About 400 entries were received by art department faculty members, who
selected 96 for the show. The show continues through May 13.
Awards were handed out during a lunchtime reception for ceramics,
digital arts, drawing, graphic design, media arts, painting, photo,
sculpture, design and 3-D design.
Among the general category, or advanced, winners were Yoko Sekino,
Kaz, Minoru Terada, Anahit Houhannisyan, Sheruin Youssefian, Melissa
Flores, Danny Ventrella and Agneta Hurst.
Beginning category winners included Cynthia Doucote-Poliak, Eisuke
Taki, Jay Yim, Ada Safi, Greg Hunt and Patricia Lee.
"I was hoping just to get into the show," said Vikki Black,
second-year art student who won a beginning category honorable mention
ribbon for her oil painting, "Sylvester Transforming." "That was reward
enough. But this topped it off."
The student art gallery is in the GCC library and is open from 11 a.m.
to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Friday. Call
