SCC Hosts Student Art Exhibit

student art exhibitSomerset Community College students enrolled in studio arts have displayed their work in the SCC East End Gallery, located on the Somerset campus in the Stoner Building, 800 Monticello Street. The free exhibit, entitled Its Up to You, is a mixture of drawings and paintings created by students over the course of the semester. The exhibit will run through the month of December and is open to the public. A reception is scheduled for December 1 from 5 to 7 p.m. to celebrate the work of the students. The reception is free and open to all.

Those students exhibiting work include: Ashley Ridner, Gene Johnson, Emily Keller, Patricia Bock, Critley King, Ryan Walters, Miranda Elliot and Brandon Church, all from Pulaski County; Donna Warren, Clay County; Jessica Perkins and Justin Perkins, Wayne County; and Matthew Jones, McCreary County.

Twenty-three works are featured in the exhibit.

The exhibit, Its Up to You, was named by the emerging artists as both a charge and a choice, said Darlene Libbey, associate professor of Art at SCC. I am pleased to see the work from students on display in the East End Gallery and hope the public will come out to see what talented students we have. As Thomas Lawson once stated, It all boils down to a question of faithyoung artists concerned with pictures and picture-making. That is what I hope is portrayed in this exhibit.

Somerset Community College is a comprehensive two-year institution of higher education. SCC has campuses in Somerset and London, and centers in Clinton, McCreary, Casey, and Russell counties. For admission and program information, visit the website at somerset.kctcs.edu.
