ROCK SPRINGS —Western Wyoming Community College Art students will showcase their work in "First Impressions", the student art show at the WWCC Art Gallery from December 7 through January 7. A reception and ceramics sale will be held on Friday, December 7 from 4:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m.
Students will be represented with work from Drawing I, Design 2D and Painting I which are under the instruction of Professor of Art and Gallery Director Dr. Florence McEwin. Photography I students will also be represented in the show. These are students who have completed beginning instruction in wet lab techniques under adjunct instructors, Paul NG and Carlo Harryman. All levels of Ceramic students, instructed by Bart Fetz, will display gallery work and have a mini sale of their accomplishments from these ceramic classes during the opening reception on Friday the 7th of December from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. A percentage of proceeds from this sale are applied to the program costs.
"The student show is a semi-annual event that showcases beginning approaches to technique and concepts within the art foundation program," said WWCC Professor of Art, Dr. Florence McEwin.
In addition, included in this semester's display are silkscreen prints under the guest artist instruction of Dylan McManus, currently instructing in the print department of SUNY New Paltz in upper state NY. McManus is a western graduate who went on to the University of Oregon for a Bachelor of fine Arts degree and then achieved a Master of Fine Arts at SUNY. McManus' three day October workshop was an intensive development of both technique and concept within the silkscreen process. In this technique, a complex layering process is employed. Examples of the student works, which were produced in a limited edition of prints will be on view.
The "First Impressions" students' art show is free and open to the public. The WWCC Art Gallery is open Monday through Thursday 9 a.m. until 10 p.m. and Friday 9 a.m. until 6 p.m.
