Art Student Annual runs through June 3

By Chemeketa Public Affairs

Art Student Annual 2016Whether by paint or photography, canvas or sculpture, glass or wood, Chemeketa art students used many different media to express themselves.

Those expressions are now on display for the rest of us during the Art Student Annual, on display in the Gretchen Schuette Art Gallery on June 3.

Artists Josh Kinsey and Kate Simmons, who were both featured artists in the gallery this year, served as the exhibit’s jurists, determining who made it into the show and also awarding the top three prizes. Any student who had taken an art class at Chemeketa in the past two years was eligible to submit their work for the exhibit.

Those awards were as follows–

  • 3rd place: “The White Wolf” by Roberto Oran
  • 2nd place: “Magpie” by Peter Schomus
  • 1st place: “Breathe” by Kenneth McCallister

Visitors to the gallery, located in Building 3 on the Salem campus, will also have the ability to select their favorite piece among the exhibited for a People’s Choice Award, which will be given at the end of the show.

The Gretchen Schuette Art Gallery is open Tuesday through Thursday from 9:30 am to 4 pm and Fridays from 11 am to 4 pm.
