SCC drawing and painting students work on display at East End Gallery through Oct. 31

A new exhibit by students in the Somerset Community College drawing and painting classes is currently on display in the East End Gallery in Stoner Hall on the SCC Somerset Campus North.

According to SCC Art Assistant Professor Darlene Libbey, The pieces on exhibit in SCCs East End Gallery, explore the relationship between art and place, local and global.

The work represents the relationship as seen through the study of SCC drawing and painting students, who are both first and second year students in art.

Although some students have only been drawing a short time, they are expressing themselves vividly through mark making with paint and charcoal, Libbey said.

The current exhibit will be on display through October 31st.

A reception for the artists will be held on Thursday, Oct. 22, during SCCs Fourth Annual International Festival.

Students exhibiting work in the show include: Jared Floyd, Pulaski Count; Travis Hall, Pulaski County; Jennifer Linnins, Pulaski County; Jacob Parlmely, Wayne County; Justin Perkins, Pulaski County; Patricia Bock, Pulaski County; Tyler Fish, Lincoln County; Sam Isaacs, Pulaski County; Lisa Hamley, Pulaski County; Vonna Daniel, Pulaski County; and Rebecca White, Wayne County.
