CPCC Ross Gallery featuring 2014 CPCC Juried Student Show March 24 – May 1

WHAT: Central Piedmont Community College’s (CPCC) Ross Gallery is currently displaying works from the college’s 2014 Annual Juried Student Show, comprised of works created by students enrolled in the Visual Arts program.

This year’s student show contains 76 individual artworks by 50 CPCC Visual Arts students, created over the past year at CPCC. Works on view represent all media taught at CPCC, including painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, ceramics, jewelry/metalworking and more.

Proceeds from all sold artwork will benefit future gallery programming and exhibitions.

This year’s event juror is Seth Rouser, a painting instructor at Winthrop University, located in Rock Hill, S.C. Rouser has shown his paintings throughout the region and will have a solo exhibition in Ross Gallery in fall 2014.

Works awarded first, second and third place honors by Rouser will be announced during an opening reception on April 10 from 5-7 p.m. This event takes place the same week as the college’s Sensoria celebration, being held April 4 – 12, 2014. To learn more, visit sensoria.cpcc.edu.
