College of the Redwoods will present an online display of the 2020 Juried Student Exhibition beginning April 14. The virtual show of student work will be on view at the Creative Arts Gallery website, www.redwoods.edu/artgallery, where visitors can explore the exhibition in full.
In addition, every day from April 14 to May 14, 2020, select images of student work will be posted to the gallery’s Instagram @redwoodsgallery and Facebook, www.facebook.com/collegeoftheredwoodsgallery/.
Each spring, the Juried Student Exhibition features outstanding examples of student work made in CR classes spanning multiple mediums including drawing, painting, sculpture, ceramics, photography, jewelry, wood-working and more. This year, adjusting to the times, the exhibition will be sharing the work of CR’s student-artists solely with the aid of virtual technology and social media.
This year’s exhibition juror is Gina Tuzzi, instructor of painting and drawing at Humboldt State University and local artist living in Blue Lake. Tuzzi is originally from Santa Cruz, California. She received her BA in painting and printmaking at Humboldt State University, and later attended Mills College where she received a MFA in painting. Tuzzi has exhibited her work both nationally and internationally, is a Murphy and Cadogan fellow, and a two-time SECA nominee. More information about her work can be found at www.ginatuzzi.com.
This exhibition is made possible through the generous sponsorship of Robert and Desirée Yarber, the Ingrid Nickelson Trust, Mary Mallahan & Dave Bazard, Advanced Security Systems, Cindy Hooper, Jesse Wiedel, Emily Silver, Ellis Art and Engineering, Holly Yashi, Jitter Bean Coffee Co., Dutch Bros Coffee, Redwood Art Association, and Phoenix Ceramic & Fire Supply.
The Creative Arts Gallery at College of the Redwoods is located on the Eureka Main Campus, North Entrance. The gallery is currently closed until further notice due to limited CR campus operation status.
