QUINCY — John Wood Community College’s 10th annual student “Show and Sell” spring exhibit is being held now through May 13 in the the Heath Center Art Gallery. The artist reception and awards ceremony was held on April 6.
Steven Soebbing, chair of the fine arts department, judged this year’s art show that features numerous pieces of artwork by JWCC students. The top winners were:
- Madison Beck (best in show, “Urban Building 2”);
- Eve Olivas (first place, “Beautifully Rusted”);
- Riley Frankenhoff (second place, “The Female Peer”);
- Luke Mittermeyer (third place, “Leaden Docks”).
Honorable mention was given to include Nciola Carter, “Night in a City;” Morgan Frankenhoff, “Girl with a Pearl Earring;” McCartney Lewis, “In Ecstasy;” and Benjamin Bland, “Portrait of the Duke of Urbino.” Ethan Schemerhorn also participated in the art show.
The winners received a certificate and cash prize sponsored by the John Wood Community College Foundation Office.
Some pieces will be for sale. Students keep most of the proceeds to jump start their art and design careers. The college retains a portion of each sale to enhance the arts education program. Prize awards are made possible by contributions to the visual arts fund with the JWCC Foundation.
New this year is a silent auction of artwork by former JWCC students. Bids are accepted through May 6. The exhibit is open through May 13 during regular business hours.
