LMC hosts student art exhibit in library

Published 10:53pm Monday, May 7, 2012

The annual Lake Michigan College Student Art Exhibit is open in the college’s William Hessel Library at the Napier Avenue Campus, Benton Harbor. Nearly 75 works of art, created by more than 50 students, will be on display. Works include paintings, photography, pottery, drawings,and sculptures in 3D design and mixed media. Much of the art will be for sale.

“We are proud to highlight the mastery of painting and sculpture that our students have demonstrated,” said LMC art coordinator Ken Schaber, explaining this is the 39th year of showcasing student projects. “The art instructors have gone above and beyond the past two weeks to set up the exhibit, and we are excited for the community to see this high level of excellence.”

Schaber is retiring this month after 39 years of teaching at LMC but plans to volunteer in future years with the student art exhibit.

Among the exhibit winners is Evan Harlow, of Niles, who received honorable mention for “Curious Kids” in digital photography.

The exhibit, which runs through June 29, is free and open to the public during normal library hours.

Along with the show’s awards, several other selections will be made prior to the close of the exhibit. Bob Harrison, presdient of LMC, will select a winner of the annual President’s Award, which will be purchased by the college and becomes part of LMC’s permanent art collection. Harrison will also choose two pieces to display in the president’s office for the upcoming academic year.
