The College of the Canyons Art Gallery will present the 22nd Annual Student Art Exhibition, an eclectic and stunning collection of work created by the college’s talented student artists from Tuesday, April 17, through Thursday, May 24.

A reception for the artists will be held on Tuesday, April 17 from noon to 4 p.m.

The works on display will include drawing, photography, painting, sculpture, graphic design, animation, and 2D and 3D design.

“This will be my first experience with the student exhibition here at COC,” said Pamela Lewis, COC Art Gallery director. “I’m looking forward to celebrating our students’ creativity and artistic achievements. I’m sure it will be another wonderful student show in what has become a long tradition of wonderful student exhibitions here at the college.”

Some student art exhibition works become part of COC’s permanent student art collection and are displayed at the college’s Valencia and Canyon Country campuses.

The annual showcase exhibition also acts as an educational and professional experience for students. Works are submitted for review and a guest juror selected from the greater Los Angeles arts community traditionally curates the exhibition.

This year’s juror is Los Angeles artist and former COC Art Gallery Director Larry Hurst, a graduate of Chouinard Art Institute (Cal Arts). A prolific artist, Hurst creates elegant geometric abstract paintings, poetic collages, and intensively hand-crafted, often humorous sculptures. His work can be found in many public and private collections.

The gallery is open 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Thursdays. Those unable to visit the gallery during normal hours are welcome to contact the gallery to schedule a viewing appointment.

All gallery exhibitions and related events are free and open to the public.
