Blue Ridge Community College will showcase a diverse and dynamic assortment of student artwork this May 3 – 13, 2024, through the 13th Annual Student Art Show. An opening reception takes place May 3. The popular free annual exhibition will feature standout pieces from the Fall 2023 and Spring 2024 semesters across a variety of mediums and disciplines.

“This year’s art show will highlight an impressive range of student achievements in painting, drawing, 3D design, 2D design, photography, figure drawing, and digital design,” explained Aaron Bernard, art instructor in Blue Ridge’s Dept. of Art. “Not only will the exhibition include coursework, but it will also feature exceptional projects completed outside of class, offering a full spectrum of student creativity and expertise.”

The May 3 opening reception will take place from 5:30 – 7 p.m. in the gym (room 131) of the Henderson Building of the College’s Henderson County Campus. The exhibition will then remain open to the public on weekdays through May 13 during the College’s operating hours. A map of the campus is available on the Blue Ridge website.

A broad collection of works will reflect the comprehensive education students receive at Blue Ridge in addition to their personal growth and artistic exploration. Visitors can expect to see a rich array of media, including graphite and charcoal drawings, digital prints, woodwork, ceramics, oil paintings and more.

“This event is a wonderful opportunity for community members, art lovers, and prospective students to engage with the artists and experience the vibrant cultural environment fostered at Blue Ridge Community College,” added Bernard. “We invite everyone to join us in celebrating the achievements and artistic expression of our students.”
