Sterling College’s Art & Design Department always has something exciting on display in the main gallery of the Art and Media Center; making sure to always show off a variety of both student pieces as well as professional works from which students can learn. However, on Thursday, April 5 at 6 p.m. the department hosted its eighth annual Juried Student Art Show which contained a variety of student works from the past year. The event, supplied by a variety of snacks, gave the opportunity for students to see all the hard work many of their peers have put into the program.
As this was a juried art show, a few select winners were chosen from the pieces that were selected for the show. Coming in third place, was Isabella Footh (Junior) with her graphic design piece, “Wall Street Journal.” In second, was Jose Chavez (senior) with his photo, “Christian Galindo Portrait.” In first place, was Anna Darcy (sophomore) with her piece, “Epiphany.”
Students who attended the event were also allowed the opportunity to vote for their favorite selection of the pieces presented. Anna Darcy won the Student Choice award in addition to her first place award!
It was a really fun time to just hang out with the other art students and I wasn’t expecting to win anything, honestly… I felt proud that the professors and judges felt that it was worthy of first place and I’m definitely thankful for my classmates that voted for me!

The work from the art show is on display until April 20 at the Sterling College Art and Media Center which is open to the public Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
