18th Annual Student Art & Design Exhibition

52 Rowan College at Burlington County (RCBC) student artists will showcase their talent and creativity in art and design at the new exhibition, opening Friday, May 5, at the college’s Enterprise Center on the Mount Laurel Campus.

Over 120 works of art including photography, drawing, painting, sculpture, ceramics, mixed media, jewelry and graphic design, will be featured during RCBC’s 18th Annual Student Art & Design Exhibition.

The free opening reception will be held on Friday, May 5 from 5 to 7 p.m., in the Enterprise Center on the Mount Laurel Campus. The exhibition will be displayed through June 23. The exhibit was coordinated by Jessica Kane, Jeff Bailey, Tiffany Ruocco, Lila Ingui and Jayne Yantz.

After the opening reception at 7:30 p.m. be sure to stop by the auditorium to celebrate with RCBC’s Lamplight Players as they present “Godspell 2012”. General admission is $15 and students with a valid ID are $10. To purchase tickets, visit rcbc.edu/theatre/tickets.

RCBC’s Student Art Gallery is a part of RCBC’s overall transformation plan to create a more modernized campus experience. 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, and moving the fine arts studio, graphic design and fashion design programs to Mount Holly to join the existing culinary arts program.

“Although very relevant to all of the sad deaths that have occurred recently, it was very relevant when I grew up in the ‘60s,” Sher said of the piece’s focus on addiction. “It’s affected my life through loved ones who are still with us and sober for 14 years.”
