Salt Lake Community College’s Student Art Showcase displayed a culmination of the 2011-2012 creative talent on Friday, April 6 during a ceremony announcing the show’s winners.
Various individuals and organizations presented 22 awards, including new categories created by SLCC’s Student Life and Leadership as well as a newly formed “student commercial art and design group” called INK SLCC.
“I’m pretty stoked about it,” says Molly Dallimore, who won an Award of Merit for her piece “Sunday Shoes.” “It’s awesome. I’ve never won an award for my artwork at the community college, so it’s cool.”
Some of the jury members included individuals in department-specific fields, such as the head of an ad agency, a design and illustrator, an animator working in the videogame industry, a fine artist and a well-known photographer.
“We had this year over 600 submissions into the art show. And it’s a juried show, so there’s a process [that ensures] that the highest quality work makes it into the show,” says Andrew Wilson, VAD instructor and Co-Chair for the event.
Dr. Anna Szabados, the Dean of Arts, Communication and New Media, was also on hand to present the ceremony.
“I am honored to be part of the event and I am very pleased with the quality of the work that is coming out of the school of Communication and New Media,” says Szabados. “The students are getting close to professional level.”
The student gallery will be open public viewing each day from noon until 6 p.m. until April 19 in the Science and Industry Building atrium on the Taylorsville Redwood Campus.
