Artistic students at Los Medanos College will get an opportunity to showcase the projects that they have worked hard on next semester at the LMC Student Art Show 2018.

The art show, opening Tuesday, Jan. 30 and running through Tuesday, Feb. 27, will feature a large variety of artwork mediums that the LMC community can enjoy. A reception will also be held Thursday, Jan. 8 from 4 to 6 p.m. and an award ceremony will commence at 5 p.m.

While the show and its festivities are a few months away, students that are interested in participating in the show are required to submit their work by Friday, Dec. 8 at midnight. Those who want to enter the show must be currently enrolled in an LMC art course and can submit their art electronically through photo or video formats.

Students can enter as many pieces as they desire, but can only submit a maximum of two pieces of artwork per category, which includes 2D and 3D design, advertising, animation, ceramics, color theory, digital, drawing, graphic design, painting, photography, printmaking and sculpture.

This art show not only provides LMC art students with an opportunity to showcase their artistic skills, but it can also provide them with an award. The Art Guild of the Delta, a non-profit organization based in the East Bay, has given the art show $1,500 towards cash prizes for the winners of the art show. Local art supply retailers have also partnered up with the LMC Student Art Show to give out art goodie bags.

Aside from the various prizes, Judy Pettite, LMC professor and art show curator, encourages students to enter the show because “it is a great opportunity to showcase their work” and it can “help to build their resume.”

One of the many art students submitting work in the art show, Moses Lawson is excited to have the opportunity to display his work because he has never done it before. “Why not?” he questioned.

“I’m always envious of the art pieces I see on display,” said Moses, adding that he would love for people to feel the same way about his artwork. “Man, I’d love to have that feeling.”

To submit work in the show or to find out any additional information, please contact lmcgallery@gmail.com.
