The show is open to all students who have taken studio art classes at SFCC. Participating student-artists collaborated with art faculty to select work that best represented them. 

The show features 83 artworks by 42 artists in a wide range of media, from paintings, drawings, photography, 3D printing, and ceramics. Awards including President’s Awards, Excellence in Design, and Excellence in Studio along with cash prizes were presented at the student show opening on April 11 by a panel of art faculty that consisted of Dr. Meghan McClellan and Donnie Luper.
