Students at North Hennepin Community College are showing off their artistic side.
Tucked in North Hennepin Community College’s Fine Arts Center building is the Joseph Gazzuolo Fine Arts Gallery and on display is some work from the students that is impressive
“It celebrates the end of the year, and it is the culmination of our teaching and the students efforts,” said North Hennepin photography instructor Will Agar. “We have photography, which I teach, we also have digital video, we also have paint, of course drawing which is a foundation, of course we have textiles.”
Textile arts student Rawshan Khondker Huq pointed out, “I painted these things and this is my, I have a little daughter, [who is] eight years old, [it’s] her real hair.”
Although a native of Bangladesh, Huq is fascinated with Native American culture.
“When I got nominated, I was really very, very, happy,” Huq said of her pieces being displayed in the gallery.
All of the pieces you will see have already made a preliminary cut just to be displayed in the show.
“We have two dimensional design, three dimensional design, we have mixed media, we also have ceramics, graphic design, computer art and illustration,” said Agar describing the variety of mediums you will see in the art exhibit.
The student art exhibition is on display now through April 26th and admission is free.
