Photos and Story by

The Northview Gallery at Portland Community College’s Sylvania Campus is hosting the annual juried student exhibition.

The show of student artwork will run from May 11 through June 10 at the gallery. There will be a special awards reception from noon to 2 p.m., Thursday, May 14. Special Marylhurst University tuition awards will be presented at the Art Beat reception. Other gift certificate awards may be given depending upon merchant donor participation (Art Media and Utrecht are confirmed).

The 2009 exhibition is open to any student registered in a Sylvania art class during the academic year or previous summer session (Summer 2008-Spring 2009). Artists may submit up to 3 pieces in any medium that have been completed during the academic year. Work must be conceived within the context of a studio art, graphic design, interior design, or digital darkroom classes taken at PCC.

A note about the Juror:

· This year’s juror is Rebecca Rockom of Froelick gallery. She holds a

BA in Art History and Italian Language from the University of Oregon

Below you will find her criteria for selecting work for a show:

These are all equally important to me when selecting work for an exhibit:

* Workmanship – skill with medium & attention to detail

* Presentation – framing or display, quality of written materials

(legible & free of spelling or grammatical errors), consistency

* Concept & originality of work

* Voice – is it true to own self & personal experiences?
