Student art exhibit

The 2011 Central Lakes College Juried Student Art Show runs through May 5 in the CLC Gallery on the Brainerd campus. Artist and educator Andrew Nordin of New London judged the entries in this annual exhibit. Luke Grittner of Pillager received Best of Show with untitled earthenware. Merit Awards went to Ryan Hollen, Brainerd, for his untitled pen drawing and Lindy Jo Johnson, Crosby, for “Family Generations,” a watercolor. “The students’ work is of a really high quality overall,” said Nordin. “I’m impressed with the earnestness and straightforward search for originality and beauty.” He said that all of the works he judged has, “in at least one way, great qualities.” The important thing is that the works create a dialog and a cohesive idea with the viewer.
