West Shore Community College hosts annual high school art exhibition

VICTORY TOWNSHIP — The West Shore Community College art department will host the 25th annual regional high school art exhibition, titled “Faces: Emotions and Expressions” beginning March 7 through March 31, in the Manierre Dawson Gallery. 

Sponsored by the college’s Foundation and the art department, this year's exhibition focuses on celebrating young local talent. 

Area high schools were invited to enter up to five works by students and those included in the exhibit were selected by high school art teachers.
Each high school graduate participant will also be eligible for a scholarship which can be applied to one of several studio art classes offered by the college.

“This year, we are hosting Mason County Eastern, Mason County Central, Ludington, Pentwater, Shelby, and Brethren high schools,” said WSCC Professor of Art Eden Ünlüata - Foley. “This year we developed the exhibition around a theme like professionally curated exhibitions often do. Each year there is a very large amount of portrait work that is submitted, so we chose the theme of faces for this year.”

The Manierre Dawson Gallery, located in the Arts and Sciences Center, is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Friday.
