According to event organizers, the annual exhibition gives Cuesta College Fine Arts Program students an opportunity to participate in a process usually limited to professional artists, and a chance to display and talk about their work. The exhibit will include art created with photography, ceramics, sculpture, painting, drawing, 3-D, and graphic design.
“This year’s submissions thoroughly demonstrate the diversity of both medium and content that the department has to offer,” said Harold J. Miossi Art Gallery Coordinator Emma Saperstein. “I’m so impressed with our students’ talent and drive. We are also excited to showcase our performing arts ensembles and state-of-the-art classrooms.”
The Harold J. Miossi Art Gallery is located in room 7170, on the San Luis Obispo campus of Cuesta College. It is open Monday-Friday, 11:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. and the 1st and 3rd Saturdays from 12:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. Admission is free. For more information, please call (805) 546-3202.
