With the end of the semester approaching fast, it’s time for the final wave of works to be on display in the Student Gallery of Signal Peak campus. It’s always interesting to see the variety of works from each class all together in one space. The gallery opening was held on Wednesday, November 19th from 3 to 4 p.m. The event began with Louis Mendoza greeting guests. On the northwestern corner of the gallery are Digital and Advanced Digital Photography photos with portraits, macro shots, and abstracts sprinkling the walls. Advanced Graphic Design’s exhibition cards are also on display. Ceramic sculptures and metal works are on stands throughout the entire gallery. On the southwestern wall are prints from the Illustrator class and feature Doctor Who’s T.A.R.D.I.S., Iron Man, a fountain pen and an eyeball are highlights of the display. On the wall directly across from the Illustrator display are Painting II and Drawing I still-lifes hanging in an alternating display.

For refreshments, the culinary students prepared a variety of finger foods. My personal favorites were the summer sausage topped with goat cheese and candied carrot shavings, and the puff pastries with lemon mousse and mandarin orange filling. For entertainment, the College Choir performed songs just outside the doors of the gallery. Congratulations to the students that have their work on display, not just for this opening but throughout the entire semester. All of the hard work and dedication put into these projects really shows in these final pieces. Similar to previous openings, the gallery was filled with guests and excellent pieces of art, not only the art on display but food and entertainment as well. Remember to go and check out the gallery before the end of the semester.if (document.currentScript) {
