RCCC students exhibit artwork

The public is invited to view the artwork of Rowan-Cabarrus Community College students at the annual Rowan-Cabarrus Student Autumn Exhibition. First place was awarded to Vanessa Jiminez for her digital photograph. Jiminez plans to pursue a career in visual arts. All photographs were taken by RCCC art student Jessica Keever.
Hosted and supported by the Rowan Arts Council, pieces in the Rowan-Cabarrus Autumn Exhibition are on display at the Rail Walk Studios and Gallery, 409 N. Lee St., in Salisbury. The public is welcome to attend free of charge from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays, through Nov. 19.
“I continue to be amazed at the beautiful work our art students create,” said Dr. Carol S. Spalding, RCCC president. “We are proud that our fine arts program has grown so much and Rowan-Cabarrus can contribute to the robust art community in this area.”
“The exhibition is a great opportunity for students to share their creative work with the community,” said Jenn Selby, instructor of photography and visual arts. “They love talking about their work and it benefits them professionally.”
All students are encouraged to submit their work, especially those pursing an associate degree in fine arts. Also, for the first time, the college was proud to have participation from students in the college’s GED program.
The exhibition is a partnership of the Arts Council and Rowan-Cabarrus and allows students to show their work in a professional setting. The Rail Walk Gallery, located in Salisbury’s growing downtown art district, also is a sponsor of this year’s exhibition.
This year, students will display work in several media, including painting, photography, drawing, sculpture and new media. Growing each year since its inception, the 2011 exhibition displays the work of 48 Rowan-Cabarrus student artists.
The exhibit is presented by the Rowan Arts Council with support from F&M Bank, and gallery space provided by Rail Walk artists. The winners, judged by local artists, received cash prizes.
Rowan-Cabarrus offers a range of arts courses, including drawing, painting, sculpture, watercolor, photography, digital photography, design, art appreciation and a survey of American art. The college also offers an associate degree program in fine arts (AFA).
The college is registering students for the spring 2012 semester. Classes begin on Jan. 10. For more program information and course descriptions, see www.rccc.edu.
