DOBSON — Surry Community College students enrolled in Fine Arts in Visual Arts classes along with the Graphic Design students will exhibit their work from the fall semester beginning with a reception on Nov. 30 from 5 to 7 p.m. on the college’s campus at 630 S. Main St., Dobson.

The showcase will highlight artwork from a variety of two- and three-dimensional drawing and design media including charcoal, graphite, ink, colored pencil, markers, acrylic painting, printmaking and clay. The work includes a variety of subject matter including still life studies, experimentation with the design elements and some creations from imagination. The work is a result of diligence and creativity from students enrolled in Introduction to Drawing, 2-Dimensional Design, Painting, Ceramics and Digital Photography classes.

To explain the benefits of students displaying their work, Surry’s Associate in Fine Arts in Visual Arts Lead Instructor Danajean Mabry said, “When art students display their work for peers and community members, they begin to realize how art connects us as humans, allowing us to share ideas and appreciate the visual world around us.”

This semester’s exhibition will be the displayed in the new gallery space added to the third floor of the J-Building on the college’s campus.

Mabry expressed excitement for the addition of a gallery to the J-Building where many fine arts classes are held.

She said, “I love to see our students stopping in the hallway to look more closely at a photograph or work of art. Sometimes I hear students talking among themselves about a piece that made them laugh or think deeply about something, and this is when I realize how important it is to keep student artwork on display.”

During the opening reception, hosted by Surry’s Visual Arts Club, the college’s art studios will be open to the public along with the gallery space. Student artists will also be on hand to answer questions and provide comments about their work. The exhibition will remain available for viewing in the gallery space during the college’s operating hours through Dec. 12.
