The CCC Art Student Show is an annual juried event that showcases the talents and creativity of the college’s art students and features a range of disciplines, including graphic arts, basic design, drawing, painting, ceramics, photography and printmaking.  CCC students currently enrolled or have been enrolled in art courses throughout the past two academic years are invited to submit artwork to be considered for the exhibit.  75 pieces of artwork were selected for the show from nearly 200 submissions, and award winners were chosen from three discipline categories.  CCC studio art instructors include:  Richard Rowland (Ceramics), Lucien Swerdloff (Graphic Design), David Homer (Photography), Miki’ala Souza and Ben Rosenberg (Printmaking), and Kristin Shauck (Drawing, Painting, and Design).

Serving as this year’s juror is Annie Eskelin, the Executive Director of Astoria Visual Arts, a local nonprofit that works to enhance, strengthen and promote the arts in Greater Astoria. She also enjoys working part-time at RiverSea Gallery, a large contemporary gallery in downtown Astoria representing close to 200 artists. Annie’s passion for advocating for and working with artists is paramount in both of these positions. An award-winning artist herself, she also occasionally exhibits her work regionally, working in a wide variety of 2D and 3D media.

In describing her process of selecting the work for the show, Ms. Eskelin explains: “Jurying is a wonderful and heart wrenching experience. There are so many considerations to take into account regarding each artists’ perceived skill and intent. For every one piece I chose, there were two that I didn’t. Not necessarily because they lacked artistic merit, but simply because I wanted to include a wide variety of style and media, and space is limited.  I am honored to have been asked to jury this show. I look forward to seeing more artwork from all of these artists in the future.”
