Just found this in my email earlier...  I am proud to announce some outstanding student work! and the recognition of that work. See below for a complete list of the Juror's picks as well as the Boardroom Art Awards (the fulltime faculty picks).


Good morning,
Sending on behalf of Christine Holtz and the Art Gallery,


The SCC Annual Juried Student Art Exhibition is only on display in the Fine Arts building until Friday, May 3rd.  If you haven't already, please stop by to view a variety of artworks created by the talented SCC art department students!  Some of the work is even for sale!  If you are interested in purchasing a piece, please contact Christine Holtz (choltz@stchas.edu).

We are also very pleased to announce the recipients of several different awards from the show.  The visiting juror, Brigham Dimick, chose awards for each category in the show.  We also have a list of Boardroom Award winners.  These students had artwork chosen by the faculty to hang in the campus Boardroom in the Administration Building for a special six-month exhibition.  If you have any of these students in your class or see them on campus, please congratulate them on their award!

Spring 2013 - Advanced Digital Photography Book Projects are here!

For anyone interested in getting a sense of what we do in ART225 - Digital Photo II, here are our most recent editions to the collection of books that we have been creating over the past two years. I am really proud of all of the students and their hard work and enthusiasm that has gone into creating these books. The projects in themselves are a strong testament to commitment and an elongated exploration of an idea. These are a real treat. We spend nearly 2/3's of the entire semester working on a body of work that investigates a topic of their choosing and then we work through the process of organizing and shaping our photographs into a book format. We then publish them through blurb.com.  Check 'em out!!
