2021 Juried Student Exhibit

2021 Juried Student Invite

April 2021, this year's selected works for the Annual Juried Student Exhibition are unique in the shared and novel experience of making art during a pandemic. That said, excepting pointed subjects, little suggests these works were done under conditions any less than in traditional, equipped studios with instructors along side.  The unflappable effort and creativity of our young artists always amazes.  Works remain solid and polished; Jones's still-life with pristine color and form, Aguirre, Huynh and Darnley demonstrate admirable attention to detail in their trainers.  Still, they are not unaffected; there is poignancy in the emptied faintly lit interiors of Cala, Tyagi, Brown and Sadikin, Stode's stalwart portraits, Villarreal's introspection, Lucas's resolve, and Velasquez's prickly tension in Ticking.  Benjamin's Spot Illustration brings relevance. Yeh's wry, Just do it Later brings a smile; humour is alive.  Seto's Sanguineous-heavymetallends a tragic sublimity.  And beauty reigns in the elegant austere architectural compositions of Kim and Yeh.  


Congratulations and thank you to all the participating artists of the 2021 Juried Student Exhibition, your work provides perspective and brings joy.  Thank you to my colleagues, JC, NS and KP and to all the participating faculty, a tremendous effort in instructing across the "distance", your patience and inventiveness have won the day.  The support of the QCC Department of Art & Design, the QCC Art Gallery and QCC Marketing & Communications is crucial in launching these community events and greatly appreciated.
