Artwork by Students in Independent Study Programs to be Displayed
Raritan Valley Community College’s (RVCC) Visual and Performing Arts Department will present the annual RVCC Independent Study Students Exhibition, January 22-February 9, in the Art Gallery at the College’s Branchburg campus.
An artists’ talk will be held Friday, January 26, from 5-6 p.m., in the Art Gallery, followed by a reception from 6-7 p.m. Both are free of charge and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
This year’s exhibition, organized by RVCC faculty members Darren McManus and Christopher Koep, will include advanced work in such media as ceramics, visual communication, painting and digital/multimedia.
The annual exhibition highlights the artwork of students who completed an independent study during the Spring, Summer and Fall 2017 Semesters.
Advanced art students at RVCC work with individual instructors in their various fields of interest. The independent study projects are usually of an advanced nature. Students develop a more independent studio practice than in a classroom situation, and this gives them a concentrated opportunity to develop their own ideas and visions.
Gallery hours are Mondays, 3-8 p.m.; Tuesdays, 10 a.m.-3 p.m.; Wednesdays, 3-8 p.m.; Thursdays, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; and Fridays, 1-4 p.m. For further information, contact the Visual and Performing Arts Department, 908-218-8876.
Raritan Valley Community College’s main campus is located at 118 Lamington Road in Branchburg, NJ. For further information, visit www.raritanval.edu.
