LSC-Kingwood invites community to spring art show

Published on: April 15, 2011

Lone Star College-Kingwood art students will display their projects at the college’s annual Spring Student Art Show April 25-May 4 in the Fine Arts Gallery.

The juried show will feature the works of approximately 70 students in three categories: photography, 2-D (Design I, Design III and Drawing) and 3-D (ceramics). This show is also a part of the studio art class curriculum.

“The spring art show showcases the best of the best works that were produced during the spring semester at LSC-Kingwood. The submitted works will be judged by an invited juror, usually an art faculty from Houston,” said Mari Omori, LSC-Kingwood art professor. “This show highlights the students’ achievement in the form of visual art. Community members are invited to the show to be inspired by the craftsmanship, concepts, creativeness and the students’ efforts of being exhibited.”

The show is juried by artist and educator Ken Mazzu, whose work is exhibited throughout the region as well as in Houston at the Deborah Colton, McMurtrey and Poissant galleries. Recently his large-scale oils and gouache on paper were featured at the Williams Tower Gallery in Houston and his “Artists in Academics” in Beeville.  Mazzu is an instructor at Glassell School of Art in Houston.

The reception is on April 28 and first, second, third and honorable mention awards will be given in each category in addition to one best of show award. The reception will be from 12:30-1:30 p.m. in the college’s gallery.

“The purpose of the Student Art Show is to recognize the work that our students have completed in their art classes,” said Cory Cryer, LSC-Kingwood art professor. “This show offers the opportunity for our on and off campus communities to see the talent and creativity of our students.”
