The Royal Nebeker Art Gallery at Clatsop Community College, partnering with Center for Contemporary Art & Culture at Pacific Northwest College of Art, is thrilled to announce a fall exhibition titled Mind and Hand: PNCA Community Showcase. The public is invited to the show’s Reception on Thursday, October 19 starting at 6pm for refreshments and celebration. Mind and Hand will be on display through December 7th in the gallery. Thanks goes to CCC’s community partners: Fort George Brewing, Sleeper Coffee, and Natural Nook for their generous support of the art department.
This exhibition – displaying over 30 pieces from PNCA students, faculty, staff and alumni – is brought to CCC’s campus gallery as a special collaboration to celebrate the PNCA + Clatsop Community College Transfer Agreement where students from Clatsop Community College will now have easier access to a BFA from Pacific Northwest College of Art.
In this agreement, Clatsop students who transfer to PNCA with 60 semester credits/90 quarter credits automatically receive a $5,000 PNCA Transfer Scholarship in addition to a merit based scholarship, which starts at $22,000. Both of these scholarships are renewable annually and this pathway allows these students to earn a BFA degree in just two years.
“PNCA has been welcoming talented Clatsop transfer students for many years, so I’m thrilled to have an official pathway that guarantees that courses will transfer for qualified students and will offer them an opportunity for a BFA at a lower cost,” said PNCA Dean of Admissions Anna Miltenberger. “Empowering students to reimagine what art and design can do in the world is part of our mission. We look forward to continuing a partnership that will inevitably support the thriving art and design community in Portland and beyond.”
Mind and Hand: PNCA Community Showcase stands as an example of the creative inquiries and artistic prowess that all artists connected to PNCA exhibit within the school and beyond. Ranging from painting to design, sculpture to performance and things in-between, this exhibition highlights the validity and importance of creative inquiries and education in the arts. May we all be ever-learning from each other and feel nurtured to pursue a life of creative expression!
