Published on: May 06, 2013Lone Star College-Montgomery’s art department ends their spring art exhibit season with the Juried Student Art Exhibit, on display May 6-10 in the college’s Mary Matteson-Parrish Art Gallery, located in the Performing Arts Center (Building D). The community is invited to the opening reception on Monday, May 6, at noon, in the same location, where refreshments will be served.
This exhibit is an annual end-of-the-year showing of the students’ artwork. An invited juror has selected the pieces for the show, as well as pieces for additional awards, including “Best in Show,” “Best 2-D,” “Best 3-D,” and honorable mentions.
“This exhibit is a great teaching tool, because the students learn how to enter shows and learn that they will not always be selected,” said Robby Wood, art professor at LSC-Montgomery. “It’s a valuable lesson for any of the visual and performing arts, as well.”
Guest can expect to see all varieties of art, including drawings and designs, metal artwork, ceramics, and photography. If guest would like to purchase any pieces, they will need to contact the artist themselves.
“One result of the exhibit is that other students on campus have a place to go during finals week to see the end product of the visual art students,” said Wood. “They can relax in the gallery as they prepare for or recover from finals.”
The Mary Matteson-Parrish Art Gallery is a teaching gallery at LSC-Montgomery, and the presentations and artwork provided are free to the community. Gallery hours are Monday-Friday, from 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
