Spring 2015 Juried Student Exhibition

April 10 - May 16, 2015
Details: Yavapai College Prescott Art Gallery is proud to present the Spring 2015 Juried Student Art Show. It is always a great show and a great opportunity to meet and support our Student Artists as well as their instructors. Juried selections include Ceramics, Drawing, Painting, Printmaking, Sculpture, Jewelry, Watercolor, Photography, Woodworking and Digital Representations.
The juror for this semester’s exhibit is Roger Asay from the collaborative team of Roger Asay and Rebecca Davis. These two local Prescott artists have been working together since 1983, they create works of art utilizing wood and stone which helps the viewer become part of the natural world through witnessing the raw materials. We are privileged and excited to have Roger as our juror.
The Student Show is a distinct opportunity for Students to go through the process of their work being juried as well as photographing their work and digitally submitting it. The college provides photographic and lighting help as well as help with the online submission. It is an educational experience all around. This also is presents a great opportunity to purchase artwork from local artists.
