At the end of each semester the art students of Kirkwood Community College are able to submit their artwork for the chance to be featured in the Student Art Showcase. 

This semester the show begins April 6 and will feature a variety of pieces from the different art courses offered at Kirkwood. The reception will be held on April 30 and the show runs through May 1. 

Greta Songe, art show curator, said “We have such a range of art classes and really great 2D and 3D and photography programs that it’s just great to see the mix of stuff that comes out.” 

Songe stated the art show has a large diversity of artwork that gets entered so each show is different. “It’s the discretion of the gallery director that semester of how to go about doing the student show, so it changes,” she added.

Chris Mortenson, art instructor, said he is enthusiastic about the experience the art show brings students. “We have some places here in the building and around campus to show student work, which is nice but having a more formal setting, like down in the gallery, I think is a really important thing to have,” Mortenson said. 

Mortenson added the gallery is an invaluable setting for aspiring artists. “Everyone should come and look at it, because a big part of doing it is having an audience to look at it,” he said.
