The 26th Annual Student Exhibition, April 10 through May 4, is a showcase of artwork created by Palm Beach State College art students. The variety of work reflects the many art disciplines instructed at Eissey Campus: ceramic, digital and traditional photography, drawing, life drawing, applied and digital design, and painting.
The student work will also be available for purchase.
Paul Theodoris of Riviera Beach, approaches art in a way that ensures that a journey is made by the viewer.
“The idea of entertaining the eye with line and color is thrilling and brings out the beauty that resides in an artistic moment,” he said.
“I want to push the borders of conventional beauty and find the shapes and colors that I find within figures. Within art, I am fascinated by subtlety: Lines are my motivators; shapes are my focus; and color is my passion.”
For West Palm Beach resident Rebecca Foreman, ceramics has increasingly become a big part of her life. “Through my instructors and fellow students at PBSC, I have increased the quality of my work exponentially,” she said.
“I have great respect for everyone who has shaped me into the artist I am today.
“I have fallen head over heels in love with this form of expression and plan to keep it in my life forever. I someday wish to build a ceramics studio of my own where I can create pieces to sell to the local community.”
For Rosa Boutros of Palm Beach Gardens, photography breaks the cycle of time and allows her to capture fleeting moments.
“Within these quick seconds is an intricate story, a subtext of emotions hidden in a physicality that dances with light, color, and mundane beauty,” she said.
