Juried Art Show at the Good Purpose Gallery

Juried Art Show

The opening reception of the Juried Student Art Show at the Good Purpose Gallery on May 19th was a well-attended and celebrated event! It was an honor and a pleasure to represent so many talented young artists from Berkshire County high schools and the College Internship Program. Students from our CIP centers across the country submitted artwork that was juried by the same process in conjunction with this show — based on quality, intention, and content; excellence of craftsmanship; distinction in the use of design elements; and professional presentation.

All students were invited to submit work in any medium and the results are phenomenal with a remarkable diversity of artwork ranging from graphite drawings, photography, monoprints to mixed media. CIP held a contest with their students in relation to this exhibit and there were three winners and several honorable mentions.

Here is a list of participating students and photographs from the opening reception, held on May 19.
