juried exhibition of work by students in the Department of Fine Arts at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College is currently on display in the Young People’s Gallery at Waterworks Visual Arts Center.
The Autumn Exhibition will feature works from 22 students in a variety of media including photography, ceramics, painting, drawing, video and sculpture.
“By giving students the opportunity to exhibit their work in a museum setting, it better prepares them for a career in the arts,” said art instructor Peter Goff. “The partnership with Waterworks gives the students a professional platform to share their work with the community.”
In a partnership with Rowan-Cabarrus, Waterworks is a classroom extension providing studio space and equipment to help expand the arts curriculum at the college.
An opening reception for the exhibition will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. today.
Light refreshments will be served during the free event.
The exhibition will run through Feb. 1, 2014. Admission to the Waterworks is free, but donations are appreciated.
The gallery at 123 E. Liberty St. is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday; 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday; and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.
