College Student, Faculty Art Show in April

Special to The Log

The annual Northwest Florida State College Arnie Hart Juried Student Exhibition and Faculty Exhibition will be on display through April 30 at the Mattie Kelly Fine & Performing Arts Center Galleries in Niceville. Both exhibitions are free of charge and open to the public.

The juried student exhibition in the McIlroy Gallery celebrates the best of NWFSC student art and honors the memory of longtime NWFSC (then Okaloosa-Walton Community College) art instructor Arnie Hart. Students practice art professionalism and hone their skills as their works are juried by an artist or curator from outside the local area. The best works are awarded cash prizes totaling $1,500. Accompanying the Arnie Hart Exhibition in the Holzhauer Gallery is the annual Faculty Exhibition, showcasing the work of NWF State faculty in the arts.

The exhibitions are open during regular Gallery hours from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday to Friday and 90 minutes prior to most events in the Mainstage Theater at the Mattie Kelly Arts Center.
