The Annual Student Art Exhibition has been a vital part of the Skyline College Creative Arts program, and an important aspect of an art student’s educational experience. It provides students the opportunity to prepare and present their artwork in a professional setting, which serves as a platform for public exposure – itself a learning experience different from that gained in the classroom – and facilitates community-building by bringing together students, their families, faculty and staff, and the local community.
On April 19, the reception and first-ever award ceremony for the 18th Annual Juried Student Art Exhibition was held at the Skyline College art gallery against a lively backdrop of music, oven-fresh pizza, desserts, and beverages. With over 200 in attendance, Dean Donna Bestock along with art professors Arthur Takayama, Tiffany Schmierer, Bridget Fischer, and Paul Bridenbaugh presented the awards to this year’s winners. Featuring a selection of over 100 artworks in all media, it was a great place for students, their families, and faculty members to mingle and learn more about each other.
The Skyline College art department and art gallery extends their congratulations to all of the students who participated in this year’s exhibition!
