Northwest Florida State College (NWFSC) is set to host its annual Arnie Hart Juried Student Show & Art Faculty Exhibition at the Mattie Kelly Arts Center Galleries.
- The event, made possible by generous donations from Ms. Jean Hart in honor of Professor Hart’s legacy in ceramics, will feature artwork from talented students in two and three-dimensional categories.
This year’s exhibition is especially exciting as it will be judged by Dr. Aja Roache, the director of the Foster Tanner Gallery at Florida A&M University. Dr. Roache will be responsible for selecting the Best-in-Show and first through third place winners. Students who place in the competition will receive cash awards and scholarship nominations.
- The opening reception on April 7th, from 6 to 8 p.m., will include an opportunity to meet with NWFSC professors and enjoy a dance performance by the College’s dance professor, Vanessa Kanamoto.
- The event is open to the public, and refreshments will be served.
The Arnie Hart Juried Student Show & Art Faculty Exhibition allows students to showcase their artwork in a professional setting and provides a unique opportunity for the public to see the incredible talent and creativity of the students at NWFSC.
