College of the Redwoods presents the 2021 Juried Student Exhibition opening April 13, with a virtual reception and awards ceremony at 3:00 pm. This online exhibition of student work, available at www.redwoods.edu/artgallery, will feature outstanding examples of recent student work made in CR classes spanning multiple mediums including drawing, painting, sculpture, ceramics, photography and more.
This year, the CR Gallery hosts its second virtual student exhibition. Visitors will be able to conveniently “stroll” through the gallery virtually, in a high-quality, full-screen format. Exhibition viewers can easily browse through detailed artwork images, and learn absorbing details about these emerging student artists.
The exhibition juror is Lynn M. Jones, local artist, printmaker, and business owner. Originally from the San Francisco suburbs, Jones received her BA from Humboldt State University. After graduating, she honed her talents in carving linoleum blocks while also broadening her letterpress printing abilities through an internship and personal studio pursuits. In 2016, she opened Just My Type Letterpress Paperie in Old Town, which has since flourished, winning the Eureka Chamber of Commerce's 2020 Small Business of the Year Award and demonstrating Jones's steadfast commitment to creating fine art and culturally enriching our community. More information about Jones can be found at www.justmytypeletterpress.com.
This exhibition is made possible through the generous support of Robert and Desirée Yarber, the Ingrid Nickelsen Trust, Mary Mallahan & Dave Bazard, Jesse Wiedel, Cindy Hooper, Emily Silver, Holly Yashi, Pierson Building Center, Fire Arts Center, A to Z Eye Care, Advanced Security Systems, Dutch Bros. Coffee, Ellis Art and Engineering, Dick Taylor Craft Chocolate, and Jitter Bean Coffee Co.
