RIVERWORKS Gallery in Greenville, SC, Features Works by Students of Greenville Technical College

RIVERWORKS Gallery in Greenville, SC, will present 27 Awards, featuring works by the 27 award winners from The VPA Annual Student Exhibition at Greenville Technical College, on view from Dec. 6 - 20, 2013. A reception will be held on Dec. 6, from 6-9pm.

The VPA Annual Student Exhibition marks the culmination of a year of studio work by recognizing the best works created by Greenville Technical College’s visual and applied art students. 27 Awards represents the many courses of study offered by Greenville Technical College’s Visual and Performing Arts Department including sculpture, advertising design, computer animation, design and color, digital illustration, drawing, painting, photography, printmaking and website design.

According to Shane Howell, Head of the Department of Visual and Performing Arts, “27 Awards encourages our students and provides them a professional venue to celebrate their talents.” The exhibition offers the public the opportunity to admire and celebrate the successes of Greenville Technical College’s Department of Visual and Performing Arts.

Enid Williams, Greenville Technical College’s Professor of Art and Gallery Director of the Greer Campus Galleries noted, “Jurors Jo Carol Mitchell-Rogers’ and Nathan Cox’s academic and studio experience in both two and three dimensional disciplines resulted in a balanced and careful selection process. The jurors were extremely sensitive to overall quality and conceptual strength of the 151 submissions, noting particular strength in the areas of drawing and photography. Submissions were narrowed to 81, making it what a juried exhibition should be: a competitive process resulting in a strong and cohesive show.” The jurors, Anderson University’s Professor of Art Mitchell-Rogers and Associate Professor of Art Cox selected 27 Awards now on view in RIVERWORKS Gallery.

RIVERWORKS Gallery is operated by and for the faculty and students of the Department of Visual and Performing Arts at Greenville Technical College. The gallery is located on River Street, Suite 202, along the scenic Reedy River in downtown Greenville.
