GRC Student Art and LabTech Exhibitions Now Open

By Scott Zinn, June 8, 2022

The Helen S. Smith Gallery presents the annual student exhibition as well as the biennial Lab Tech Exhibition, engaging viewers both in the gallery, amidst small curated exhibitions on campus, and virtually!  In the gallery in her more than 50-year tenure, there have been hosted a remarkable number of NW greats who have celebrated national and international acclaim throughout their careers, some of which began here at the college as students. The student exhibition heralds as the annual crowning achievement for Green River art students. For many, it is a first-time exhibition of their work, an opportunity to make their voices heard, a method of self-expression and a moment of pride. Thank you to the campus community for an epic school year and for the support of our emerging artists.

The Annual Student Exhibition provides a special annual opportunity set aside for our art students to find their footing as exhibiting artists as many prepare to transfer to art schools in the fall, or gain confidence to continue with us to further develop a strong portfolio. We are exceptionally proud of the work they do and are excited to present a snapshot, conceptually, of this year’s student experience.

The Biennial Lab Tech Exhibition features the work of our esteemed support colleagues in the visual arts. Expertise and guidance shared with students by the Fine Art Division lab techs are second to none in a studio setting. Along with keeping our studios in top condition, lab tech mentorship and technical knowledge contributes to student learning about their own techniques and processes. This biennial exhibition pays homage to our lab techs as diverse artists in their own right. Help us celebrate the work of Heather Cornelius, Aaron Hartzell, Ouidakathryn Bryson and Devon Urquhart.
