Guest juried by Yaelle Amir, the exhibition will feature selected student art from all four PCC campuses in the North View Gallery as well as a salon-style showcase of work in other locations on the Sylvania Campus.

“Where Are We Now” provides an opportunity for the college and our communities to reflect on what people have experienced and collaborated on this past year, while also considering where and how they want to move together into the future. “Where Are We Now” is an opportunity to check in, take stock and remain present amidst the complexities and challenges people all continue to face. To honor all of the students who have been making art in PCC classes this past year, the third annual college-wide Art student exhibition invites everyone to consider where we are now and where we see ourselves going from here.

The exhibition opens on Thursday, May 18. Join organizers for an awards reception and conversation with the juror Yaelle Amir at 12:30 p.m., Saturday, June 10 in the North View Gallery, which is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturdays by appointment. It is located at Sylvania Campus in CT 214.
