The College of the Redwoods annual Juried Student Art Exhibition will be on display from April 23 through May 9, with a public reception and awards ceremony held on Tuesday, April 23 from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m.
Each spring semester, this exhibition features outstanding examples of student work made in classes spanning many mediums including, drawing, painting, sculpture, ceramics, photography, digital media, jewelry and metal-smithing, animation and more. This event affords campus and local communities an opportunity to view and purchase artwork by some of our region’s most promising emerging artists.
This year we are honored to have Susan J. Bloom from the Department of Theatre, Film, and Dance at Humboldt State University as our juror. Bloom has an MFA in Film Production from the University of Texas in Austin, and over 20 years of experience working on network TV shows, feature documentaries, independent projects, and corporate media. Bloom also works as a freelance editor and camera person on a wide range of projects. She taught for 8 years at Brooks Institute of Photography in the Visual Journalism, Film Production, and Scientific and Technological Imaging programs.
