When arriving on Seminole State College property to visit this art exhibit, you will want to park closest to the Performing and Fine Arts Building. Parking is free. The college art gallery is open Monday thru Thursday 10am – 4pm and during intermission theater performances. The art gallery admission is free to visit, but they kindly ask for any kind of monetary donation to keep the college art gallery open and running strong.
On April 6, 2017, the college held their open reception for he gallery. Many people attended this gallery opening to mingle with the Fine Arts students, Fine Arts Professors, and college administration, to horror their creativity in their work throughout this past year. There was an awards ceremony given by the SSC Fine Arts Department and awards were given out to the Fine Arts students. After the awards ceremony had concluded, the artwork winners had their work marked with Best of Show and Merit Awards. Many of these art students are graduating and transferring to other universities to finish out their degrees in Fine Arts. Light refreshments will be served at the open reception after the awards ceremony.
This art exhibit includes photography, painting, printmaking, drawing, mixed-media, ceramics and sculpture. There will be a wide range of subject matter and art styles. Plus, many of these art students have put long hours of hard work into their masterpieces. Most of these college art students attended the opening reception. Visitors will have a chance to see the winning artwork in a few categories.
This year’s Best of Show winner will be giving his or her artwork to college permanent collection and be given a large check for their artwork. Last year’s Best of Show winner was a sculpture piece entitled “A Diver’s Mark” by Thurman Totten. Totten valued his piece at $925. If you walk around the rest of the Fine Arts building and one will notice some of the works of art on display from the college permanent collection.
