The show will feature about 50 works, including photography, painting, drawing and ceramics. Some of the works will be for sale.

“This year’s student show is a special show because we will not only be showcasing work from Temple College students but also the faculty teaching these young artists,” said faculty member Scott Proctor. Proctor will have some work in the show, along with faculty members Dave Hansen, Jeremy Newton, Tommy Holton and Jim Stinson.

An opening reception for the exhibition will be held Saturday, April 15, at 7 p.m. At the reception, members of the Visual Arts faculty will pick one piece to become a part of the permanent collection that hangs in the hall of the Visual Arts Complex. A cash award will be given to the student who made the piece.

The exhibit will be on display through May 2.

The Temple College Visual Arts Complex is located at 2105 South 5th St. in Temple. Gallery hours are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday or by appointment.
