The Art Committee at North Seattle College has recently been granted an annual $1,000 to purchase student artwork! Art Committee members met with President Warren Brown and a panel to present their request to receive $1,000 annually to buy student artwork from the Juried Student Art Exhibition. Last year, the college purchased my ceramic sculpture and so I was able to provide a testimony of my experience to share with the President:
“The college’s purchase of my ceramic sculpture ‘Big Head’ not only informed me that NSC has an exclusive art collection, but also made me feel included. As a woman of color, I felt welcomed and honored that my piece would be shared with all types of people at the college. This purchase has also gave me confidence to continue my art practice and to take more art classes at NSC.”
Every year, student artwork is exhibited in the Art Gallery during spring quarter to showcase student artwork made during the school year. This $1,000 will allow NSC to purchase student artwork for the school’s art collection from this year’s show, and future student art exhibits to come!
If you have made art in an NSC Art class in Spring 2018, Summer 2018, Fall 2018, Winter 2019, and/or Spring 2019, please consider submitting your artwork by Monday, May 6. The NSC Student Art Exhibition will be open to the public from Wednesday, May 15, 2019 until Friday, June 14, 2019. The NSC Art Gallery Hours are Monday to Thursday 11am to 7pm, and Friday from 12pm to 5pm. For more information visit: http://artgallery.northseattle.edu and nscartgroup.com.
