KEY WEST, FL, April 14, 2017— Florida Keys Community College will showcase the talent and creativity of its students at the annual Student Art Show in the Library Gallery on the Key West Campus.  Join art students, art faculty, and art lovers from the entire Keys community to celebrate a year’s worth of art and accomplishment at the opening reception on Friday, April 21, 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.  The event, sponsored by the FKCC Foundation, is free and open to the public.
A myriad of artwork created by students this past year will be featured, including pottery, paintings, and sculptures.  Some pieces will be for sale with proceeds going to the student artists as well as the Library Gallery Fund.  Several awards will be given for each category, including the prestigious $1,000 “Jay Gogin Excellence in Visual Arts Award,” named after FKCC’s late Artist in Residence and ceramics instructor of 24 years.  Attendees will be invited to cast votes for the winner of the “People’s Choice” award.
