CONTRAST and BALANCE STUDENT ART SHOW Friday – December 7, 2018
Event DescriptionFriday December 7 | 4:30PM - 7PM is the opening reception in the art gallery, free and open to the public and is a celebration of semester’s end and art! Accompanied with a ceramic sale.
December 7 through January 9, 2019, in the WWCC Art Gallery, the art show will be open to view.
The art students’ show at Western Wyoming Community College (WWCC) is the culmination of a first semester Art Foundation Program that prepares students to major and advance within the applied and fine arts area. Students from Design: 2D, Drawing I, Digital Imaging I, Photo I, Painting I and all levels of Ceramics display the best of their efforts. Students who participate in the art program are in-state, out of state and international students, who are also of traditional and non- traditional ages.
Students’ learning opportunities this fall semester have included a guest artist workshop given by Lilianne Milgrom, in conjunction with the collage show Esprit de France that was held in the art gallery. Examples of student work from this workshop encompassing a variety of subject matter will be presented in Contrast and Balance, the art students’ show. The work demonstrates multiple techniques of collage application and finish.
Introductory courses In Design, Painting and Drawing are taught by Professor of Art, Florence McEwin. “We have a large and talented entering class of art majors who are taking foundation this semester. Foundation majors go on to undertake programs in both applied and fine arts and will become everything from teachers to animators,” according to Professor McEwin. Photo and digital course work within art is instructed by Hank Ketelsen. Students transfer design information and understanding into the photographic vocabulary and techniques learned in these courses. That same design vocabulary of contrast and balance takes a transformation into clay vessels and forms in ceramic course work, taught by Bart Fetz.
