NWC to host Northwestern/Dordt Student Art Exhibit

Thursday, November 17, 2011

Students from Northwestern and Dordt colleges will display their artwork in Northwestern’s Te Paske Gallery Dec. 2–15 during the annual Northwestern/Dordt Student Art Exhibit.

An opening reception is scheduled for 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 2, in the gallery, which is located in Northwestern’s Korver Visual Arts Center.

Three Northwestern College students will choose pieces for the show from among Dordt’s artwork submissions; three Dordt students will choose pieces from among the entries by Northwestern students. The exhibit provides students with the opportunity to interact with peers from another institution and to become involved in the curatorial process.

The artwork can be any medium: ceramics, computer art, drawing, mixed media, painting, photography, printmaking or sculpture. The only requirement is that it must have been made while the student was attending Northwestern or Dordt.

The Korver Visual Arts Center is located on Highway 10 at 214 8th Street SW in Orange City. Gallery hours are 8 a.m. to midnight Monday through Saturday and 1 p.m. to midnight Sunday.
