Annual Student Art and Design Exhibition, Reception and Awards Ceremony


Apr. 13, 2022, 5 - 7 p.m.


Student Center and All TMCC Art Galleries, Dandini Campus


The annual Student Art and Design Exhibition will once again populate the walls of TMCC galleries with the creations of our student artists. The show will be on display April 11–May 6, offering students an opportunity to experience the professional—or, public—side of art while sharing their work with the TMCC community. The show features work in a variety of categories, including painting, photography, sculpture, and graphic design.

“The Student Arts & Design Exhibition is an excellent opportunity for students to get an introduction to the practice of showing their work in a professional setting,” said TMCC Galleries Curator Joshua Weinberg, who encourages all students—regardless of their degree program or professional status—to participate in the show. “Cash prizes are chosen by the juror and awarded by TMCC, and Nevada Fine Arts gives out special recognition awards,” he notes.

Reception and Awards Ceremony

The artist reception and awards ceremony for the Student Art Exhibition will be held on Wednesday, April 13 from 5–7 p.m. in the Red Mountain Student Center. In addition to honoring students awarded for their work, the reception will feature a special presentation by show juror, Vivian Zavataro.
