Student Juried Art Show at Florida School of the Arts

On Thursday, January 14, the Florida School of the Arts will hold an opening reception for Zoom, a juried student art exhibition.  The reception will begin at 7:00 p.m. and will be held in the Main Gallery located on the Palatka campus of St. Johns River State College.  The exhibition will be on display through February 5.  Gallery hours are Monday – Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and during evening Main Stage performances. 

Florida School of the Arts Gallery Coordinator Sarah Alexander said the Zoom exhibition, which is open to all Florida School of the Arts students, will explore the theme of focus, perspective, point of view and perception.  Alexander further explains, “This could take the form of exploring time and movement (the ephemeral), fragmentation, macrocosm/microcosm, or simply ocular studies as perception.” 

The show will be juried by Russell Maycumber, an accomplished sculptor, draughtsman and head of Flagler College’s woodshop, with first, second and third place prizes awarded for art works which have not previously been exhibited in the FloArts gallery.
