Shadow - Jennifer Jones

The exemplary talent and creativity of 38 Rowan College at Burlington County student artists will be on display at “The Best of 2015 Student Showcase,” a new exhibit opening at the college’s Student Art Gallery on Friday, Dec. 11.

The exhibit, which was only open to RCBC students, features art of many mediums, including photography, drawing, painting, sculpture, jewelry, and graphic design. In total, 101 pieces of artwork were selected to be a part of this year’s annual showcase.  The exhibit was curated by Jessica Kane, campus curator, and juried by professionals in the arts, including Kimberly Brown, Joan Johnson, Peter Scott and Edward Ward.

The opening reception on Friday, Dec. 11 runs from 5 to 7 p.m. and is free and open to the public.

The RCBC’s Student Art Gallery, located in downtown historic Mount Holly at 1 High Street, plays prominently in the campus transformation plan RCBC President Paul Drayton recently detailed. The plan calls for the college to create an impressive arts presence in Mount Holly by moving the gallery to the front of the college’s Mount Holly Center to improve foot traffic and the streetscape, adding a kiln, creating a fine arts studio, and moving the graphic design and fashion design programs to Mount Holly to join the existing culinary arts program. 

Visitors can see “The Best of 2015 Student Showcase” during gallery hours through Saturday, Feb. 13. The gallery is open Wednesdays, Thursdays, and the second Saturday of the month from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Fridays from 3:30 to 7 p.m.
