More than 60 works by nearly 40 student artists are on view at the annual Juried Art Student Exhibit in the North Santiam Hall Galleries at Linn-Benton Community College, 6500 SW Pacific Blvd.
A reception and awards ceremony is scheduled for Wednesday May 9 from noon to 1 p.m. in the NSH second floor atrium, when over $2,000 in cash prizes from donors and gift certificates from area merchants will be announced.
Jurors for the show were artists and educators Diane Tarter of Adair and Becca McCannell of Salem. Both are professors of art at Western Oregon University in Monmouth.
The exhibit was open to students who have taken art classes at the college during the 2011-12 academic year. The media on exhibit include paintings in oil, watercolor and acrylic; drawings in pencil, ink, charcoal and pastel; photography; ceramics and mixed-media sculpture.
The exhibit runs through June 8. The North Santiam Hall Galleries are open weekdays from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.
