A wealth of creative potential and esthetic musings is available for your viewing pleasure at Anne Arundel Community College’s annual Student Art Show now through April 23 at the Cade Center for Fine Arts Gallery on the Arnold campus.
Exhibit juror Nora Sturges, painter and associate professor at Towson University, selected about 130 artworks for inclusion in the show from more than 400 pieces submitted by students. The show contains paintings, drawings, prints, photographs and sculpture that represent the range of AACC student artistic endeavors.
Sturges also selected work from eight students for purchase prizes. These exceptional artworks will enter the AACC Student Art Collection for permanent display at the college. Selected are a woodcut of a blue heron by Michael Wuyek of Annapolis; a photograph of wildly barking dogs by Pat McQuade of Glen Burnie; a sensitive oil portrait entitled “Stacy” by Joanna Hopkinson of Annapolis; two colorful and out-of-this world ink drawings featuring aliens and consumer goods by Kelsey Almendariz of Annapolis; the self-explanatory ceramic “Lonely Outhouse” by Nicholas Edwards of Annapolis; an abstract and patterned tour de force by Anthony Rosado of Severn; “A Study in Leaves” intaglio print by Joyce Feldman of Chester; and J. Maria Baker of Annapolis’ colorful oil painting “The Bird Seller.”
