APTOS—On Monday Cabrillo Gallery celebrated the opening of its annual Student Exhibition, showcasing over 75 works from students of Cabrillo College’s Art Studio and Art Photography departments.
The online show represents all disciplines taught at the school, which includes painting, drawing, printing, ceramic, sculpture, small-scale metal and jewelry, graphic design, traditional and digital photography, and video.
Every year students and faculty select up to three pieces from each class to be part of the exhibit, presenting a cross-section of work.
Gallery Program Coordinator Victoria May said that students this year seemed excited to have their work shown, even if it is “just” online.
“It’s still a commendation of their efforts, which are most likely even greater than usual as they carve out space and time from their convoluted lives at home, or go through the extra effort to go to the labs on campus,” May said. “I personally am especially impressed with the results of the studio classes that are working purely remotely—what the students are able to gain through online instruction in areas that rely heavily on handwork.”
Student Exhibition 2021 is now available for viewing and will run through May 15. You can view the exhibit here.
