Annual Exhibit Showcases Student Artistry

March 30, 2018 — At NMH, artists are everywhere. Or so it seems judging from the depth and breadth of work selected for the annual student art exhibit. The show opens Friday, March 30, with a reception at 6:30 pm that day in the Gallery at the Rhodes Arts Center.

Among the 40-plus works on display by 35 students are drawings in graphite, charcoal, pen and ink, and pastel; collages, oil paintings, watercolors, prints, and photographs. Three-dimensional art is represented with assemblages, ceramics, and sculptures in clearstone and wire.

And what imaginative works students have created in these varied media. A minutely detailed mandala rendered in flame colors … shadow boxes that give new meanings to antique bric-a-brac … An artist astride a tiger painted in a style reminiscent of Henri Rousseau … a monkey smoking a pipe in an opulent room ...a elegant vessel constructed of what appears to be toilet-paper rolls … portraits in wire, charcoal, photography, and pastels. 

All this work, created this academic year by NMH students, gets professional presentation in the campus gallery, which usually exhibits works by regionally and nationally known artists.

The student art show runs through April 29. 

The Gallery at the RAC is open Monday to Friday, 10 am–7 pm, and weekends, 1–5 pm.

Here's a sample of what students have created this year.
