Student Art Work On Display At North Hennepin Community College
The annual North Hennepin Community College student art show is on right now for people to stop by the gallery and take in student work in a variety of media, including paintings, photos, videos, and 2-D and 3-D sculptures.
“Students knock it out of the park every year, “ said faculty member Jason Schoch. “There’s tremendous work that’s made on campus each semester, and summers as well. Students are tremendously excited about having this particular venue to be able to get a bigger audience for their work.”
The Joseph Gazzoulo Art Gallery is open six days a week, and the work is on display through April 29. The school recognized some of the artwork with awards last week.
Schoch said the passion his students show in their work is powerful.
“Sometimes we’re surprised as professors here at the campus about how energetic and engaged students are in communicating about themselves, trying to connect with the wider world,” he said. “Whatever we can do here on campus to facilitate that and amplify that so that students can feel like they’re getting traction, developing their own creative voice and getting their work out into the world, we’re happy to help.”
