Sussex County Community College will present the 23rd Annual AFA Fine Art Students Exhibition from May 2 – June 16, 2014 in the Art Gallery in Building C on campus.

The exhibition will feature more than 100 works of art created by the students in the Associate of Fine Arts degree program. Painting, drawing, sculpture, digital fine art and photography are represented among the works selected for this year’s show by a jury of Fine Art faculty members who are also professional artists.

“It is important for all artists to see their efforts displayed in a professional gallery setting and to compare their work with their peers,” said Julie McWilliams, coordinator of the Fine Arts Degree Program.

“The Fine Art students at SCCC have chosen to commit to a serious study of art," Gallery Coordinator Douglas Petersen said. "This exhibition reflects the effort they have made throughout the year to produce work with the professional finish expected of an artist. Given the rigorous standards applied to the selection process, it’s considered a high honor to participate in this exhibition.”

The public is invited to the exhibition’s opening reception on Friday, May 2, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the gallery, located in Building C on the school’s campus in Newton. For directions to the college visit the website: www.sussex.edu.
