication Student Show will be able to view several works in many different categories such as print, independent (work done professionally or outside of the classroom) multimedia/animation and 3-D. Judges for the event are Visual Communication student alumni, Vicente Velasquez, Clayton Murphy, Cyndie Schmidt and Amy Callahan. Hilary Miller, lead faculty of Computer Information Technology, will also be a judge.  

During the opening reception, the first, second, third and best of show winners will be announced.  The Best of Show winner will receive a free class in the Visual Communication Program. For more information on the student show, contact Donna Monteferante Johnson at 281.312.1426.
